7 Puppy Naming TipsWritten by Jennifer McVey
Continued from page 1
At first glance, a couple things will stand out about your new puppy. Enjoy him or her for a day or two and take these into consideration. •Appearance. What’s your dog look like? His color, size, and personal style inspires a variety of name choices. “Stubbs” would be a great name for a dachshund pup. Or you may call a cream colored cock-a-poo “Buffy.” •Personality. Given a couple of days, your new dog’s personality will really shine through. Try “Cuddles” for sweet little guy who loves to get cozy or “Puddles” for pooch who can’t seem to find doggie door. If you want to go beyond basics, many famous dog names or foreign dog names can fit bill. Consider these favorite puppy names when making your decision.•Celebrity puppy names. Today, pooches have more celebrity following than their famous owners. Chew on “Lola,” a name used by both Hilary Duff and Osbournes. •TV dogs. “Scooby” and “Astro” come to mind if you want to honor a famous TV pup. •Movie dogs. Cool movies and cool dog names seem to go hand in hand. Cool Hand Luke’s “Blue” would be a fitting label for a variety of dogs. Or try “Bodie,” from weeper Steel Magnolias. •Comic dogs. “Snoopy” will always be a favorite, but also consider “Daisy” or “Odie.” •German dog names. For starters, try out “Fritz” or “Kaiser.” •Irish dog names. “Finn” fits well for any pup, as does “Murphy,” which just happens to mean “hound of sea.” •French puppy names. “Pierre” and “Gigi” are top contenders for any dog, especially those with a little oo-la-la in their genes. The choices are endless. However, with these simple tips and some thought, before long, you’ll have found perfect puppy name!

The specifics of course, depend on type of pet that you choose. All animals need food and water daily, as well as a chance to exercise and play.
Finding cheapest pet gear is easier than you think. Try shopping online for biggest discounts. You can try larger chains like petsmart.com or you can try smaller specialty shops. Don’t forget to try auction sites like EBay.com. I like to go to Couponchief.com for coupon codes for almost everything I buy.
