I’m a sweet little fellow
With a face that’s molto bello
I watch the clouds for rain.
I have a loving family
Life would be as sweet as candy
If I only had a name!
Liza, our planner, brought her adorable Pug to the office today. He’s a wonderful, really well behaved dog. But he doesn’t have a name. Liza is open to suggestions for names.
*He his really a French Bulldog, and not a Pug at all. However, the title goes better calling him a Pug with no name.

He is absolutely adorable!!
Thanks, Dale. Any ideas for a name?
I have been thinking… He looks so darn sweet, I can’t imagine him being Thug the Pug 😉
Thug might might be a good anti-name for him. Liza has a female Pug who is more wild, Thug might be a good name for her.
I kinda like it. It’s like when we had a chihuahua-fox terrier mix that my neighbour used to call “Killer” LOL.
Perfect anti-name. Thug is the first name on the list,
Another anti-name I thought of is Bödvar Bjarki from Hrólfs saga kraka. Bödvar Bjarki means “Warlike little bear”. Bödvar is a Beowulf in Hrólfs saga kraka. It’s a wonderful story if you haven’t read it.
How the hell do you pronounce it?
But I like what it means 🙂
Böd like bode, var like var. Bjarki = Bee-yahr-key.
I had it right, then 😉
I figured. Is Rogerson your maiden name? That’s mostly Scottish I would think. But I’ll bet you have some Viking you your blood from sometime in the past.
Yes, it is. We are not even allowed to take our husband’s last name here in Quebec! He was a MacIsaac. So both of us Scots. Though Rogerson came to Scotland by way of Normandy and yes, there is some mention of Viking somewhere…
So 1066 and All That? Have you read the book? It’s hilarious.
No, I have not… What kind of hilarious? 😉
As in a British view of the Norman Invasion.
I’ll take a hard pass. If it’s as “hilarious” as Life of Brian is supposed to be, it ain’t my cuppa…
It’s different. You have to know history to get the humor.
OK 🙂 I might give it a chance, then.
How about snickers … says my grandson 🐶💙🤓
Snickers is a good one. Thanks, Hedy. And thank your grandson for me.
Oh how sweet…that mug! I like the name Buster for him. 🙂
Buster is a good one. We had a boxer cross named Buster. Thanks, Mary Jo.
Aww! He’s a perfect model
Thanks JYP. Do you have any inspirations for a name?
I’m feeling inspired by your parody, so I’m thinking Dewey after Dewey Bunnell from America. And Dewey is just a cute name for this little guy!
That’s a good one. Thanks, JYP.
he looks like Poirot… short, clever, handsome in his own way…full of mystery.
Oh! Yes. That’s a great name. Thanks, China Dream.
He’s adorable and definitely, Tom.
Another good one. Thanks, Gigi.
Casey! (But maybe that’s an Irish wolfhound.)
Casey’s good. Thanks, Murray.
Last dog I had. He tried to eat a live rattlesnake. I had to help him with that little problem.
I let the snake go.
That is a problem. Good for you. Had the dog had a rattlesnake vaccine?
No. He was trying to vaccinate the rattlesnake. I yelled “OFF!” at him. Then he backed off. I yelled at him to go in the ‘doggie door’ and he did.
He turned around and watched me, his head: outside, his tail end: inside.
(American Cocker Spaniel!)
Sounds exciting. At least he listened to you.
Thanks Timothy Price!
He was always an adventure to hike with. He was afraid of almost nothing if I was with him. So I had to keep him an a leash. A dog like that will bring you a bear, given the right set of circumstances.
So, I called him some rude names (which I don’t think he understood.). Cancer got him eventually.
That sad. We lost our lovely Najar kitty to cancer last year.
Stage 4 cancer. It was throughout his body when it was discovered. His liver was almost gone, replaced by a tumour.
He was a great pet, but an enthusiastic hunter. I kept him in a walking harness when we walked, only partly to protect him.
It’s tough with animals because they often won’t show symptoms until it’s too late.
Thanks Timothy Price!
Tough too, when you see that you have missed serious symptoms when you are (almost?) ready to believe the dog is your best friend.
Casey was a good dog. He usually tried to figure out how to please us.
I think Cockers are always trying to please their human pals. They are fearless.
Casey was probably a bit too fearless.
Oh, Timothy. he is wonderful. What about Pug? 🙂
How about Pugsley after the Adams Family kid? Thanks, Gabriela.
That’s so good Timothy. Love it 😊
My vote is for Kenny Weatherwax and just Waxy for short – more subtle than the obvious choice.
That’s a good one. Thanks, Brian.
Well, I’ve always wanted to name a pet after a guy I worked with in the 80s: Willoughby Farqhuar.
Seems like he needs a title too.. Sir, Lord, Duke, Esquire, HRH,…??
Ha! You are clever.
That’s a farquaring good name. Thanks, Leenda.
Sempre foto belle 🙂
What a sweetie.
Pugsy… for a sweet little Pug.
A short Pugsley. That’s good. Thanks, Nancy.
Honestly I’d name him Delicious or Oli, he is adorable and I love all the shots!
Oli is a delicious name and Delicious is olifully precious. Thanks, Marina.
A ha ha, yes. I hope you tell us when the sweet pug gets his name! 😉
JYP suggestion of Dewey after Dewey Bunnell from the band America is a good one. I was thinking along the same lines, with the song A Horse With No Name in mind. If not Dewey, Gerry after Gerry Beckley or Peek after Dan Peek, the other two bandmates from America.
Hi David. I started to to go with “I’m a pug in the desert and I don’t have a name…” but I I decided borrowing from the Wiz of Oz “If I only had a name.” worked better with the last photo. Gerry and Peek are great names.
OH!!! He looks like such a good boy who deserves tons of treats just for being him haha.
I’ve always heard that a dog’s name should contain a diphthong.
For example, what do you think of a name like “MILO” ?
Milo is great. Now that you mentioned that the pug with no name reminds me of my friend Milo. Thanks, Rudi.
Another good one. Thanks, PJR.
Thanks, Lori. Do you have a name to contribute?
Oh! Sorry. I thought you were commenting on his good looks. I got it now.
Well, that too! 😉
Such a sad looking fellow — he needs a name fast!
He is a sweet little fellow. I am glad he has a home now. Noah might be a nice name. My niece once had a pug named Noah.
Noah is a good name for a desert dog. Thanks, Lavinia.
Hi Tim, I think his name should be “Bogart”. He just looks like that’s his name.
Good one. Thanks, Juanita.
How about bugs? he’s cute as a bugs ear and has long ears like bugs bunny.. sooooo cute. BTW your roses look perfect around the edges. was that a joke? I never know with you💖💖🤣🤣🤣🤣
Prefect, Cindy. Thanks for pitching in.
🙌 Yes of course..keep us posted💖👏👏👏👏👏
He is adorable, Timothy, and you pictures are marvelous. I wish I’d seen these before I modelled my pug out of fondant. They would have been such a help.
Thanks, Cindy. He’s really a French Bulldog. I learned that after the fact.
I’m new to WordPress and clicked on your blog as a first timer! I was hooked by the frenchies cute little face!
I’d call him Pug in honour of this post 😁
Do like we do with all nameless things, call him by what he is: “Dog”.
They’ve been calling him Puppy.
Hey Timothy ! He’s a having a black beauty.🖤 I would suggest .” Ashley”
Did you finalize a name? I was going to suggest Carbon!!
Hi Midnight. I haven’t heard. Good name.
Whew! So many names here.
French Bulldog…. hmmm
Dior or Givenchy
I would say Givenchy. Thanks, Resa.
He looks like Lionel to me … loveable Lionel! Gorgeous pooch …
I like that. Thanks, Julie.
Aww, Adorable! ＼(^o^)／
