As a doting pup parent, you know your job is a big responsibility, but it’s also highly rewarding. Dogs rely on us to get the love and care they need and in return, you get to enjoy the hours of cuddles and playtime. As fun as it is to have a furry companion in your family, you also want to give them the best life possible! It doesn’t take much for your dog to feel like he’s living the life—all you have to do is follow these three simple steps.
You lock eyes with your new furry friend at the shelter or an adoption event. You know it’s meant to be, so you scoop them up and take them home.
There’s so much to do! Paperwork, vet appointments, new dog gear—toys, beds, treats, and home decor are a must! And of course, you have to name your new family member.
Like two-legged kids, you don’t have a lot of time to get your know your new addition before giving them a moniker. For us, Yellow Dog and Sundown were fairly easy to name, but Mocha—now affectionately and more aptly named Squeak—was more difficult to pin down.
Maybe you’re like us and are indecisive about your new dog’s name because you just don’t know their personality yet. Or maybe you want something unique. After all, some of the most popular names might be getting old—who wants to be the third Cooper or Bella at the dog park?
Either way, Shutterfly’s dog name generator can help.

When it’s time to open your doors to the buying public, freshen your nest with these simple tips.
Yellow Dog wanted some new headshots, so we invited photographer Billy Poon over to capture Yellow in all his glory! Of course, Yellow was a little ham for the camera. Sundown tagged along, but he was more interested in getting petted by Billy than taking pictures, except when it came to cookies!
So we’ve been vacationing and enjoying the holidays. But we’re back! And we’ve got lots of good content […]
The name’s Dog, Yellow Dog. I was a stray on the mean streets of Bakersfield and picked up by […]
