The best thing about FDR dogs is that you don't have to worry about any of the usual American bulldog problems associated with these dogs. All the more unique, however, is the personality trait represented by the name itself. The name is a play on words, a pun on "FurReal" (an animated character from an animated Disney film). These dogs are very expressive and this comes through in their name.
The name, actually, earned its inspiration from Dr. Ronald D. Deering who was a veterinarian. He used the name, as it is, to refer to the dogs he routinely examined as part of his job. In his final diagnosis, he found the dogs had a genetic predisposition towards the unusual sound of the Deering mark. The result being a name which accurately summed up all that was wrong with these dogs.
The name, in fact, is pronounced "Deer," which is a combination of the first letters of each of the first letters in the word "Dogs" - "DAW-ruh-see." The letters F, R, and U stand for "ferret," while G stands for "grass." This name, surprisingly enough, came from the grass on the Deering's property.
Deering is the first and last letters of the name of the dog's original owner. After the dog was given this name, he was sent to live at the trainer's home where a female named Sunshine came along. They became good friends and the dog was allowed to visit the home during the holidays. When the time came to be an official owner, however, it became apparent that Sunshine was no longer living with the dog.
Ever wondered what it would be like to have a pet Dalmatian named after yourself? There is an interesting story behind this one of the Dalmatians that has been featured in People magazine. After giving birth to one of the animals, Sunshine decided she wanted to name him something special, so she asked her friend, Ellen O'Rourke, to help her come up with a name.
O'Rourke suggested they use the name Dalmatian because it was easy to pronounce. She also thought that it would be cute if the name was something she had done together. O'Rourke did not have a dog of her own and knew that the breed was a type that was not very popular. Still, she thought naming him something different would be a good idea.
Sunshine left the house in early August to visit some friends. When she arrived there was nobody at the house, but she found that a stuffed toy, one of her pets, was there. Thinking it might be a pet that had escaped just before she left, she picked up the toy and brought it inside. When she showed the toy to her mother, however, the toy's name was already engraved on the toy.
That's how the story of Dalmatian came to light. Finally, after much deliberation, Sunshine chose to go by the name of Dalmatian. Everyone who sees the name, including those who have never owned a dog, loves Dalmatian. Today, anyone can find a stuffed toy Dalmatian for a low, reasonable price. So, the next time you look at the name Dalmatian and wonder what the title should be, remember that someone once named their dog that very name.
Dogs are considered one of the most popular pets in North America. For this reason, many people choose to make their names come from dogs. Of course, there are some stories that tell of dogs being named more than one way. However, most dog owners simply pick a name that fits them or their dog best.
When your dog is young, he will form his own opinions as to what names he likes to use. Your goal, when choosing a name, is to match your dog's ideals to your ideals. If you're a responsible dog owner, you may want to consider one that means "rainbow." A happy yellow lab named Rainbow would make a great pet.
Sometimes dogs change their minds when they are older. So, if your dog hasn't chosen a name yet, don't worry. Just wait until he does. Once you do, you can then go ahead and choose the best one.
