Before you name your dog Max - think about it

If for no other reason, than to save confusion at the vets office, give a little more consideration to naming your precious new friend. I know a lot of people won't like this  (because they already named their dog Max), but every time I read a story about someones cute, amazing dog, he's called Max. We like to spend a few days with our new pups and a name usually just happens. Spaatz here, we were thinking something German, and well my last name lent its way to naming him after a WWII general from the American side.
 Foozeball describes our red dachshund to a T, when we first got him. If you are familiar with the game with the little ball that zings around. I know its spelled wrong.
 Miss Peaches was originally my daughters dog, I knew when we brought the dog home she would name her Pumpkin or Peaches. Peaches it was. When we got her spade, my husband went to pick her up. There were 2 dogs with the same name who were spade the day before. They asked which one was ours. My husband said "whichever is the peachiest" They got it right.The only exception to this formula was Watson. I had decided that I wanted a wire hair dachshund and I would name him Watson. It took 3 years for that to happen, but when it did, it was right.

It's not that Max isn't a perfectly good name for a dog, but it gets to a point when you think, wow, you really mulled over that one for a while. I guess I like a little uniqueness. Like if my last name was Smith, I wouldn't name my kid John. It may only take a couple of extra minutes to think of something just a little different, just a little special, like I'm sure you think your dog is.
