I never saw any of these and now it's been six in the last few days, what the fuck happened?


Southpawe

One guy got to front page, so others want to be the next.


PlantChem

This, and it gives other people ideas. I think it’s more fun than just a picture of a cute pet, personally.


Pearse_Borty

New trends set since the first guy did it probably


eros_bittersweet

It's an infiltration of techniques instagrammers use to "drive engagement." Post the pic along with a question prompt that people want to answer, reply to a few comments to make it seem like you're actually interested.


SpankMyPatty

I feel the same! This is probably the 4th or 5th post that I've seen asking for Name ideas... it's getting a little repetitive


Veganfart

Seriously. The past day on Aww has been a million people asking for names. I bet half of them already have names, just want karma.


00telperion00

Yeah. Something about naming a pet, an animal you plan to spend the next decade plus of your life with, off the back of a reddit thread just doesn’t sit right with me. It should be a bond between you and your new best friend. Not a popularity contest.


Veganfart

Exactly. It may be “just a pet” to some, but naming them is so special. Cant wait to see posts featuring a positive pregnancy test and caption “going to be a mom/dad, what should I name my baby?”


Liamnewel

Just called him zuma


sourpatch71

Bandit


TheUnUltimateWarrior

As a fan of Bluey, I like this name.


knightress_oxhide

I slipped on my beans!


flubba86

Oh Rita.


BrettTheThreat

Awwwww biscuits.


LionMcTastic

Oh cheese and crackers!


Mordercalynn

Bluey saved me from near suicide caused by Cocomelon.


Gigglemonkey

WTF is up with the parents being normally proportional, but the kids having GIANT GODDAMN NOGGINS? It's super disturbing.


Re_Post-It_Notes

I hate cocomellon with the burning of 1000 suns


suziehomewrecker

You know, if you go into Netflix’s desktop site, you can block it forever and for always. No more godforsaken melons ever.


mannequinlolita

And all the copies on yt. There's so many. It's hard to escape if you don't close out of a video fast enough!


alexledsak

Yes!!


the_revised_pratchet

Bluey, and Hey Duggee here.


kitterific

Yes! I came here to say Bandit as well thanks to Bluey.


ThatsFine9

Also came to say Bandit.....or Telemachus....or Bert Handsome.

Go, Bandit for the WIN!


emceelokey

When the pandemic first hit I signed up for Disney+ mainly for the Simpsons but ended checking Bluey out and ended up watching the shit out of that show! I'm in my mid 30's with no kids but I loved everything about that show.


thefrostmakesaflower

My brother showed me it recently because of my nephew but I found it so funny! I think I might binge it by myself now


objectlessonn

Gonna shatter some people’s brains here and say Bluey and Bingo are both female.


Adrastaia

My 3 year old is obsessed with this show and I told my husband that they're both girls and he refuses to believe me


Charles_Chuckles

But Bandit and Chili genders them several times throughout the show lol They both say "Be a good sister" or "Where's your sister?" Or "Girls!"


Englishmuffin1

Bluey sets unrealistic parenting standards. How the hell can I be as fun as that?


MountainImportant211

Mums around the world swoon over Bandit


BrainstormsBriefcase

He legitimately won Australian Father of the Year in 2019.


freshfromthefight

You're a good dog Bandit Heeler


TheRealCJ

He's got that dad bod furries crave.


TheSharkAndMrFritz

Because we only see the most fun 8 minutes of their day.


randomiser5000

My two girls think they're Bluey and Bingo but they're both Muffin.


Pohtate

Fucking lol.


flubba86

Haha, yep, can confirm. I have 2yo and 3yo girls, they think they're bluey and bingo, but they're def socks and muffin.


TheSharkAndMrFritz

I think this is true for most younger viewers. Putting my over tired 4 year old to bed last night was big Muffin energy.


clumpymascara

That made me lol. My 18month old is Socks atm. Doesn't really talk and bites everything.


BrettTheThreat

Laughed out loud and woke up my wife. Told her your joke and she also laughed out loud. So at least you've got that.


PhilL77au

This IS **UNACCEPTABLE!!!**


soylentcoleslaw

If you have kids as imaginative as Bluey and Bingo, you just have to follow the rule of improv: "Yes, and..." Yes, I accept your ridiculous premise, here's something I can add. I hope my kid has that kind of imagination, I sure didn't when I was that age.


Ninotchk

Bluey will teach you.


enilorac1028

Or Bingo! Or mom or dad. Come to think of it I’d love to hear someone name their dog mom or dad “ugh dad took the biggest crap today, and mom was humping the mailman in the yard”


aeo1us

In Bluey it's Mum!


TheSharkAndMrFritz

Her name is Chili. Have some respect!


willclerkforfood

And Chili and Bingo are red heelers. You could go with Stripe or Muffin (but I wouldn’t name a dog after Muffin…)


itsamemarioscousin

Poor old Muffin. She just wanted to be a ballerina...


ny_rain

meticulous_marmot

“I’ve got bum worms!”


ThedirtyNose

Looks more like Stripe


BrainstormsBriefcase

More of a socks if you ask me


ravindimantha

We might have a winner here!


Tim_Tam_Slam_2310

I have a Blue Heeler named Bandit! We named him that because he has black spots over both of his eyes and it looks like he’s wearing a bandit mask


Infinite_Surround

Dog tax


Draano

Yes, must pay dog tax.


Crixer

That makes sense, and I like the name. I have a Red Heeler mix named Copper for obvious reasons.


TheSharkAndMrFritz

This dog has some Uncle Rad patterning too. Radley Heeler.


teslalacat

Shooby-Doowah


StaleyDaBear

Just so you know, Bluey, I'm coming for that stump, because it's Stump Day, and you can play with it as long as I have to rip this stump up, then it's time for your stump!


whiskeynlemonade

Lookin' good Lucky's Dad!


TheSharkAndMrFritz

STUMPFEST!!!


RosaRisedUp

Parents had a dog named Bandit when I was born. Such a cool name.


qroga

Any and all names in that cartoon are awesome: Bluey, Bandit, Chilli, Trixie, Calypso, Bingo, and Muffin!


ooga_booga_booger

My best friend has a blue heeler named Chili!


Sillygirl190

Lol I said both, Bluey is cool too!


jsmitherzz_

My uncle had a blue heeler named Bandit and he worked on his ranch in Nebraska. I love that this was the first name I saw 🥺

Bevan


DoubtfulAmbivalence

This! an ACD is gonna steal all your damn food and lunch money and your partner if you’re not careful (they are the best doggos)


JesseLaces

Might be more of a Smokey by the look of his fur.


kittykathy92

Me and my cousins got blue heeler puppies in the same litter when we were kids. Ours was named Smokey and their’s was Bandit 🥲


chinny1983

Wombat


lokigodoflies

Was going to say. Eats, roots and leaves. The Aussie will get it


boringoldcookie

He should stick around next time


hazzed82

This gets my vote


theaardvarkoflore

looks like a Hank if I ever saw one.


sharonna7

I used to listen to a story on tape about "Hank the cow dog". I love this suggestion ❤️


Sir9toes

I loved those books as a kid! Now I’m a father of 3 girls, all under the age of 6 and they enjoy me reading a chapter to them before bed. I secretly enjoy it just as much as they do if not a little more.


sharonna7

That's so awesome!


sushipusha

My girls grew up with Walter the Farting Dog.


BikeLoveLA

Fallback to Henry as appropriate


stary_sunset

I tell you hwhat. Hanks a good name.


holographkid

LCMDR_Lailard

Scum_of_the_earth022

MrHall

I clicked to suggest Gary. he's just a Gary, there's no explaining it 🤷‍♂️ lil Gaz 🥰🤗


garyfugazigary

i agree


DandelionZoo

Bluey after the Australian cartoon about the Heeler family!


capncoke

Greatest kids show right now.


aeo1us

My wife and I use our 6 week old baby as an excuse to watch Bluey.

Hell. Just own it. I have a soft spot for Octonauts and Bubble Guppies. Lol

secondhandvalentine

My daughter is 13 months and she's been watching it since she's 4 months. She gets so excited to see it's fucking adorable. We got her a bluey plush for Xmas when she was 6 months old and she lost her shit. I didn't think she liked it that much lmao


SpinningDespina

A real Aussie blue dog would be called Red!


Apexmisser

For sure. I'd say call him ranga though not red.


peechyspeechy

That was my first thought too!


Blankyblank86

In Australia we call the red heelers bluey


rlovelock

Blue


Uriel-238

Bucky.


cbrwp

Red.


Lotus_Lovehaze

My first thought as well.


outragedtuxedo

this is the most aussie name here


mochajon

Roscoe


codipherious1

My best friend of 15 years was a blue named Roscoe he passed in 2016


OU_Maverick

"Whenever I was a child I wondered what if my name had changed into something more productive, like Roscoe and born in 1891, living with my aunt Roseline."


mochajon

Such a good tune


OU_Maverick

It's truly amazing. Gets me every single time.


RaunchyBushrabbit

Rosco P. Coltrane ?


TRLK9802

I have a 17 year old cat named Roscoe, after Rosco P. Coltrane. I love it, I love it!

Grappler1

We just called ours Blue. Best dog ever.


Scum_of_the_earth022

Same, has a good energy, that was my first childhood dog aswell


justmattyboy

Eeyore or Dundee are my first thoughts.


mplsmark

Cotton


pdxarchitect

Our Heeler just passed after over 18 years. His name was Chase, which suited him well. Good luck with the new pup.


redpepperdeb

Ash he looks like ashes


Penguins9022

Uniqniqu

I like Dusty.


Henoboy99

ZZ Top fan?


doeekor

Our dog is named Dusty after grandpa noticed him always covered in dirt


coldandwet

Can confirm, Australian dogs love The Ashes, as long as they aren't in England.


sockTHPS

Herman


-B-H-

My Blue Heeler that died this year was named Magnus. I adopted him and didn't pick out the name. His sister I had before him is Freyja. Natural Norse stepsiblings. The name fitted him.

BURT

Bluey

Bruce!


PluckyPickle

Aussie Cattle Dog? You must follow Aussie naming rules. If he's more blue, you call him Red, and if he's more red, you call him Blue. There is no why. This is the way.


kiwi_vandal

Wayne. Wayne Kerr, it's a good Aussie name.

I see your TAZ. I think Barry might suit better though given he’s blue...


existenceispaint

Mad Max or R.W. (Road Warrior)


RadialSpline

To be faithful to the source material, the dog’s name was Dog.


sagelf

Second I saw this dog, my brain said, his name is Max.


Artsap123

Francis. Frank for short.


georgealmost

Idk why he looks like a Tarzan to me


Kittentits1123

I don't have a name suggestion, I'm just here to say all my bad feelings turn into good ones looking into those little eyes. Oh. My. Goodness.


GingerchimpWaspfeet

Nugget


flathead_fisher

Drongo or Alf Stewart


purple-circle

Australian naming convention dictates that a name should ideally be the opposite of what it is or represents. Anyone with red hair is called blue or bluey. Large people are nicknamed slim. So a name like like rusty or red would be fitting.
