Dog Names Ending in 'yo' in Pop Culture
One day, Kenny was out for a run through his neighborhood when a small brindle colored dog started running alongside him. The pup continued to chase Kenny is a playful manner for the whole five mile run and Kenny took the pup inside when they reached his apartment. With no tags, collar or microchip, Kenny decided that the dog had run into his life for a reason and he would keep the pup. The dog's high energy and bouncy nature made Kenny choose the name Yo-yo.
Kenny adored Yo-yo but he was unsure of how the pup felt toward him. Yo-yo was unpredictable, snappy and unable to control himself. Kenny ended up in the hospital a few times, needing stitches but he continued to go home with a positive attitude, ready to train Yo-yo. Kenny would work with Yo-yo to curb his bad behavior and hoped that as Yo-yo aged, he would calm down. However, the pup continued his sporadic behavior and Kenny decided to call a dog behavior specialist.
Kenny worried that the specialist, Bernice, would judge Yo-yo too quickly and tell Kenny that his dog was hopeless. When Bernice arrived at Kenny's apartment, Yo-yo charged toward her, getting inches away from her face before Kenny caught her (something the dog did frequently). Kenny apologized for Yo-yo's behavior and gave the dog a chew toy to distract him. Bernice reassured Kenny, telling him how beautiful Yo-yo was and gave him some training tips. She also told Kenny that Yo-yo was "a lot of dog". The session ended and Kenny got to work on training Yo-yo.
A few weeks later, Yo-yo launched himself through the apartment window, trying to chase a woman and her dog who were out for a walk. While Kenny caught Yo-yo before he could do any harm, he knew that something needed to change. While Bernice and Kenny tried for months to train Yo-yo, it was of no avail. The dog's aggressive nature was not being curbed and his "close calls" were becoming more frequent. Kenny made the heartbreaking decision to put Yo-yo down as he was worried one day the pup would truly hurt someone.
Kenny was tortured by his decision and missed Yo-yo terribly but he learned that he had a bigger calling. Kenny started taking classes to train and rehabilitate aggressive dogs, working with Bernice and her organization. Since owning Yo-yo, Kenny has gone on to help numerous dogs and even become the vice president of the Humane Society of the United States. He owes his devotion to dogs to Yo-yo who definitely was in his life for too short of a time but showed him his true life's purpose.
