Nineteenth Century Dog Names

Nothing to do with knitting, and very little to do with genealogy. Whilst I’m busy working on a piece for ‘Ply’ magazine, I thought I’d share with you this rather cool list of 19thC dog names I compiled a while back.

These were all found in The York Courant and The Birmingham Daily Post, so are the names of coursing hounds and bull terriers. I got the bull terrier names from dog show reports.

I missed a trick when we named our new pup back in November. Should have called her ‘Titsy’.
