Human Dog Names in Pop Culture
Shirley Braha, a thirty-two-year-old former television producer, adopted Marnie from an animal shelter in Connecticut. Marnie had run away from her previous owner and wandered the streets for weeks before being taken to the animal shelter. Her previous owners had called her, 'ChiChi', but the animal shelter staff started to call her 'Stinky' because the poor little dog smelled horrible when she was first brought to the shelter. When Marney arrived at the shelter she was blind in one eye and suffering from a severe bacterial infection. The shelter staff was concerned that the small dog might not make it.
Shortly after Shirley brought Marnie home she lost her job. It was a depressing time in her life but her little dog truly lifted her up and provided non-stop companionship and emotional support. At that time she really started to launch Marnie's career by taking pictures of the small little dog. Although a natural poser, Marnie doesn't let her fame get to her head. She knows when the camera is focused on her but she never comes across as aloof or superior. Instead, she presents the personification of being reachable and sweet.
Marnie's fame doesn't just focus around still photos. One of her short videos has been played 55 million times. The little dog with the human name has become a true celebrity. She appears at parties all over New York City and has been photographed with innumerable celebrities such as Larry King, Taylor Swift, and Bette White.
One of the unique characteristics about Marnie that sets her apart from other online celebrity pooches is the Facebook that she is not overly attractive. Many would say that the pooch is only modestly cute. Maybe it's her humanlike characteristics that truly draw in fans. Instead of being picture perfect she is more real-life genuine. At the age of 13, Marnie is still going strong and continues to go on daily walks with her owner Shirley. Despite her advancing years, the little dog shows no indication of slowing down.
Human Dog Name Considerations
Nowadays, dogs play many roles in their humans' lives. The canine is a protector, helper, lifesaver, and provider, but above all, the dog is a true companion. It is a canine's human-like characteristics that make people want to name their dogs after their human counterparts.
Unlike many other animals, canines have a very social nature. They live in packs with their furry counterparts. Their entire focus is on ensuring that the pack survives which means they protect each other, take care of the young together, hunt food, and even sleep alongside one another for safety. When a dog is removed from its wild canine pack it is capable of forming just as intense of a relationship with their human caretakers. This is why such friendships between a dog and a human can truly grow.
When considering a name for your furry best friend, it is normal to want to humanize your pet. You should bestow a moniker on your fur buddy that truly gives the animal the prestige and respect they deserve. The name you pick for your pooch is not only a handle but it also develops emotional meaning, so pick one that is close to your heart and which you truly enjoy saying. You could name your pal after a friend, family member, or maybe just choose a name that you truly like.
