The first question to answer when bringing a newly acquired dog into the home is: “What shall we call himor her?” This delightful little book offers guidelines and suggestions to help pet owners come up with the perfect answer. For instance, what is the canine’s type and character? (It would be plain silly, for example, to name a Great Dane Fluffy; or to call a male canine of any breed, Brenda.) But you might want to make a fashion statement, or say something about yourself when you name that pooch. (For instance, a music lover might bless his puppy with a name like Beethoven or Vivaldi.) Perhaps the author’s wisest suggestion is to hold a family conference, simply to make certain that everybodyincluding the dogis comfortable with the new name. Here, in any event, are 1000 ideas for naming that puppy. They’re listed alphabetically, and enhanced with dozens of endearing color photos.
