I just got a rescue dog named Jackson. I love the name. The one thing that I changed was the spelling. Originally, it was Jaxson. I like a dog name that kind of rings out when you are yelling at your dog. He is a black lab. I live next to a woods. So, I am probably going to have to yell out his name occasionally. It sounds to me like a Southern name. Stonewall Jackson?
