Idget received his name thanks to the absolutely ignorant,yet undeniably interesting, actions when we first got him. Like a lot of dogs, he thinks feces look like a yummy snack... however, he partnered this with taking his half-full or empty food bowls and burrying them. I thought that he was carrying them off until I watched him bury bowl after bowl for about 4 days. As a loving southern owner I figured I should lovingly deem him as Idget, versus a frustrated term of Idiot.
I chose it cause he was a fat little boy (Taroh in English means little fat boy) when we got him and then we nursed him back to health and now he is a happy and healthy boy. But unfortunately he has got 2 weeks left to live. He was the best dog I have ever owned in my whole life. He always was peppy, happy, and energetic. I love you Taroh-chan.Andrew
I spotted this white dog in Panarama City while attending a fish fry. I knew that he was displaced and hungry. He was so skinny and frail, there was no way on earth that I could do anything but help him, no matter how long it took, hours, days, weeks. Turning my back on him was not an option, and never did that cross my mind. It took me 4 hours to coax him and gain his trust for him to come close enough for me to give him some fish to eat. For my own research and from the advice of unknown people that I have met on the streets, parks, a fast food drive-thru, etc., I am very sure that this dog is a Korean Jindo. The descriptions, both physical and personality traits fit this dog with uncanny likeliness. I started calling him White Dog as a temporary name hoping to find his owner or a suitable home before becoming attached to him. However, 5 months later, I have not found anyone that I feel trustworthy or capable enough for me to turn this wonderful dog over to. His name White Dog is no longer temporary, he is White Dog and I can't imagine parting with him.
My beautiful border collie/ shepherd mix was named "Chooch," as I found him at the railroad station while headed to work one day. I had the pleasure of having him in my family for 12.5 years, until he passed away in August of 2005. I know that all dog lovers say this, but to us - he was a gift from God, and he will always be remembered (and missed.)
i put dazy for my pekepoo because ive always wanted to put that name for a dog and i spell it DAZY not daisy DAZY
the best pet in the world was our German Shepard, Thor. Never will have another like him.And he loved us too.
My litle mixed terrier is named Palmer because he was found on Palmer Avenue in Glassell Park.
My Tessie is a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier. She was named after my very first dog (a terrier mix) as she looks remarkedly like her.
I named my German Shepherd Mix male dog Gizmo because of his cute ears just like in the movie "Gremlins."
Simpsons fans may recognize the name Miguel Sanchez as an alias used by the lawyer (law-talkin'-guy), Lionel Hutz. Every time we introduce our dog, we say, "say hello to Miguel Sanchez!"
