Please Don’t Name Your Bird Dog That Either
My Facebook news feed has been busy with pictures of new puppies delivered over Christmas. They are all adorable and have me envious. I’ve never seen an ugly bird dog puppy. There are bird dogs I like the look of better than others when they are fully grown, but I challenge anyone to send me a photo of one ugly as a puppy. Let me reiterate; BIRD DOG PUP. There is such a thing as an ugly puppy and it is called a pug. Go ahead, Google “Pug Puppy Pictures.” What you’ll find is proof of aliens visiting earth.
Anyway, it got me thinking about dog names again. Last year, I offered the blog post “Please Don’t Name Your Bird Dog That” about names inappropriate for the self-respecting bird hunter. This year, I implore all the new bird dog puppy owners to employ a little creativity in their name selection process. And, it just so happens VPI Pet Insurance issued a press release on January 3rd ranking the most popular dog names during 2010. In other words, here is your definitive list of top 10 names to avoid in 2011.
1. Bella (holds the top spot for the second consecutive year)
There is no doubt thousands of bird dogs with these names will develop into some of the best hunting machines on the planet. I simply prefer a name that stands out equal to a pup’s talents.
