Few years back I remember reading that Brazil had passed a LAW banning people names for dogs..... here's the link to that story:
We have always given non-people names to our dogs. Over the years we've had Senna (Irish Setter), Mitzen (German Shorthair), Kira (German Shorthair) and now Tika. We have Dolly, too, another German Shorthair, but she came to us with that name.
A good friend of mine once named her mini-longhaired dachshund "Puddles." Wondere how the darling got that name????
