Dog Names Meaning Crazy in Pop Culture
One such dog has a very different reason for being called Nitro. Although some would still think it means he is crazy, Nitro was a bomb-sniffing dog made famous for being the longest working canine bomb detective in history. Born in 2006 in Slovakia, Nitro was a mostly black German Shepherd who seemed to be born to sniff. Hired by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol in 2008, Nitro worked alongside his handler, LT. Mike Norman for 10 years until he passed away right before his official retirement date.
During his illustrious career at the OHP, Nitro went on more than one thousand bomb threats and sweeps, did bomb sweeps for several United States Presidents, and even did some work for the bands U2 and Kiss. He also worked at many different Oklahoma State football and basketball games. Throughout his years with the OHP, Nitro worked "like a dog," never wavering or taking a sick day or vacation to relax. In fact, Nitro's way of relaxing was to work bomb sweeps with his handler, practicing and sharpening his awesome skills. Nitro was so tough that his partner Mike did not even know he was sick or in pain until he was unable to wake him up one morning.
The courageous bomb-sniffer was supposed to start training his replacement, K-9 Bob, that day so he could retire later that month. But, sadly, while Mike was getting K-9 Bob certified, Nitro passed away. Though Nitro was suffering from a lingering urinary tract infection, it is not certain that is what caused his death. Mike said he feels that he was blessed to have spent so much time with Nitro. Despite the new partner, K-9 Bob, it is not the same as having your 10-year partner at your side. K-9 Bob is helping to ease the pain of losing Nitro, but he will never be forgotten.
Dog Name Meaning Crazy Considerations
Making the decision to add a member of the family is difficult. You do not want to jump into anything because this is a long-term commitment. You and your new four-legged friend will be spending a lot of time together over the next decade or so, especially if your new furbaby is a puppy. So, once you find a dog that you think will fit into your family best, you then have to figure out a good name.
While many people who get pets think up a name just by how they look when they first see them, others like to wait and see what kind of personality their pooch is going to have. You really will not know your dog's little quirks and idiosyncracies until you have spent some time together. For example, you can name a black dog Blackie or a white dog Snowball, but those names just describe how they look, not who they are.
Each and every furbaby has their own personality; just like us humans, and no two are the same. Even if all the puppies in the litter look alike and they are all running around like crazy, it does not mean they are all crazy. However, if you happen to get the dog who is, we have a list of names that mean crazy for you to pick from if you need some suggestions.
