I'm interested in people's opinions of naming a dog "Brown Sugar" after the Rolling Stones song. A lot of the dogs in this line are named for songs: Monday is Blue Monday, Stormy is Stormy Monday, Ozzy is Crazy Train, and there's another Rolling Stones dog whose name I forget.
Sire is Brown Trout, and the breed are known as "brown dogs," so "Brown Sugar" fits really well. I'm just totally unaware if there are still people who are offended by that song, its title, and references to it, or is it generally accepted as part of our culture?
This is providing the puppy survives her dam's mastitis.

I'm puzzled by naming anything after any Rolling Stones song. Never did care for those guys.
I'm kind of touchy on race issues but wouldn't have a political problem with it, with the caveat that I'm white. Aesthetic problem, however ...

Wow. Hard to comprehend.
I bet you're not a big fan of Ozzy Osborne (sp?) and Black Sabbath, either.

More than the Rolling Stones, but not huge. Couldn't tell you why.
I do have endless admiration for Keith Richards' continuing ability to draw breath, however.

I am sure I "can" name her that. I hope to compete with this dog, though. There are some old-time dog names that stand out as really racist. I hope if mine is perpetuated in record books and pedigrees, people will more often think "clever name" and "great song," or at worst "geez, what bad musical taste"...not "wow, this sport is racist."

Personally, I LOVE it! Not that I'm any judge of good taste, of course.
