We have had 6 dogs in the past 15 years all named after dead songs, we have had Ripple,Althea and Cassidy for our females and Aiko and Ashbury for our males as well as Molson because i sold grilled cheese and Molson at the shows in the early 90's

We just got a samson, but need more names (we want to register it and have been instructed to use the kennel name plus samson and another name or two). we were thinking maybe the song that was most played after s&d...anyone have any guesses or even a song that was usually played in the same set?
we were also thinking of darkstar since his dad had star in his name...any other star names besides cats under you can think of?

Our drummer had the world's best tour dog, "Hey Now" - he was named in response to all the deadhead dogs named Iko. He was loyal, friendly, and had a taste for hot dogs. His only downside was that he was a runner. Turn your back on him and he's a mile away. I remember him running away in Alpine Valley, WI in the parking lot of a show (I'm sure he was following the aroma from someone's BBQ grill). He was never found. A few months later a friend who lived in Boulder saw Hey Now running the streets. He found the folks taking care of him - they found him in the parking lot after the show and he was so friendly they took him along for the rest of the tour. They happily returned Hey Now to Tim. He passed on the the great big picnic in the sky a couple of years ago as an old man in his 20s.

We've had 2 blue heelers over the past 25 years, found the first one's name looking through song names and band names from albums, ended up on Poco and had her for 17.5 yrs. Current 6 yr old is from Lord of the Rings hobbit Pippin, great dog and breed. Way smart, sometimes too smart, and tons of energy.
