Right up there with our love of pizza, love of bagels, love of Italian food, and love of finding a summer parking space right near the boardwalk is the love New Jersey has for our beloved dogs.

They are a cherished part of the family, they pretty much run the house, and they more than likely get treated better than our spouse does.

We love our dogs so much, and one of the great privileges we have as dog lovers is the ability to give our beloved pet and family member a name of our very own choosing.
