10 Most Common Dog Names

common dog names
When we adopted our black lab two years ago, my husband was really into watching spaghetti Westerns. He had become fascinated with the western Django, which originally was a 1966 film starring Franco Nero. Now, of course, when you mention Django, most people think about Jamie Foxx.
But I just think of my best furry friend who we brought home from North Shore Animal League one brisk November day back in 2010. Although she is a girl, we named her Django.
At the time, most people didn’t even know how to pronounce her name. Just drop the D, I’d say. Strange choice for a beautiful female puppy? Sure, but we’ve never been one for convention.
Yet once Jamie Foxx’s Django took off, there have been quite a few people naming their puppies Django. Who knew?

Like with babies, most pet owners try to give their puppies a unique name, but there are many who prefer tried and true names for their dogs. Some monikers are more common than others, and they go way beyond the typical Fido.

Here the top 10 most common dog names.

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian.
