Sound Off: What's Your Dog's Name?

Tell us about your precious pooch and post a photo to the gallery!

Fido is so yesterday. How about Bella, Chloe, Sadie, Ginger...or Bob?

According to many websites measuring people's preferences, the top ten most popular dog names seem to be trending toward the human side, perhaps reflecting our sentiments for man's best friend as being "one of the family," now more than ever.

If you shiver at the thought of scratching "Frank's" belly, however, you aren't alone. Many people prefer more fanciful names that reflect a dog's personality or circumstances like "Trouble," because he's always getting into it, or "Chance" because he got a second one after you adopted him from a shelter. Some names are just out of left field: Take "Taco," for instance.

Where do you fall, Northport? Take our Patch poll, and tell us about your pooch's name in the comments. While you are here -- upload a photo of your pet to the gallery!

No pooch? Don't feel left out. If you are in the market for a dog in the new year, try adopting from the .

(Cat lovers, don't fret! We'll run a similar poll soon on your four-legged friends.)

Tiki. Tiki is a chihuahua. However, she is a really the biggest Chihuahua I have ever seen. So instead of a teacup chihuahua we have a Crock Pot chihuahua!

My 12 yr old german Shepherd was SAMSON which was as descriptive as it could get! Sadly he just passed before Xmas. All of our hearts are broken. We are comforted only by the fact that he died at home in our arms and is awaiting us at Rainbow Bridge. Mike
