3 Biscuit

I have a tiny fox terrier. The name Biscuit fits him perfectly. Cute name for a cute dog.

Biscuit is ADORABLE! Perfect for a small fluffy dog, like a Maltese or a
Even a golden retriever. But personally, my favourite name EVER for a dog is; Socks or yogurt. They're totally funny names that will suit dogs with fun and affectionate personalities

Hi my opinion is that people should call their dog Biscuit because it is a really cute name my brother and I want a new puppy and we both really want to name it biscuit if it is a boy. I LOVE THE NAME BISCUIT!

Biscuit, it's a perfect dog name. We have a biscuit colored beagle hound mix and it suits him well. It just so happens its also a children's story book collection about a dog called Biscuit.

4 Spike

From Tom & Jerry. - Userguy44

Do not name a fancy pink poodle this.

It's a hip name. The best there is. Finnick, Biscuit, and bronzey are awesome too. But Spike is the best. Snoop and browser are cool too.

I have a friend that we call Spike when he's really MAD like REALLY MAD

29 Bob Barker

My Beagle is named Bob Barker it's a awesome name. It can mean a lot of things also " Bob Our Beagle, Big Oh Baby, Best Out of the Box, etc etc. Barker ( self explanatory if you know Beagles)..

My dog is named Bob Barker. I call him Bubba for short. It's a perfect dog name, in addition to the obvious appeal of a celebrity with last name of Barker, Bob was a fierce advocate of animal population control.

Bob is by far the most sensible name on this list. It is short, sounds funny, and is just plain awesome. Heck, it's a good name for a BABY!

Bob is the name of my dog... My family fought me but they all love the name... Just gets awkward when you meet someone with the same name as your dog lol
