Dog Names that Start with 'Ph' in Pop Culture
The plot of Wishbone followed the life of a Jack Russell Terrier with the name "Wishbone". This awesome dog lives with his owner Joe Talbot and he often daydreams about being the main characters from famous stories in literature, such as Joan of Arc or Robin Hood. Wishbone is a bookworm of a dog and quite intelligent, fully capable of drawing parallels between what happens in the stories he likes to daydream about and what is actually happening in his real life. This makes for a very interesting show as viewers get to watch while Wishbone learns a lesson through books that can help him solve his problems in real life. Not only does this entertain, but it also does a great job of encouraging the importance of reading literature.
Our spotlight dog, Phoebe, was one of five Jack Russell Terriers who portrayed Wishbone. The others were dubbed Soccer, Shiner, Slugger, and Bear. A few of these names most likely come from the fact that appearance of Wishbone is a short-haired, white Jack Russell Terrier with brown spots; one that is directly on his eye (thus names like Shiner and Soccer). Although we don't know much about why Phoebe was chosen to portray Wishbone, it may have been for many reasons such as if she were more lovely than the boys, or perhaps if she could perform a certain trick more efficiently. Whatever the reason may be, there is no doubt that it's a good thing she was chosen as she got to add to a wonderful character that many love and remember!
If you have a Jack Russell Terrier that reminds you of Wishbone, perhaps you could consider calling her Phoebe in honor of the dog behind the dog. It is a cute, simple, yet unique name that has a positive and upbeat meaning. Even if you do not have a Jack Russell Terrier specifically, the moniker Phoebe is definitely a wonderful option to consider.
