    I vote for “Beans Explosion” because I think you get an immediate sense of their extra curricular activities!

  2. Ashley says:

    I like ZZ Scuttlebutt! once I knew a dog named Mr. Shoeshine and another one named pickle

    I think Botox is such a clever name for a Shar Pei.. I know I’d giggle if I met Botox at the dog park! :)

  4. Mark H. says:

    I vote for Beans Explosion! ZZ Scuttlebutt is definitely a close 2nd though.

  5. Jessica says:

    Umm it’s a toss up between Dr. Lola Pickles and Botox, wish I knew the story behind Dr. Lola Pickles, that being said I have to say Botox for the Shar Pei-that is pretty priceless!

  6. Carol Harlow says:

    Well, there are some different names listed, fun!
    I’m voting for Princess Booger. I always think of the movie Beethoven and how
    the mom and dad said that a dogs name should be something you wouldn’t
    mind yelling from the back door! lol
    I think I could yell Princess Booger, but I’d be crackin up! I love the name!

  7. Jennie says:

    Oh man! Botox is perfect!!! Love it! And you can’t eventually shorten it like you might end up doing with Beans Explosion.
