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

"Sporti" - Sporti
“Our Hero” arrived at our house on October 17, 1988, which was our daughter Julie’s 12th birthday. Julie and Sporti immediately became inseparable. Sporti was a member of our family. On July 30, 1996, there was a terrible storm in Wildwood, New Jersey. Julie and her beloved Sporti were watching TV when lightening struck our house. Julie was unaware of any problems, but Sporti knew something was terribly wrong and made her follow him to one of the bedrooms where the bed was on fire. Thank God they escaped. Everything else was just ashes. Sporti left us for a better place on November 26, 2002. On that day we lost our best friend and a part of us went with him.
