For those of us w/o the 'speaking', two-legged pets in a similar thread (though I supposed you parent's can get involed, too ) what are names of you dogs, past, present and future?

Right now I've got SWMBO's 11 year old retriever/shep mix which she named Nala many years before I met her.

I used to have a great beagle named Sammy.

...Thinking of adding two beagle pups to the household and the leading names are:

Arrow (I still listen to Nillson's The Point....brings me back to childhood in a serious way)
Roo (because that's what beagles do)
Ralph Nader

I have a Beagle / Basset Hound. I wanted a Basset and planned on naming him Flash, but as soon as I saw him, he just looked like a Louie to me. So, Louie it was. He's 7 years old - getting pretty gray around the eyes.

He's the best dog I've ever had

Before we were married, SWMBO bought an 11 pound Shih Tzu and named her Cookie. She's a pretty cool dog, but I feel pretty unmanly walking her around the neighborhood.

My last dog was Sara, a ten lb poodle from my first marriage. What a great dog. Not very manly, but she grew on me and when I got divorced, I took her with me. She died of cancer two and a half years ago. What an awesome friend!

Now we have a Bailey and a Madison, the Old English Sheepdogs. They are brother and sister and are crazy as heck. They are good dogs, but man it is a big change going from one great, perfectly behaved dog to two crazy puppies.

I am a big YES fan and use to have a German Shepherd that I name "Olias of Sunhillow" after one of John Anderson's album. Use to win a lot of tickets to there concerts by showing his AKC papers......

Those are nice looking dogs - I assume they're the ones in your sig. How are they with shedding?

"Troy."

We went to the shelter, just looking around, not planning on adopting anyone. We'd been watching a lot of "Animal Cops" and really wanted to get a dog. Now, I have NEVER been a dog person, they scared the hell out of me when I was a little kid. We just wanted to look and see.

But, as soon as I saw him, I knew that he was our boy. What sealed the deal, though, was that they had already named him "Troy." We both liked that name a lot, we were planning on using it if we had a boy (SWMBO because of its classical connotations, me because of Troy Brown). It just felt like he was really, really meant to be ours.

So, even though we had no intention of adopting any dog, much less one that we knew would grow to be ~100lbs, it really felt like we had no choice in the matter.



If we ever get a basset or something sloppy like that, I'm naming him/her "Trethewey"

No dogs currently, but in the past I have had a Bud (thanks A-B) and a Shorty. Both mutts. I will, one day, have me a Vizsla. I always liked Zeus and Apollo (Magnum, P.I., anyone?) but she'll probably end up with a Hungarian name of some sort.
