Food Inspired Name Considerations

Your mind may turn to a food-inspired dog name for a myriad of reasons upon bringing home your new friend. Perhaps your new pooch reminds you of a dog that you connect to a certain food; for example, the Chihuahua in the Taco Bell commercials. You may notice that your new pal takes a liking to a particular edible item, which can inspire his moniker; if your dog gets excited when chicken, steak or even a certain vegetable is in his midst, perhaps you have found his ideal name.

Your dog may also remind you of a certain food; leading to your considering that food as his name. Is there something about your dog that makes you think of a pork chop? If so, you may have stumbled upon the perfect name for your pooch. Should a food bring to mind a particular memory that you love to relive, naming your dog after that food is sure to help keep that memory alive for years to come. Regardless of the reason for your choice, a food inspired name for your dog may be the way to go.
