How important is a dog name? Well let's think about this.
How often do you call your dog? Who will hear your dog's name? Will you be writing to anyone about this dog?
Now that you think about times you'll use name, maybe you should put some thought into what that dog name is.
I mean, if you have a Great Dane who weighs 120 lbs, you might not want to call him something like Baby or Tiny. Or you might... it's a personal thing. Personally, Tiny would be hilarious to me.
I can just imagine calling, "Tiny, come here boy!" While a neighbor is watching and for first time sees this "Tiny." Now that could be an interesting look to receive!
Maybe you have a dog that has a bit of a fiesty side nd you think it's a good idea to call him "Killer." Maybe you weren't thinking about little old lady that lives by herself next door... waiting for "Killer" to go home so she can get to grocery store.
Are these extremes? Of course! But, haven't you heard some dog names that just didn't seem... right?
My dogs have some sort of silly names. Actually, my Black Lab, Sadie, had a carefully chosen name. I was pregnant with my first child when we got Sadie. She was six weeks old and clever as they come.
Sadie was very majestic in all her movements and attitudes. So, we decided to look at our baby name book and see what we could come up with to suit her.
Sadie is actually a pet form of Sarah, which means "lady" or "princess" in Hebrew.
It totally fit her and is best suited dog name I think we could have given her.
