Come here, Rosie Picklebottom! Get down from there, Sir Theodorable Purrsalot! If you’re looking for a name that stands out from the dog crowd, you may want to consider one of these wacky monikers.

I love creative pet names – I mean, I’m happy with Oscar’s name, but I think if I had a chance to do it over again, I’d go outside of the box for his new moniker. Something along the lines of the dogs and cats that made it onto the Wackiest Pet Names of 2015. Okay, so Baron Von Furrypants, Artoo Dogtoo, Leonardo DiCatprio and Fuzz Lightyear may not fit on a standard ID tag, but you’re sure to get a laugh every time you call out to him at the dog park!
