My friend just got a new dog and wants to give it a sweet mich sports name.
My favorite so far is Desmond.
Maizey. If you name it Desmond everyone will assume you are a Lost fan.
Our new Golden Retriever was born April 1 and the family decided this past Thursday to go with Maizey...
We also strongly considered Tooka (short for Biakabatuka).
When we bring home our new lab home in a few weeks, my wife and I are planning on naming him “Schemey” Here’s a post I started a few months ago for what it’s worth…it may have some other suggestions.
named their first dog Markley.
I, on the other hand, named my dog Dutch Master... because I cant remember where i lived freshman year.
I have two American Bulldogs and named one Maize and one Blue.
You could always go with mgodog!
Also named my dog Blue. Thought about getting a second dog named maize.
Bo was under heavy consideration.
Check him out at the Big Ten Network.
BO! enough said
Just the right amount of obscurity… giggitty giggitty
Get three dogs and name them Bo, Mo and Carr.
... I say it's "Smoker" so you can kick it when it's bad.
Biff, Bump, Bo.
Liking the B's
I say he honors history and goes with Harmon. Then he can call him "98" as a nickname.
Good call...that's my dog's name.
Zoltan. I win.
Heck, dog, kid, whatever. Just name it Zoltan.
The dog will kick you if it has a bad day.
Zoltan might be his name on his tags and vet records, but you'd better call him Space Emperor.
Mister Simpson all the way.
What kind of dog is it? It might make a difference.
This will be important in determining an appropriate name. Fat lazy dog that bites its master? Boren.
Arrogant pompous dog that wants to leave? Mallett.
Dog that throws girlfriend out of moving car? Arrington
I'm all for holding Michigan players accountable, but I'm fairly certain this is an exaggeration of what was even alleged to have happened with Arrington. Regadless of accuracy or fairness to Arrington, jokes about assault are generally not awesome.
He got drunk one night. His girlfriend picked him up at a bar. He got behind the wheel at 3am. Pushed her out of a moving car. She was bruised, but refused to press charges.
Facts are facts. There's a double standard when you repeatedly bash one school (MSU) for their transgressions (albeit on a much worse scale) than those from U-M. It's a joke, laugh a little.
I know the basic story, though this is the first I've ever heard that it was a moving vehicle. I think you're sensationalizing what's obviously a deplorable situation.
Regardless, the point stands that it's just not a funny joke.
Are you serious! Do you even get the joke!? Imagine a dog named Arrington was driving around drunk at 3am and through his g/f out of a moving car. Are you telling me you don't find it funny?
I swear to god, if this happened to a Spartan or Buckeye, you'd be laughing up a storm, but you're too damn narrow-minded to find the humor in this.
Why didn't you explain it earlier? I thought the dog was throwing (throughing?) Arrington's girlfriend out the car, and I was all Hasn't She Been Threw Enough? but if it's the dog's girlfriend I'm ROFLMAO. Dogs don't have girlfriends! And they're terrible drunk drivers!
/Actually sort of impressed that you wrote out the ... elaborate premise of that joke and were still absolutely convinced it was hysterical once you saw it in print. Way to stick to your guns, lawya.
like "Benny Oosterbaan."
this one made me laugh!! thanks!! +1 to you.
I have 2 named Bubba and Murray....first 2 roads I saw on the way home one day.
I have two beagles named Henne and Desmond. The one that was named Desmond was almost named Boubacar/Boo Boo, phew.
The next dog I will get will probably be named Maize or Yost, my brother had a dog named Blue.
Gerald R. Ford
aka, The Prez
Got a Blue Wiemeraner(SP) pup from Michigan (I live in Ohio) Thought about Bo or Big Blue, but picked the name Woodley. It just fit
Tshimanga Biakabutuka, then just refer to him as Timmy...It's great when someone asks his name and you reply Tshimanga Biakabutuka. They get that look on their face and you can explain and then fondly relay his shredding of the ohio state def.
My dog is named Ann Arbor. My cat is named Bo.
I have a Mini Dachshund named Charles Woodson. I call him Charlie, Chuck, Woodson or Woody. He smells of maple syrup.
So he is Canadian?
He is from mid-Michigan, so close enough... eh.
But my wife and I just had a boy (4 weeks old today), and I talked her into naming him Brady, and even told it was because of a certain QB/Dreamboat/Supermodel bangin person. She agreed, and is the coolest wife ever.
Not OT at all. That is just sweet. The only caveat is that your last name can not be Quinn. In which case it would be the lamest thing ever.
My last name is definitely not Quinn. If it were, I would have not suggested Brady in the first place. I tried to get the wife to go with Bo or Bennie for a middle name, but no dice.
If your last name were Thomas then it would be the most epic name ever.
Mason Blue? That would be be the coolest wife EVAR!!!
alright that's enough.
is clearly the the best name any dog could ever hope to have.
And no, I couldn't convince my wife to name ours that, either.
My wife and I named our dog Zoltan, but because she is female, she goes by Zoey. Still, she is officially listed as Zoltan on all important documents and even receives mail. It is actually pretty awesome.
As a nice sidenote, one of her dog friends is a Ridgeback named Osi (after the Giants Dlineman), and they love to wrestle. In fact, this year the real Osi and Zoltan may meet on the field (the Giants play NE in the last preseason game), but I hope that Osi the player doesn't tackle Zoltan the way Osi the dog tackles Zoey.
Thanks to getting the idea from this board some time ago, named my husky/pit puppy (pictured) Maizey Blue.
It was either gonna be a michigan name or a lebowski reference. I was thinking about "Maude" or "Knox Harrington, the video artist," but had to go with Maizey.
+1 for the Knox Harrington reference. You sir, get to name my next illegitimate kid.
( I'm assuming he's a quick dog. )
the poised italian greyhound
the day of the Heisman Trophy presentation.
My older brother said, if Desmond Howard wins, we'll name our dog Desmond. We all agreed. I loved that dog.
That is all.
name him Stay.
"Come here, stay. Come here, stay..."
Whatever he does, make him obey.
Name it Gulo.
I ended up with a female yellow lab mix, therefore, Maize
Male dogs offer a lot more options in the "Red/Bo/Carr/Lloyd" mold
That said, I'd love a dog named Lloyd so I could yell at it Ari Gold style
My dog's name is P
i named our dog woodson. we actually get lots of compliments on the name, and we live in ohio. there's the occasional d-bag OSU fan who will make a comment, but generally it's not too bad.
just name it Robinson that way you can cover about half the current team
if its a huskie or wolf-like dog you can call him barwis
I adopted a golden lab from a shelter in VA and named him Bo. He was a great dog but was always frisky and never settled down, despite his age. He passed away a few years ago. No regrets about bringing him into our home or his name.
Bennie, Bump, Yost or go really obscure and name him "Tad" in respect to U of M's first coach to lead the team into the Big House.
I too named my American Bulldog Maizie.
My wife let me go with Howard for ole' #21. I wanted Tshimanga. Howard was not a bad fallback.
The fella only has one speed...FAST.
To register with the AKC, you have to give it three names. We named our dog Lexi Ann Maize.
I have a gut feeling Dee Hart would be a good name.
