Welcome to Why Not Spot.

We’ve all heard them before: Fido, Lassie, Buddy, Sport and countless others. Many undoubtedly are from the still developing imaginations of four-year olds who are too excited by the licking and giggling to give too much consideration as to how a name, just like it’s human counterpart, must stay with a dog for life. Unlike humans, however, we are much more likely to have fun with our pet’s names than, say our offspring. After all, who would ever name their child Hershey just because he might have brown hair? But, with our pets, it is open season on descriptive names.

Some people take the naming of their pet very seriously. Content they will never be with a simple Champ.  Contempt would be visible in their eyes if you called their beautiful, proud boxer Champ. No, his name is Ali. Now that’s a name ……. And that’s a story. That’s exactly what this website is devoted to saluting. We invite folks who believe their pets are a member of the family and worthy of a name that is meaningful to share their stories. Don’t forget to include a photo.

Featured Story

"Randy" - Randy
Randy was our 12 year old Border Collie/Lab mix. Randy was named because that was my absolute most favorite name in the world. So, we got Randy before we had kids and she got the name. Even though she was a little girl, we kept the spelling with a “y” instead of changing it to an “i” because I just liked it that way. It is good that she was given a human name instead of a dog name because, as it turns out, Randy was almost human-like. She sometimes acted more human than dog, so the fact that she was not given a “normal” dog name suited her perfectly. Randy passed away in August from cancer. She was one of the best dogs ever, and I don’t think we will ever find another like her.
