Finding the perfect name for your new pup can be a challenge because you want something cool that will match the dog's greatness, and at the same time, the name needs to have good consonants for emphasis when the dog gets in trouble. How about Rex?  And that will give Idaho some love at the same time.

After the disaster with the puppy scam where some unscrupulous jerks tricked me into paying $750 for a dog that didn't exist, we DID end up getting a new puppy.  We are thrilled with our new mini schnauzer!  And also a little bit sad that pet ownership costs so darn much, and yes, we're counting the scam money.  It was all part of the process that led us to little Poppy Bon Jovi.

It might be the weirdest name ever but our family split down the middle about the name, with half of us voting for Poppy and half of us liking the name Jovi a little bit better.  Since I paid for her and I had the final word, I decided to run them all together.  It looks good on the AKC papers, and hopefully, she will never give love a bad name or be a little runaway.  Ok, I'll stop.

If you're looking for dog names with Idaho ties, these are some of the leftover ones we had on our list.  If you think of others, let me know!
