I personally know two people with dogs named Bella, three with Luna's, one with a Daisy, and my childhood dog was named Maggie. I've also known several dogs named Charlie or Max throughout my life, and currently know a Cooper, so these popular names do not surprise me. Is your dog's name one of them? My current dogs names are not some of the most popular...but they are some of the most popular breeds. See my Chocolate Lab, Sawyer, and my Golden Retriever, Rigby, below!

Okay, one more!
