So, you got a four-legged best friend home? First of all, congratulations! You have a friend for a lifetime now. When I first got my puppy home, I had no trouble choosing a name for him. I had mine decided 10 years ago. Yes! When I was 15, I knew what I was going to name my first dog and ten years later, Brutus was there. It’s a name I picked out when I was reading William Shakespeare and knew that exact moment what my dog will be called if I have one.   

However, a lot of people don’t have these things planned. Some make an impromptu decision to get a puppy home while others get one gift wrapped on their special day.
