Pretty Woman Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
When considering dogs named Edward, or, in this case, Eddie, one cannot deny the star quality of Eddie, the Jack Russell Terrier who played a furry antagonist on the hit television show, Frasier. Eddie belonged to Frasier's father, Marty. Due to his declining health, Marty moves in with Frasier. Of course, part of that package is Eddie. Eddie seems to know that his very presence aggravates Frasier, who is concerned with being a part of upper class society. Eddie and Marty represent more of the blue-collar society that Frasier seems to detest. One of the running jokes of the television show involved Eddie tilting his head to simply stare at Frasier, which seemed to infuriate Frasier. Eddie also possessed a loud bark, and while he did not bark to excess, when Eddie wanted attention, he would use his bark to almost speak to those around him. Finally, Eddie was known for his ability to jump rather high. One episode featured Frasier on a date and Eddie jumping into the air behind a sliding glass door. (The joke involved Frasier attempting to keep his date from noticing the adorable pooch.) In reality, Frasier did care for Eddie because he knew what the dog meant to his father.
Eddie was played by a Jack Russell Terrier named Moose. Moose had been surrendered by his original owners who could not deal with Moose's boisterous behavior. Moose was adopted by a trainer, who would eventually take him to try out for the role of Eddie. Moose was a hit, and he played the part until he retired. Moose's son took over the part upon his retirement.
Pretty Woman Inspired Dog Name Considerations
Rescue dogs are often given a second chance at life. Many rescue dogs come from puppy mills. Puppy mills often have many dogs in unseemingly conditions, whether it be dirty kennels or mothers who are bred many more times than the recommended amount. Of course, this is not the only way that dogs become rescued. Some are found after being abandoned by their original owners. Regardless of how a dog comes to be a rescue, they are often some of the best dogs. Given just a little love, care, and good food, rescue dogs end up being some of the best pets. Shelter dogs can also be thought of as the same way. Once a dog has been adopted from either the shelter or a rescue, they seem to have a new lease on life. They savor every moment with a new family that treats them like royalty. So, any breed is deserving of a name related to Pretty Woman, but dogs who have received a second chance at life often seem to have the happiest disposition.
