What we say

P&G pups

Who let the dogs out?

Mar 6, 2017

Last month, we helped the Ingham County Treasurer report that Bella and Buddy are the reigning champions once again for the most popular registered dog names in Ingham County.

Other names on the 2016 list?

Daisy, Lucy and Molly. Max, Charlie and Cooper. Not to mention Leonardo DogVinci, Dude and Meatball.

Sometimes, you have to mix in a little fun with your more, shall we say, dry public relations. The top 10 list is a great way to remind folks that the Treasurer’s Office manages dog licenses in the County, which are required by law for all dogs five months and older and proves the dog is up to date with its rabies vaccinations and that the dog legally belongs to someone.

To help put some faces and snouts to the names in the Treasurer’s Office, we also featured a few of their beloved pups on the Treasurer’s Facebook page. One thing is for sure: People lose their minds over dogs. And I mean that in the best possible way. 

At P&G, pets are part of the family. Here are a few of our favorite (and registered) snouts!
