Our little guy is constantly bulldozing himself into everything. Sometimes he is so excited that he runs around with his eyes focused on me and not where he's going and ends up running into things. He loves blocking me from walking and he runs around in front of my feet all the time so I decided to call him Tank :)

Malcolm came from the show Malcolm in the middle it was our sons fav show at the time and he named him. Maggie is a rescue so she was already named.

Well needless to say my buddy comes a running when I call his name , "COPPER "

I have named our little pug puppies German names ~
our male's name is Maynard
(old family name .... my son is so relieved that his
Dad would not let me name him Maynard and my sister
was relieved she was a girl LOL ) and our little
female's name is Matilda. Maynard and Matilda just
seemed to sound good together ....
I refer to them as our little M&Ms.

Our mother pug is named Wednesday (the day she was born, and because her mate was Pugsley) so when her litter was delivered on Tuesday that became the name of the only female puppy.  Her brothers -- Bruiser and Hulk -- were so much bigger and pushier than she was that they quickly earned their names.

Frank, from the MIB movie and Big Hoss is from Pawn Stars plus he is really a BIG Hoss!

Love the names Chadd and Katie, specially Norma Jeane/Marilyn. Lani Kai seems very appropriate for a Pug who is associated with the beach on Hawaii.
