We are buying a Yorkshire terrier next week and we have already named it Kujo! We're excited for the humor he will receive as he will be no more than about 6 lbs.

I recently adopted an 18 month old Romanian street dog Husky Cross with striking blue eyes. I named him 'Cujo' as a homage to Stephen King. Cujo was the first King novel I ever read, over 30 years ago. I have always had dogs and have always known that when the right dog came in to my life, it would be called Cujo. The rescue dog took to the name straight away.
