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

My dog ( a big softy lab) called Eric is currently trying to sit on my lap & failing. He doesn't realise how big he is! My last dog was called Clive, but was always called fat boy. Obviously he was fat lol. I also had a cat called Colin & my current cat is a calico because she is a calico, but most often called bitch tits shock

I know a guy who had a horse called 'business'. So if anyone phoned his office his secretary could say he wasn't in the office as he was 'out on business'...

The winner of the terrier group at Crufts last night was called Alan. His kennel club name is Saredon Enigma-like Turing's machine, hence Alan. grin.

I think that is very cool.

A local dog rescue had a greying English bulldog called Barbara - thought it suited her so well.

Met a lovely wee spaniel the other day called Caramel, I couldn't imaging shouting that across a field though, although our Doberman is called Luther (I didn't pick the name btw honest) although he does answer to stinky as he has a penchant for fox poo. I would like a dog called Kevin thoughhmm

Our retriever is called Ruby so I can shout "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby" a la Kaiser Chiefs
