What You Named the Happiest Dog in the World

One of the questions in my survey asked you all to choose the best possible name for the dog you see below.


You voted. Here are the results, in the best possible form — pie chart form. And can I just say right now that I am a little disappointed that so many of you picked names that I posted as obvious joke selections and not as legitimate, proper names for young dogs? Very disappointed.


Clearly, Waffles was the most popular choice, followed closely enough behind by the choice that I interpret as “Your options suck and I can do better.” The write in candidates, BTW, are as follows:
  • Cromagnetismo
  • Dogcat
  • Banjo
  • Professor Happy J. Zoom
  • Zuberancy
  • Ernie
  • Davey
  • Happy Dog
  • Maxwell
  • Stinkbutt
  • Hobart
  • Lady McPorkerton 
  • Sport, Tiger and Champ (in a single triple-entry that I shall accept as a single, three-barreled name). 
You’re all wrong, I have decided. I’m naming him Stingo, after everyone’s favorite character in Sophie’s Choice. No. No, wait. I’m just going to name him Peter MacNicol. There, everyone loses.
