Food and dogs are both pretty high on the list of “Ten Best Things in the Entire World,” so it’s only natural that some of the cutest, best, and funniest dog names around are food names! Here are 20 delicious and adorable dogs named after food!
1. Lunchbox and Pierogi
Ok, OK, so it’s not actually a food, but we’re starting with Lunchbox, because that’s what you put all the other food in!
“I named him Lunchbox because he eats everything. I got him when he was three months old and the only word he would respond to is ‘foods.'” – Tara Muldoon
“…you might enjoy that his cousin is Pierogi!”
2. Taco, Gordita, and Fudge
“This is Taco! I’d already decided on his name when I drove to pick him up from his foster, but on the way home from Ottawa we stopped at an on route and he sat down in a packet of Taco Bell border sauce!” – Carly Braden
“This is my other dog, Gordita! We thought it would sound nice with Taco, and in addition to being a delicious fatty treat it means ‘little fatty’, and she’s the skinniest ‘lil lady I’ve ever seen.”
“PS, this one isn’t mine, just a visitor at work, but her name is Fudge!”
“Food is my whole life. It’s what I do with my career, what I talk about, what I think about, so it was only natural that my dog had a food name. This is Ruffles. My husband wouldn’t let me name her Sprinkles, so here we are.” – Carolyn Poppy Sandler
“This is Tofu! My boyfriend thought it was cute and we’re hoping to get him a buddy named Tempeh one day.” – Lindsey Bevan
