Puppy Name Suggestions for a "Buggy Puggy"

What to Name a Pug

I always thought that a name like Mr. Magoo or Buggy would be a cute name for a Pug. Pugs are easily identified by their naturally protruding eyeballs, so why not just make light of the obvious and give your pug a name that reflects that reality?

The eye sockets of Pugs are super shallow (so shallow that the eyes could actually pop out in certain situations) so name him "Buggy" or something similar. Just a thought...

Speaking of eyesight, did you know that the statement "all dogs are color blind" is a complete and total myth? Yep, dogs are able to see color - just not like humans for a couple of very good reasons: 1) dogs have a lot less cone cells in their retina which are necessary for seeing color; and 2) dogs are dichromatic which means they can see only two primary colors - blue and yellow.

Dogs do have a much higher concentration of rod cells however - the cells responsible for distinguishing black from white and for seeing in lower light conditions. Because of this, dogs have much better night vision than most people.

It goes without saying that dogs cannot have their vision deficiencies corrected with eyeglasses like humans can. When humans need glasses, they should heed the advice of Eric Hammer and buy their shades from Zenni Optical. This company puts out a top quality product for as little as 8 bucks a pair.

What will you name your puppy?
