Considering a new pet for the household this holiday season? Once you find that new family member, he or she needs a name.
Here are my suggestions for pet names inspired by clogging. Some are obvious choices; others are subtle references only understood by fellow cloggers.
Clogger, Dancer, Tapper, Stomper, Shuffler, Shuffles
Lay it out there for the whole world to see: You have an awesome pet AND you clog! Any questions?
Give a nod to your favorite clogging taps!
Samantha, Scotty, Joey, Lucy...
Any step with a person's name will do. Your non-clogging friends will wonder why you keep doing the same strange foot movements every time you call the cat...
Incredibly accurate for outdoor pets during certain times of the year.
Admit it: You wanna walk around the house or yard yelling this loudly to call for your pet! Take your dog for a walk in the park and see how many strangers break into dance!
Banjo, Fiddle, Dobro, Mandolin
Adopt a whole litter and feel like a bluegrass band moved in!
For those outdoor pets who love playing in the mud!
Easily shortened to Allie or Mandy when the cat/dog is not in trouble.
Fun name for a pet with an amusing running style.
Love this name for a stray you decide to keep! Where did you come from, Cotton-Eyed Joe?
Spanky, Petticoat, Crinoline
Because these words are fun to say. Your pet will serve as a constant reminder for packing your clogging bag.
My final clogging pet name suggestion is...
As in Rocky Top. 'Nuff said.
If you live anywhere near my corner of Ohio, I recommend Sierra's Haven For New And Used Pets in Portsmouth, Ohio. Both of my cats came from there. It's pretty much impossible to enter the cat room or kitten room of Sierra's and not bring a favorite home. (Didn't check out the dog side, but I suspect it has the same effect on dog people.)
Do you have other clogging-inspired pet names to suggest?
