From Bark Obama to Stinkerbell, our dogs’ names really do say a lot about our own personalities.

Some dog owners have been going the extra mile to stand out from the pack when choosing their pet’s name.

So much so, those who work with dogs have been left scratching their heads at some of the weird and wonderful names given to their four-legged clients.

They have taken to Reddit to share the funniest dog names they have ever come across – and we can’t help but laugh.

Reddit user u/Sigma_Rho asked in a thread: “Veterinarians of Reddit, what are the funniest pet names you’ve had come into your clinic?”

Here’s just some of the responses that made us chuckle – including Wedgie, Sausage Pizza and some surprising others.
