Poppy is a top­per for dogs

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

AN­I­MAL LOVERS all over the county are fully aware that dogs be­come very much part of the fam­ily and a new sur­vey has re­vealed that when it comes to nam­ing our ca­nine friends there are five names that top the list with Poppy be­ing the most pop­u­lar choice in Wex­ford.

The sur­vey was car­ried out by Pet­ma­nia as part of their re­search into find­ing the 20182018 Puppy of the Year.

It ap­pears that ev­ery­thing from ex­treme weather events and mu­sic icons to TV pro­grammes can all have an in­flu­ence when it comes to nam­ing a pooch.

Some of the names re­vealed in the study in­cluded Ophe­lia, Elvis Pugs­ley and Thor! The top five names across the coun­try were com­posed of: Bella, Al­fie, Cooper, Milo and Poppy.

Around 500 ‘pet par­ents’ were con­sulted for the sur­vey. In Wex­ford there is a ten­dency to give dogs hu­man names too with some of the pop­u­lar choices be­ing Joey, Ge­orge, and Jack­son. The pub­lic can now help find Ire­land’s Puppy of the Year by vot­ing on­line at www.pet­ma­nia.ie/vote and the win­ner will re­ceive a year’s sup­ply of food and groom­ing and a two-night stay in En­niskoe House, County Mayo.
