Dog Names Meaning Moody in Pop Culture
We've all heard about and probably seen Grumpy Cat on social media and even in the news, but many do not know about Anuko the Grumpy Husky. Not yet, anyway. He is quickly becoming popular though, thanks to his funny looking markings above his eyes that make him look really angry. Jasmine Milton bought the two-year-old Siberian Husky to help her deal with her bipolar disorder, but when she noticed how moody his eyebrows made him look, she had to post it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The photo of Anuko went viral within days, and Milton decided to make Anuko his own Instagram page. Since then, he has gained over 11 thousand followers and has been the focus of many news stories.
When she posted his “betrayed” photo on Instagram after she pretended to throw his ball but didn’t throw it, Anuko's popularity skyrocketed. Although Milton had not planned on making any money from her dog’s popularity, when offers for modeling jobs and news stories started coming in, she decided “why not?” In fact, she made 500 pounds for letting him appear twice for Christmas, and she has actually made 20 thousand pounds from his continuous modeling jobs since then. The funds will not go to waste though, as Milton is using the money for a medical degree.
Although Anuko may look grumpy, Milton says that is just his facial markings and that he is one of the most lovable pups she has ever met. In fact, he loves everyone, and even though he can scare people with his look, he will just slobber all over you while licking you rather than barking and biting. Anuko is not just a cash cow for Milton, of course. He has helped her through many tough times with her bipolar disorder, which is a mental health condition that can cause periods of severe depression and periods of manic behavior. Milton says that Anuko can cheer her up by just looking at her with those silly eyebrows.
Another grumpy pup has hit the big time as well. Earl, the grumpy puppy, is a Puggle, which is half Beagle and half Pug, with a sour face has his own Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages as well. His owner, Derek Bloomfield said that Earl is not an unhappy dog, but he does have an underbite, dark complexion, and wrinkles, making him look a bit moody. Apparently, Facebook readers agree as he has almost 100 thousand followers now.
Dog Name Meaning Moody Considerations
Does your pup look like they lost their best friend? Is your fur buddy happy one minute and mad the next? Maybe your dog is just moody. We probably all know people who are moody, but they probably would not like to be named for that trait. Your dog, however, may enjoy being called something cute that represents that inner anger and angst. Of course, you don’t want your dog’s name to be something mean or rude that would make others think you don’t like your furry friend, because you love your dog. But, giving your pooch a silly name that means moody may be nice and it sure would fit your little buddy.
Just like humans, dogs have their own personality. Whether they are a huge Great Dane or a tiny Chihuahua, they may be bossy, funny, easygoing, or even just bad-tempered. Unlike naming our human children, we tend to wait until we can figure out our dog’s uniqueness before we give them a name so that it will fit. As you ponder the perfect tag, consider the names Fang for the dog who likes to show their grit, or Dozer, for the pushy pup. Is your new addition always getting into things? Mischief would suit! A canine that loves to create chaos could be called Eris, after the Greek goddess of chaos.
