Top Accident-Prone Dog Names

Top Accident-Prone Dog Names, dog names, pet names, dog accidents, pet insurance
I once had a Rottweiler/Doberman mix who was accident prone. She broke her toe within the first week we brought her home while running in the yard after a squirrel . She stepped on glass and needed stitches within the first year. She chewed on a battery in her puppyhood but we caught her in the act in time. After a trip to the vet and some very harrowing hours, she was fine. She had an iron stomach. Her name was Schatzie which means sweetheart in German, and despite her big and bulky presence, she was a real mush and lived up to her name.

It got me wondering if most dogs do actually live up to their names. Our Django is a sweet, lively yet chill Lab mix. She's also a girl and hopefully not worried about being named after a male character in a Western! But the name fits her and when my husband had his heart set on a male dog, but I fell in love with this cute female pup, we compromised. We brought her home and named her Django. I can't imagine her with any other name now.

Interestingly, some dogs are known to have names that are, well, prone to getting into compromising situations, according to Petplan Pet Insurance. They surveyed their clients and found that the dogs with the following names were found to be both accident-prone and most likely to eat something they shouldn't. 
1.  Stella
2.  Tucker
3.  Dakota
4.  Emma
5.  Jake
6.  Cooper
7.  Riley
8.  Teddy
9.  Winston
10. Gracie

Did your dog's name make the list? If so, is he/she accident prone?

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.

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 :
