One lucky Lab can definitely claim to have a completely unique name! Not only that, it has won him a title, The Wackiest Dog Name in 2015!
A Labrador Retriever named Baron Von Furry Pants topped the list of Nationwide’s 2015 Wackiest Dog Names!
Kathy Warren and her family have always found the names of show dogs very entertaining. They thought it would be fun to create a quirky nickname for the newest member of their family –a black Labrador Retriever.
They wanted to the dog’s name to be both regal and fun. When Warren studied their new Labrador’s physic, she realized the hair on his back legs was longer than the front, making it seem like he was wearing furry pants. That’s when the name Baron Von Furry Pants was born.
“Every time they call his name at the veterinary office, everyone in the room turns their head,” said Kathy. “People always laugh when they hear his name and see the long hair on his back legs. It really suits him.”
