I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

 If I ever decide to get a dog (again, haven't had one since Fang in the 80s) I have long decided on one of two names:

  • Cujo
  • or Whosa

Fang & Fam early 1980s

Can you identify the reference/significance of these names?

Scroll to the bottom for the answer.






I can't believe that in the 41 years since the book and then the movie came out I have never met a dog owner with a pet named Cujo. All my dogs before then were named Charlie, Rolf (German for wolf), Snoopy, and Fang (named before the movie). Maybe it was superstition, but I'm sticking with Cujo up next.
As in Whosa good boy, you'sa good boy... COME ON! I'll have the most popular dog in the dog park, of course, all the other dogs will be jealous because their owners will always be repeating his name.

Of course, if it fits the dog's personality my third choice is Damn'it
