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

"Maya" - Maya
We adopted Maya at 8 weeks old from a rescue the week before Christmas 2008. She was the sweetest of the litter and a big size for a puppy. My kids and I went back and forth with names before I even went to pick her up. My youngest son wanted Snowball, but since she was black that didn't stick. We settled on Molly, but when I saw her she reminded me so much of the two dogs we had lost, like she had a little of both in her, and I thought she was all mine so I decided to call her Maya. Everyone liked the name so it stuck.
