I need your help.
I have a page on the website that is for my readers to tell their dog story. My hope was to have people tell their story so it might help someone else with the same problem. But lately there has not been any activity on this page. Could you please look at this page and contribute something if you can.

Naming your dog is one of the most fun and rewarding things you can do to bond with your pet.
The Veterinary Pet Insurance company does a study at the beginning of each year of the most popular dog names that come in on pet insurance policy applications for the previous year.
Since they are the largest pet insurance company in the United States, their database offers a clear view of the dog name trends that are happening across the country. Max takes the top spot, and they say your Dog’s Call Name should be rather short; two to three syllables is the recommended length.
If your new puppy will be registered with the AKC you will need a name for the official registration papers as well as your puppies call name.
Both names are important, but in different ways.
The registered name often begins with the name of the kennel that the dog came from. This is also a part of his or her show name. All registered names must be original
Besides the kennel name the registered names can include the name of the mother and the father. Any combination of ancestors along with a theme is very common.
However, AKC limits the name to thirty-six characters in length, including spaces, so if the names are long it can certainly present a problem. For an extra fee the length can be extended up to fifty characters.

Registered names often have no relationship whatsoever with the call name.
Another thing to keep in mind is that if you have more than one dog the names should be different enough that the dogs can easily distinguish them. For example, naming one dog Holly and another one Molly would not be a good idea.
Many people choose to name their dogs right away; in fact, they may even have the name picked out before they ever see the dog.
Other people want to keep the dog a week or two before naming them so that they can choose a name that matches the dog's personality. And still others prefer a name that describes the dog's physical appearance to some degree, such as naming a Big Dog Bruno or a Black Dog Blackie.
Originality is nice but when it comes to dogs, just like people's names, there are certain names that are all time favorites for particular breeds or dog stereotypes. And just as with human names, dog names sometimes become popular because of a TV show, a song, an actor, a movie, a rock band, etc.
Since dogs can live to be up to twenty years or longer it is suggested that the name be one that is somewhat evergreen; simply meaning that the name will have significance in the years to come, even if the namesake doesn't.
Once you have decided on a name you should begin using it as much as possible. The goal is to find ways to get your dog to associate the name with a meaning. By using his name regularly he will quickly pick up on the fact that the name refers to him.

Special Report Finally Reveals Pet Insurance Secrets
1. Trimming your dog's nails and grooming his or her fur at home saves money spent on professional groomers.
2. Practice good dental hygiene. Daily brushing of your dog's teeth has significant returns.
3. Don't skip vaccinations or flea and tick prevention . Vaccines protect pets from painful and tragic diseases such as rabies, and fleas and ticks carry harmful diseases such as the plague that may also be spread to people in contact with pets.
4. Buy fewer toys , and trick pets into thinking those toys are new, time and time again.
5. Be creative with ways to make toys more interactive. Consider buying Buster Cubes or Kong toys for dogs to give them more stimulation while they eat or enjoy treats.
I hope these tips help your budget and most importantly the health and happiness of your dog.
One additional tip on the list is to consider pet insurance. It is one that I firmly believe in as well. For those on a budget, it can really allow you to do the best for your dog when you need it most.
Pet insurance dramatically reduces the costs of large veterinary bills, ranging from emergency care after an accident and cancer treatment to preventative check-ups and care including vaccinations.
