Introduction

Movies can inspire us, especially a story about man's best friend - the loyal dog. Such a movie is the one called Eight Below, a story of an Antarctic research base team, who because of an approaching storm, had to bail out and leave a team of dogs chained in the snow for what they expected would be just a few days. Sadly, they were unable to go back until spring because of harsh conditions. The story is about the bravery of the dogs and how they managed to survive. Come spring, these loyal dogs had only lost two of their number after becoming free, and they returned to where their owners left them in spring to greet their masters. Who else but a dog would come back to their owner after being left to die! That is the loyalty you will get from your dog. When you bond with a dog, you have a friend for life. Therefore, a great name is important to honor the amazing dog.
