Welcome to Why Not Spot.

We’ve all heard them before: Fido, Lassie, Buddy, Sport and countless others. Many undoubtedly are from the still developing imaginations of four-year olds who are too excited by the licking and giggling to give too much consideration as to how a name, just like it’s human counterpart, must stay with a dog for life. Unlike humans, however, we are much more likely to have fun with our pet’s names than, say our offspring. After all, who would ever name their child Hershey just because he might have brown hair? But, with our pets, it is open season on descriptive names.

Some people take the naming of their pet very seriously. Content they will never be with a simple Champ.  Contempt would be visible in their eyes if you called their beautiful, proud boxer Champ. No, his name is Ali. Now that’s a name ……. And that’s a story. That’s exactly what this website is devoted to saluting. We invite folks who believe their pets are a member of the family and worthy of a name that is meaningful to share their stories. Don’t forget to include a photo.

Featured Story

Knobbie was a resident of the abandoned farm I bought back in the 90's. She was not feral but she wasn't tame either. I didn't live there but she was always there when I would go visit the place. She made it her home long before I moved in. I renovated the house over a two year period but after 6 months of checking me out, she decided to trust me. Now she's very possessive of me and her place. Her name comes from her geographical choice of residence: she lives on Bartle Knob in southern Indiana.
