Today whist out for a walk...a dog owner was yelling for her dog in the park. At speed a Jack Russell called....Shackleton...comes flying out of some bushes.

Big name, small dog! IMO Brilliant grin

{{Appeals to NMHQ to add a Dog's Name Section blush just for fun..please!}}

We used to know two (portly) black labs called Norman and Marjorie, suited them very well.
Our ridgeback is called Ruby.
On my list for future dogs are Ouzo and Raki.

I met a dog called d-o-g. prounounced "dee-ooh-gee".

My childhood dog (best dog in the world, obv) was called Trouble. My dad named her when it became obvious she was going to be a bit of a pain.
My cat is PicklePig, all cats names should be suffixed with Pig I think, I've had MuppetPig, BluePig and GuinnessPig too. (Full name, GuinnessPig Miaow Miaow Miaow)
I would love a dog, a pug to be precise. Or a Chug. That dog will be called Elvis.

Shesparkles Thu 21-Aug-14 06:58:53

I know a couple of springer spaniels called Ralph and Stanley grin, and a Jack Russell called Brian.

I LOVE human names for dogs

wickedwitchofwaterloo Thu 21-Aug-14 12:54:48

I called my mini Jack Russell x Pug...
Howl. Which obviously I think is brilliant.
My next dog I'm calling Vigo the Carpathian grin

we over ruled daddy when we bought our pup so he got to choose the name......Francisco Scaramanger........Franc for short!
We also had a Jeremy (Beagle)
