As 2013 winds to a close, we tend to look back at the year behind us, reflect on our adventures, triumphs, milestones, family and friends, and of course, on the dogs that touched our lives in the past 12 months!

If you invited a new puppy or dog into your family in 2013, there’s a good chance his or her name is on this list – Vetstreet’s Most Popular Puppy Names of 2013!

While the top ten in both boys’ and girls’ names stayed fairly consistent with years prior, there are a few “rising stars” on the list, names that are gaining in popularity as we sail into the future. Zoey and Luna are two of the trendiest girl names, both jumping higher on the list than in previous years. Diesel is the boy name sliding its way toward the top.

    My mini-dachshund is Heidi but my daughter’s mixed breed rescue, who got out out of the gate and fortunately was found – we were all so upset but she is the fastest, most long-legged, most energetic, indefinite breed dog I
    have ever seen and I have seen many in 60 years!!!

    my babes name Cookie is number 57 but to me her name is number one. It fits her perfectly. She’s one tough cookie. We are from NYC. She’s sweet in the inside but tough on the outside.

    My Babies are Hannah Marie (The Basset Empress) & Sampson Wesley. All our 4 legged children have their middle names from one of the 2 legged family members. That way they know if they are in trouble too, when we use their middle name! LOL And yes it works as well 2 or 4 legged!

    I’m really surprised that my dogs name didn’t make the list. For female or male. Her name is Dakota. But I guess that’s ok, must mean her name is unique 🙂
