ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — Our pets are like members of the family. So when it comes to picking out a name, there’s a lot of thought that goes into it.

“One of the most common names for a dog is Buddy – I would have guessed that,” said Jim Ludwick with Animal Welfare.
“People love their pets They have fun picking out names for them,” he said. “There are many, many, many names.”
