There's a lot people getting pretty precious when naming their dogs these days. What happened to the good old names, like Rover, Spot or Fido?

Well there has been now, though all he wanted was an opinion on how popular Cooper was vs Bracken. Everyone wants to get a dog vicariously through Tangram.

As long as a name has 2 syllables and doesn't resemble a command and so confuse the dog... you have to try calling it. It gets funny when pedigreed dogs get named for registration in their litters - they sound like racehorses.

Cooper has arrived. He is a little more shy than our last one on his first day but today his confidence is improving.
