great dogs

This is a partial list of great dogs I have known over the years, in vaguely chronological order.

  • Ooloo Nanda
  • Max Dash
  • Snowball Buyakowski
  • Reba Smith
  • Bubba/Baba Dash
  • that cute one with the underbite, whose name I don’t remember
  • Cosmo Belle Smith
  • Chelsie Belle Browne

My dog Max, who we had when I was a kid, turns out to have had a name that sounds like a porn star. I didn’t realize that at the time. Of course, I was only 8. When my mom was younger, they had a dog named Laika, after the cosmonaut-dog.

Feel free to submit names of dogs you have loved. The more baroque, the better.
