You all probably already know the most popular dog names of the year. You hear them around the dog parks, on the streets, even attached to little boys and girls, because we are a culture whose most popular names for dogs are nearly identical to its most popular names for babies. 

You know the ones: Charlie, Max, Bella, Yawn, Cooper, Max, Sophie, Yawn, Buddy, Sadie, Lucy, Yawn. Also Riley and Yawn. God, these names are so boring. 

Meet Peanut Wigglebutt.

He is a Dachshund. He does not have a boring name, and he just may be the most interesting Dachshund in the world. Witness, via Veterinary Pet Insurance:

“Peanut Wigglebutt is a kleptomaniac,” says his owner, Christine. “She stole multiple screwdrivers from our cable guy, and even stole Easter eggs from the neighbor’s yard during an Easter egg hunt.”

Multiple screwdrivers and Easter eggs! The stories this dog could tell. Along with master thief and handyman, Peanut Wigglebutt can add another title to her resume: champion. The dog won 2014's Wacky Pet Names list, assembled by Veterinary Pet Insurance and chosen by public vote. 

Peanut Wigglebutt is your wacky name champion. 

Although, to be perfectly honest, to look at the top 10 wacky names, it's a wonder Peanut was even in the running. Waffle Dots! Angus T Brackencrack! Airbubble McMuffin!
