Naming your dog can be an exciting task that is, at the same time, rather daunting! Fortunately, you can draw from a number of things to inspire your puppy’s new name. This task grows easier if you have already decided what the first letter of his or her name will be… in this case, dog names that start with B! For example, you might call your new female Chinese Crested “Bopsy” after her adorably crazy mane of hair, or you could call your new male Great Dane “Bear” for his formidable size.

Our dearly departed Bichons of our heart were Bogart and his sister, Bacall.
Their half sister Beignet and a Bichon we adopted and renamed Baguette.
We are so sad they are gone. We live with Baci ( Italian for ” kiss”) and his brother of the heart Bijoux. They are tiny Maltese and very elderly now.
We are getting 3 sibling Bichon puppies and their names will be Blossom, Buttercup and Barley.
