Maybe you berries won’t know the answer this one, but here is my dilemma. They say you shouldn’t name your dog anything that sounds like “No!” because you don’t want to confuse your dog, and you don’t want your dog to form anything but positive feelings about her name. I assume that [name]Noah[/name] would be out as a dog name. I’ve had a dog named [name]Josie[/name] and called [name]Jo[/name], but maybe it’s not the best idea.
I love the idea of calling a puppy [name]Nora[/name] – but feel guilty. I keep trying to convince myself that because you slur into that ‘r’ so quickly, it is different sound from 'No!" But is it? Or am I just rationalizing?
Maybe it doesn’t really matter. I suspect I’m going to call my puppy [name]Nora[/name], whether one should or not.
