The Sopranos Dog Names in Pop Culture
The Sopranos is an excellently written drama series. Many experts claim it is as close as the real thing to a series depicting the lives of those involved in organized crime. Although Tony Soprano is not a hero by any stretch of the term, his character is written in such a manner that Tony does display some heroic traits. He is a father who will do anything for his children. He is protective of his family, even to a fault. Although he often argues with his mother, he admires her and her health is a primary concern of his. Tony lives by a certain set of rules, and he does not violate them (even though most people would be shocked by the things Tony finds virtuous). One heroic pup stood beside his pet parent when the "dad" took a spill doing chores around the house.
People enjoy a heartwarming story involving pets. Lassie became a popular television icon because the dog watched out for his human companion. In addition, Lassie was a neighborhood hero - anyone in the area that found themselves in the midst of trouble could count on Lassie to find them and report back to his human family for help. Numerous stories of helpful pooches have made headlines, both in Hollywood (i.e., in a fictional way) and in the heartland of America. One helpful pup refused to leave the side of his owner in Argentina.
In 2017, a dog named Tony was outdoors with his pet parent, Jesus Hueche. Hueche had been pruning a tree outside his home when he fell and suffered what the doctors would label as skull trauma. At the time, no one else was home with Tony and Jesus. Fortunately, Jesus' neighbors witnessed his fall. They called the paramedics and went to wait with Tony and Jesus. When the ambulance arrived, it was determined that Jesus had suffered head injuries. Tony lay on top of Jesus, and the paramedics actually had to console and, well, cajole Tony into moving so that they could fully give aid to Jesus. When they got ready to load Jesus into the ambulance, Tony tried to hop into the vehicle and ride along to the hospital. Fortunately, the neighbors took Tony and soothed him while Tony was at the hospital. He was soon released with only minor injuries. He claims that Tony is the best friend he could ever have. To this day, Tony still follows Jesus everywhere on the property and even sleeps with Jesus when allowed. Tony was found on the streets by the Hueches, and it seems he is repaying the favor of their taking him in by being a loyal pet.
The Sopranos Dog Name Considerations
Although Cozette is the only dog featured regularly on the show, one consideration that can be used to determine whether a breed is suited for a name inspired by the hit HBO series is to find a list of pups that hail from Italy. The Maltese hails from Italy as does the Italian Greyhound. The Cane Corso and the Spinone Italiano are also dogs that originate from the homeland of the Soprano's ancestors. The Neapolitan Mastiff and the St. Bernard also have roots in Italy. Each of these dogs is worthy of a name inspired by The Sopranos.
