Pop Music Dog Name Considerations

There are a surprising number of songs written about dogs. We all love dogs, but you would be surprised to find out how many iconic artists found inspiration from their dogs. This means that dogs have a strong presence and influence in pop music. Some of the best artists of our generation, as well as past generations, wrote about their dogs, and the public thought that they were singing about their partners. The names we have chosen were inspired by pop songs, singers and artists who loved dogs as well. All of these names have a direct link to pop music, whether obvious or subtle. Pop music is universal. When a pop star drops a new track, you can be sure that it will be heard around the world. They have a certain universal appeal. You’re a pop star (singing into your brush counts) and your dog, who supports your dreams no matter what, is one too. Paying homage to the greats is just one way of showing your love of music, your love for your icons and your dog. By giving your dog one of these pop music inspired names, you will be giving them a name that is universally understood.

He was supposed to be my young nephews puppy after he had appendicitis. However right after his release from hospital, he went on 2 weeks vacation and asked us ( my husband and me) to watch the pup. Those 2 weeks were all it took to fall in love with this tiny dog. He was like our child. By the time my nephew came home, we were hopelessly in love. He decided to give me the pup because he saw how much I loved him. He had already named him jack ( sparrow) I loved jack Johnson at the time so I was like ok. We've been together as a family for over 12 years now. He's still a great companion. Although he's losing sight and hearing he's still my baby boy.
