Introducing… + Tail Want to name my dog?

It’s been a long time coming…

I’ve finally found my + Tail companion. Watch the intro video to learn more about him and how you can be a part of naming him (the widget for that is here, below).

Suggestions must be unique. Please avoid human names, common pet names, or jokes that have run their course. You have until the 6th of September to make suggestions and vote for your favourites. I’ll choose from the top three based on what he responds best to.


Visit @tanglesandtail on Friday 7 September at 8.30pm AEST (GMT +10) for the announcement of his name and to ask any questions you might have… like how many bite marks do I have on my hands (currently 17)?

Thanks to: for making public suggestions and voting a possibility… and especially to Dáša who got me through my midnight meltdown – she’s the cherry on the top!
Annie for the drawing and animations.
Bensound for the music –


  1. Hey Lucy…how about choosing a name that reminds you of your home town and where your family are? In the end – choose the name you love – not the one we choose…it is after all your companion on your amazing journey. Good luck.
