Introduction

For those of you who have had, or are currently having, the opportunity to travel across this great country called the United States of America, then you already know (or are finding out) just how beautiful those "wide open spaces" of the western part of North America truly are!  The majestic mountains, primitive wilderness areas, the huge expanses of plains and the raging rivers and streams all create a composite picture of the "wild west" that some of us grew up watching depicted on a variety of "shoot'em up westerns" on TV and at the movies.  There are likely some of you who still watch them on TV and movie media.

Wyoming Dog Names Considerations

While the State of Wyoming certainly conjures up some of those TV and movie memories, it can also conjure up some interesting names for that new pup who's curled up in your lap or on the sofa beside you.  In addition to using her color, breed, gender or cute behaviors as triggers to jump-start your imagination, you could also think about Wyoming ... the mountains, the plains, the rivers.  Or, you could consider the amazing number of large and small animals, birds, rodents, amphibians and fish who inhabit the State of Wyoming.  Wyoming is a fairly large state, so "big" names like Whale or Jumbo or Mammoth for a large breed dog would work wonderfully ... or, how about names which reflect the snowy weather in the high mountain regions, like Fluffy, Rainbow or Blizzard.  Your could look up the huge variety of flowering plants, major crops or even some of the cool city names, like Cheyenne, Casper or Laramie ... the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.  For your own sanity, just keep it simple but fun.  Also, it's a good idea to think about what the name would sound like should you need to call your precious pup (as almost every dog owner must) from across the street, down the block or from the opposite side of the dog park.
