Venice Dog Name Considerations

 If you have ever visited Venice, then you have probably noticed the many dogs that run loose throughout the city's small streets and walkways. Throughout history, canines have always lived in Venice, and the citizens honor and adore the furry residents. 

The history of Venice is filled with great dogs. Venice was the home to Saint Roch; his pooch saved his life by cleaning his wounds and bringing him food. Throughout the city, you will see many statues and artwork that depict Saint Roch and his furry friend. Peggy Guggenheim, the founder of the Guggenheim Museum, is even buried beside her beloved dog companions. 

Many who visit Venice mistakenly assume that the dogs are running around are strays, but almost all have loving homes. The absence of autos and the laidback lifestyle of the city's citizens allow their canine companions the freedom to run the streets, alleys, and canals. Most of the dogs are very friendly and have upscale manners. 

If you are thinking about naming your pooch after something related to Venice then why not pick Saint Roch? You could even call your beloved furry buddy Guggenheim. If your pet is a female, then you could choose the name Peggy in honor of Peggy Guggenheim.
