I vote this one for best response to almost any post this past week!! Nearly fell out of my chair laughing. I agree whole heartedly. Now if you're black it might go over OK but you wouldn't find this auburn and grey haired fellow using that call name on a black dog.the rule of thumb to live by is not use a name you would NOT feel comfy yelling in a motel parking lot at 4 a.m.
Never would have entered my mind.I am considering using the call name, Spook. From the registered name it will have the connotation of ghost or spector. However, there may be some who will take offence I expect for its slang relation to black people. What do you think?
Agree. I know of a dog named Spook and I never even thought of the name as offensive. That is just silly. Everyone is so sensitive these days over everything.Negative connotation to whom? That is always subjective. It's his dog and he can name it whatever he choses. If someone is offended, tough turkey!
