2019 Wacky Dog Name Nominee

That’s not your grandpa, that’s your dog!

When you hear Kimberly Bevan yelling for Grampaw, don’t be surprised when her little dog comes running around the corner.

People have always been curious about why Kimberley gave her rescue dog such a “mature and human” name.

“Actually, it was in a movie I saw,” she explains. “They were like, ‘Oh my gosh, Grampaw is here,’ and this dog comes up and I just thought it was the funniest thing.” She goes on to say that people are always surprised when they see him.

The pup’s old-timer name has secured him a spot on the 2019 Wacky Pet Name nomination list.

When it comes to naming your pet, Kimberly suggests pet owners go with something that’s fun and fits the pet’s personality. So, while Grampaw does have a lot of energy because he is young, he does indeed have an old soul.

The Bevan family purchased pet insurance from Nationwide because they wanted the peace of mind that comes with the insurance. “We just thought that [pet insurance] was a great deal, something that’s going to help us out with our dog in case there’s something catastrophic that happens to him, just like we do for the family.”
