Patriotic Dog Name Considerations

When considering a name for your beloved dog, it is not uncommon to choose a patriotic surname for your canine companion. Throughout history, dogs have been a part of most historical movements in the country. Because of this, you may want your pooch to have a name that reflects that illustrious history. 

On Memorial Day and the 4th of July, pet parades occur across the nation. People dress up their beloved dogs in red, white, and blue to hit the parade trail in front of thousands of people. No one truly knows the exact origins of how dogs became tied into the patriotic functions, but one theory is that the tradition started in 1932 in Silverton, Oregon. Nowadays, the historic Kiwanis Pet Parade has been a Silverton tradition for decades. 

The first Kiwanis Pet Parade was organized in honor of a dog named Bobbie who was lost in Indiana but managed to make his way home to Silverton to his young owner Vades Dickerson.  The parade's purpose was to lift the morale of the townspeople.  It was 1932, the Great Depression was in full swing, and many people were experiencing horrible hardships.  Patriotism was lagging throughout the country and especially in the small town of Silverton. The members of the Kiwanis Club believed that focusing on Bobbie the Wonder Dog would be an uplifting experience that would create joy and patriotism in the townsfolk. 

The pet parade was a hit. Young and old enjoyed the celebration. It quickly became a tradition in the town. The first pet parade in Silverton spurred similar pet parades across the nation. The Silverton pet parade takes place every May to much fanfare. The downtown boasts a mural that denotes the historic ceremony. Topiary shrubs that line the street are shaped into the form of the parade's canine participants. Nowadays, thousands of pet parades take place throughout the nation.

It seems like dogs and patriotism have become synonymous, as the numerous pet parades show, so why not bestow a patriotic moniker on your pooch?
