Frank Talk About the Moose Interesting Name Ideas for the Obama's Dog

obamadog.gifWhen People reporter, Sandra Sobieraj Westfall, recently interviewed Michelle Obama, rumors began to surface that the much anticipated first dog would be a Portuguese Water Dog named Frank or Moose.

But contrary to rumors, neither the breed nor the name have been decided.

According to her press secretary, Katie Lelyveld, "They have not selected a breed. Mrs. Obama likes the Portuguese Water Dog, but she is only one of four votes."

And according to Michelle Obama, the names that her daughters are coming up with could use some grooming:

Oh, the names are really bad. Frank was one of them. Frank! Moose was another one of them... I'm like, no, come on, let's work with the names a little bit.

At Strategic Name Development we were relieved to learn that the Summa Canum (First Dog) would not be named after Barney Frank or one of Sarah Palin's pets.

And we're not the only ones. Dog lovers across America are weighing in with their ideas on just how the first dog should be named. Although not all of the following ideas meet the standards of our Petname Checklist, we are intrigued by feedback from the press and citizens alike:

  • The LA Times: Maverick
  • CBC News, Canada: StimuLassie
  • Fox News followers:
    • Porky
    • Porkulus
    • Trillion
    • Earmark
    • Lincoln
    • George
    • Hope
    • Hannity
    • Rush
    • And finally, OBAMA SHOULD NAME THE DOG "NANCY" AS IN PELOSI....AND THE FIRST TRICK TO TEACH HER IS HOW TO " SIT"
