On a personal note, we are currently without a pet. If you follow my page you know for the past 20 years or so we had two dogs in our lives, Max and Dex. Unfortunately, they are no longer with us and we are taking a bit of a break before we decide to make the decision and get a new dog and make that long-term responsibility of having a pet. When we do decide to get a new dog we will have to think of the perfect name.

When it comes to dogs, Trusted Housesitters posted an article that talked about the best "dog" names here in New Jersey. Maybe these names are perfect for you if you are getting a new "fury" addition to your family. "Nationally, the most common girl pet name in the country is Luna, and the most common boy pet name is Charlie. However, the 2023 study found that our cultures and where we live play a major role in what we choose to name our pets."
