I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a dog. I really want a little companion with whom I can go running. And if I owned a dog I’d probably invest far too much time in teaching it sweet useless tricks.
Initial research has led me to the German Shepherd, Canaan dog, and Labrador.
The biggest two hurdles for me are
1) time commitment
2) a name
The time commitment issue might solve itself within a year or so (two years at most)… but I still need a name for the dog. Schenk recommended “Doggy McBark.” I think that we can probably do better.
I’m looking for suggestions. For names and for sweet tricks that the dog could learn.
