The guide dog school I volunteer for needs distinct names for each of their active dogs. As the biggest school in the country, that can be a bit of a challenge. Especially since each consecutive litter is named according to consecutive letters.

So since I got to see puppy pictures of their most recent litters today, I’ve got some weird actual real guide dog puppy names to share with you. I want you to imagine being in public saying “_____, sit!”

Taco

Nacho

Uhura

Yahtzee

Yoko

Quinoa

Umpire

Dazzle

Glitter

MuShu

Gremlin

Walnut

Cricket

Tiberius

Manakin

Chekov

Rumba

Which is your favorite?

And for sticking with me so long, here’s a Z litter of baby German shepherds.


And for a special treat, my little Lisa’s family!
