    What Was Your Dog's Original Name?

    like cats, like dogs..

    I'm sure many of you have renamed your pups and see how funny the old name doesn't suit your dog today!

    I'd feel weird if I call my crayola lassen! that was his original name (still is, will be in case I outdie him) from guide dogs for the blind in montana and carried to guide dogs of bay area, california. I think he was named after a mountain or a meadowfield named lassen.. I forgot, I was too excited to get him.

    my first family dog, mocha (as seen in my signature) was lady at a shelter. it was adopted for my sister, she thought it was a ugly name so she named her after her colour, very pretty mocha!

    now, yours?
    rest and sleep softly sweet locke..

    The breeder had named my dog Kinsoae, but I renamed him to Athos, because I though it was a much moe beautiful name, and worked much better for a Golden Retriever. Nice idea making this board, by the way

    We've had both of our boys since they were puppies, so Max and Oscar are their original names.

    Don't remember what Murph's original name was.

    Maddie's name was Trudy. I actually liked the name okay, but I was friends with a girl at work named Trudy. I felt that would be way too akward to name my dog after her. Madison fit her personality better anyway.

    Oz's name was Cosmo. I had an ex who's cat's name was Cosmo. Didn't want my dog's name to be a reminder. I liked Oz better, cuz it had a connection to my Cairn Terriers too.

    Gulliver's name was Lee. Oh gosh, too plain and so not Gull. He's way too unique in personality and coloring for such a plain name. Plain for a dog I mean. It would be a perfectly okay human name.

    Par...

    Gina, my Layla was named Lady too, but Lady was my mom's old dogs' nickname so we renamed her. She was supposed to de Delylah but my mom thought it was too long she shortened it to Lyla, which I hate, so I kept the twang to it by naming her Layla.
    Clark was "Little Man"
    Niño's name on the shelter form was written as "Nino" but since he only understood spanish commands we were pretty sure they meant Niño. That is, if that was his name, and the old owners didn't missunderstand and tell them his sex

    Roxy was Roxy. They just named her that out of the blue though, so she didnt respond to it very well. She almost became a Princess, but I honestly didnt think it fit her. She looks so more like a Roxy, so shes always had that name!

    Mickey's name from his owners was Drew.
    The rescue called him Bandit.
    Now we call him Mickey.

    Molly had no name with her owners, whoever they are.
    The pound called her Marlie.
    Now we call her Molly.

    Beanie was Rusty at the shelter.

    Gracie was Wolfie until we found out she had no grace.

    Jake was Male 2 at his breeder. i don't know if that qualifies as a name, but that's what they called him.
    Owned by two little pastries!


    REST IN PEACE GRACIE. NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT I DON'T MISS YOU.
