My Toy Poodle Tazzy is named after Taz the Tasmanian Devil.
Dakota on the other hand is named after the lead singer of Papa Roach. Jacoby Dakota Shaddix.
I think he has grown into his name, if any of you like Papa Roach you would know how much energy Jacoby has on stage, and how loving he is with his fans, and his sense of humor.
While Dakota has never ending energy, he will work for hours. He loves his family and whenever someone is feeling down it ruins his whole day. He acts as though he is trying to make you laugh, whenever I have a stressed out day, or cry he will sit down and put a paw on my arm and just stare at me(or that just means he has to go to the potty, but that usually involves a high pitched bark).
He is also a big puppy, and in great shape. Dakota's middle name "gates".
Dakota got his middle name from the lead guitarist of Avenged Sevenfold, Synyster Gates (Brian Haner Jr).
Synyster is a hilarious drunk(I'll have to add that video!) and is a very talented person, but he knows how to have a good time.
Although Dakota isn't an amazing guitarist
he is talented at dog sports, and is a natural at dock diving, and one of the best in his club and he hasn't even started classes yet. When Dakota gets into one of his bored moods he will make high pitched noise and odd "talking" sounds, and is a total goof.
And some recent videos of Jacoby(Papa Roach) and Synyster(Avenged Sevenfold)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7an-BB4-lLA&ob=av3nhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94bGzWyHbu0
And that drunk video I was talking about. Syn is the one in the hat saying "pink is the new black" and "yummy".
He starts to get nuts at 4:00 into the video. *warning: frequent cursing*

My grandmother LOVES this video, she laughs her butt off each time she watches it.
