Oh my goodness, let me tell you: it has been so difficult choosing a name for my new puppy! I’m a huge fan of word games and puns, I find them so incredibly interesting and mentally stimulating! My sweet kitty’s name is William ShakesPurr (PurrPurr for short) and I just know the chances are high that puppy’s name will end up being chosen from a long list of dog puns as well.
I have been brainstorming tons of pun puppy names and so I thought I’d share them with you here, in case any of my lovely readers are looking to grow their furry, four-legged families!
