Since the OP hasn't posted the name of his/her dog, I'll assume the OP doesn't have a dog ... which, by the logical of the OP ... the OP should get out of his/her own thread? :eek::confused:

Female Yellow lab.

Name: Willa.

We didn't get to choose the name, though it fits her perfectly. She's a guide dog for my wife. I like how she got her name, though. At the place she was born and trained at with my SO, when the parents produce a litter, the litter is designated a letter from the alphabet, and the names of every puppy from that litter starts with that name. Her litter had Willa, Walter, Winona, Wendy, Wagner, etc. You get the idea.

Also as long as that guide is active, no other dog can have that name. When they retire or pass away, the name gets freed up for another dog to use. So when she retires, a new puppy will be named Willa, and if she passes the training, she'll be active and no-other active guide can have that name.

We had a Shiba-Inu named Kato. Most think it's a reference to the comics character from the Green Hornet, but we got her when the OJ Simpson thing was going on and I insisted on it because I heard the attorney's name so often and thought it was cool.

It is scary that pet name related questions are common security questions.

Albeit, this is only a relevant concern if people actually use the default questions and answer those questions with real personal information.

I once knew a female golden lab called Willow. A really lovely dog, Willow or Willa is a great name for that breed :)

My dog is a cross between a Husky and an Akita, named Kita. Not very original but still ;)

The dog in my profile pic is Lucy - she's our spiteful dachshund. Our other dog is Linus. He's a fat, overly affectionate beagle.

Lucy likes to express her displeasure through the strategic placement of poo throughout the house.

Linus just likes to start howling at 5am.

It's a good thing I love my dogs...

They pooped and pissed on the floor all week. I vowed never to get a small dog and every time i came home from their house i told my dog how much i appreciate him. Their names are Simon, Daphne, and Niles.

He's my first mini schnauzer. He's such a good dog!

If yours is anything like mine was, I pray you don't have any squirrels living in the trees in your yard!

2 quick (funny) horror stories.

Belle loved to chase squirrels, especially if it was in our yard, where we had 2 very tall oak trees. Great places for squirrels, since they love acorns. Our screen door to the house was also full glass, so Belle would just sit and watch/guard her yard. If a squirrel came down, she'd bark like crazy, we'd let her out, and off she'd go. Squirrel gets scared, and climbs the tree.

One day, Belle figured out how to climb the tree. She barked when she saw the squirrel, we let her out, she went after the squirrel, squirrel went up the tree, she climbed the tree! But she had no idea how to get down, and we didn't own a ladder! So we were the only people in our neighbourhood who had to call the fire dept. to rescue their DOG from the tree.

Secondly, Belle LOVED the mailman. and our mailman loved her. Every day he came by, she barked like crazy, we'd open the door, she'd run out and jump into his arms. He came to expect it too, so mail wouldn't go flying around. Well, one day, we took her to the mall to get pictures taken, and as we are leaving, she spots a mailman on the complete far side of the mall, getting mail out of the mailbox. She barks like crazy, wrestles out of my arms, and runs full pace all the way across the mall, with me chasing after her. She gets up to the mailman as he's closing up the mailbox, jumps as the mailman (female) turns around, and cops 24 pounds of miniature schnauzer straight in the face! Mail goes flying all over the place, mailman tumbles over on her back, police who see this are running over, I finally make it over, and there is Belle, on top of the mailman, giving kisses like there's no tomorrow. I'm crying (remember, I'm an 8 year-old at this time), thinking I'm going to have to give up my dog and go to jail because she assaulted the mailman, who thankfully said it was okay and that she gets worse every day, from having 2 German Shepherds and an Alaskan Malamute who do the same thing every time she gets home!

Schnauzers.. so much fun! :D
