Chicago Med Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live to the age of 210 years old? Well, Maggie the Kelpie could have told you. She lived for a little over 30 years, which is 210 in human years. Experts are not sure whether being a Kelpie or living in Australia had something to do with it but the second oldest dog, Bluey, also lives in Australia, so there’s that. However, Bluey was an Australian Cattle Dog, not a Kelpie.
Maggie lived on a dairy farm with her owner Brian McLaren in Woolsthorp, Victoria, Australia. Up until her last day on April 20th, 2016 when Maggie passed away peacefully in her sleep, she was still feisty and acted like a normal pooch. Brian said she was still walking to the dairy and the office with him every day and growling at the cats like usual right up until the day she died. Maggie was still eating normally and enjoyed treats and bones as well.
So, what does Brian say helped his pooch live so long? Good clean living? Plenty of exercise? Good genes? Maybe all of the above or just that she was loved and treated like a queen every day of her long life. The typical canine lives about 8 to 15 years, so Maggie living to be 30 is pretty near a miracle, as far as Brian is concerned. And although he said he was sad when she passed away, he was happy that she died in her sleep, curled up in her own bed.
Unfortunately, because Brian lost Maggie’s original paperwork, Maggie did not get to be officially named the oldest dog in the world, but Brian knows it is true. The pupster that took the official record in the “Guinness Book of World Records,” Bluey, was 29 years and five months old and he also lived on a farm, so maybe it is the good clean farm life and fresh air that kept him healthy all that time.
Brian said he did not mind that Bluey took the title instead of Maggie. He was just happy to have such a long time with his best furiend. Even without the paperwork, Brian said that he knew Maggie’s age because he got her when his son was four and he was 34 when Maggie died. Brian buried his furever friend in a marked grave near another beloved family pooch under a pine tree in his yard.
Chicago Med Inspired Dog Name Considerations
Ready to name your new canine kid? Well, you should go ahead and spend some time with your fur buddy first before you choose something. It is important to find the right moniker that fits your new poochie because you are going to be using it often for the next decade or so. Whether you have a super huge pupster or a petite pup, picking the perfect title for your new furry family member should be fun. Get down on the floor with your doggo and play with them for a while and see what their personality reveals. And since you are looking for a name that coincides with "Chicago Med," we will stick with that too.
Does your pup act silly? Try the name Corny or Yaya. If your pooch is all business, Ethan means firm in Hebrew and Alex means defender of man in Greek. You could also name your furbaby by their appearance. For example, Maggie means pearl in Old English and would be terrific for a white dog, and if you have a hairy dog, try Cesar, which means hairy in Latin. If you have a brachycephalic pooch, which is a dog with a shortened or squished nose, try the name Courtney, which means short nose in Old French. Here are some of our favorites.
