Do you know who your dog is? Chances are you haven't had the dog long enough to know who he or she is yet. You don't know what type of toys they prefer, and you don't know how well they behave in social situations with a bunch of strangers. But see, getting to know your dog is serious business. It isn't just a matter of knowing their personality, it's a matter of figuring out who your best friend is. Why they do what they do, how they feel about certain things. And it's by getting to know your dog that you can better select a name. Because names are ancient, and full of meaning.
