During the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne, 1-3 May, almost 1500 people wrote the name of their pooch on our wall. The result was a mind-blowing list of 938 individual names. We've created a few lists, to highlight some of those names. Is your dog's name on our shortlist too?

Coolest name: Robert the Bruce
