Choosing a name for your pet dog can be a challenge. You want something that fits his or her breed, size, gender, or personality. For instance the dog in the picture above could be Cookie or Chuckles. Some people like to choose human names like Eddie, Fred, Tony. But please take a moment and imagine what it will sound like when you holler "LOUIE!" out the back door. Choosing a name taken from a celebrity or movie character like Ringo, Rocky, Hank or Dolly. I've pledged that if we get another dog we'll get two, both Yorkie's and name them Hannibal and Clarice or Harry and Sally from our two favorite movies. It comes down to personal preference.
