IT sounds New Yorky that the top name is Max. Beyond that, all I can think of is Zsa Zsa Gabor singing "NEW YORK is where I'd rather stay....I get allergic smelling hay......"
I really love New York City, there is just such a special spiritual energy you feel from the millions who have passed through over the decades and centuries.

No, that name came in third, behind "SHUT THE F*CK UP!" and "I'M GONNA SHOOT THAT F*CKING THING IF IT DOESN'T STOP YAPPING!"

Not Zsa Zsa, that was her sister Eva.

I'm a dog person, and even I think this is more "silly" or "misc" tag than "interesting" tag.

Small apartments small dogs. This surprises no one.

Technically, the dog's name was Harvey, but kudos.

The names I have for the tiny yapper dogs in the condo kitty-corner from mine range from "Shove It Up Your Ass" to "Bite Me" to "Shut Your farking Pie-Hole."  Little farkers start shrieking like furry Sidhes if you so much as breathe at their door.

Walk by their door for any reason: Shriek and yap.  Open your door to pick up a package: Shriek and yap.  I swear they hear me in my living room thinking about them and start yelping.  I started up the stairwell once and was confronted at the top of the steps with a furious, tiny chihuahua that had freed itself.  Figures it'd be one of those.

And I like dogs.  If I can't stand their yapping, that's saying something.  So I can sympathize with you city-dwellers.

There they go again.  I can hear them from at least 30 feet away, and these walls are not thin.  Hooray.

2014-07-18 02:20:30 PM  
Well, smack LT beat me to it.  I also would go with "Shut the F**K up," as the most popular name based upon my stays in Manhatten.

I do not.  I wouldn't hurt an animal even if I did.  I catch spiders and let them outside, fark's sake.  They just happen to be annoying enough to bother even me. ;)

If you were to put me under oath, I'd have to say I thought the teensy chihuahua was kind of cute.  But he spoils it with his big mouth.

Except for the large number of Labradors in Manhattan (look at the map that breaks down the breed by zip code).  That surprised me.

I was just in Midtown yesterday and, in just the ride from Rockefeller Center to the Lincoln Tunnel, I saw at least 6 large (Lab-sized) dogs and was wondering, why the hell anyone in a tiny apartment would have such a large dog that needs so much exercise?

You're not alone.  My husband & I LOVE dogs but we cannot stand those yappy little rat-dogs.  When they start yelping, we both have to restrain ourselves from drop-kicking them into oblivion.  My neighbor's wife (I say they're hers because I know my neighbor hates them) has 3 Pekingese-looking things that Never. Shut. Up.  I work from home 3x/week and I either have to close the windows in my office or go to the other side of the house when I call clients because they can hear the stupid things shrieking.

When my puppy was little I had a dog trainer come to the house, we went over all the puppy problems that come up: digging, biting, jumping up, running out the door, and BARKING! There is a way to train them not to do that. I'd go online and print up a number of possible solutions and politely and a note saying if this continues I'm calling animal control on ur ass! Just my .02

I have a secondhand dog, only slightly used,  and as much as I dislike her name, I went ahead and kept it.  Onyx, for a little black doggie :) I guess it fits her ok.

/figured the dog had had enough confusion and chaos in her life, didn't want to compound it by changing her name to something I wanted.

Wait, did anyone ever name their dogs that?

I adopted a twelve week-old half lab/half boxer mix from a rescue about three months ago.  The family that I got him from named him Rocco.  I couldn't come up with anything clever (hence my handle), so I just decided to keep that for his name.

That name I like, a lot, it is very dignified and is plain on the surface, but it seems to fit your doggie.  I've always named mine after Greek or Norse characters-best one was Penelope, for faithful.  Also in no particular order (ferrets and doggies) Zeus, Pandora, Ajax, Calypso, Calliope (the cat), Andromeda.  Norse names Baldur, Ymir, Fenris.  My uncle also had an awesome dog he named Thor, who was afraid of thunder, lol.  Odin or Apollo for the next boy dog, for girls, I'm thinking Hera, Io, Echo.

/always clung to the belief that animals will tell you their names, or at least what they want you to call them by
 
2014-07-18 05:43:37 PM  
I also had Sonic (cat), Brandy (obvious), and Otis, my first ferret named after his home town in Colorado.  I would never name a dog Max, or Libby or whatever is trending.  Too boring and besides, you can call a dog "Ham Sandwich" if you want and he/she will still come running to you if you're a good owner.
