The Best Ryan Gosling Characters to Name Your Dog After | Vanity Fair
Julie Miner created a guide to naming your dog after Ryan Gosling (because you know, Josh Hutcherson did and now you will, too):
Noah (The Notebook)
Suggested Breeds: Golden Retrievers, Rough Collies, or any loyal dog who enjoys boat rides in the rain.
Richard (Murder By Numbers)
Suggested Breeds: Miniature Pinscher, Irish Setters, and any canine who shares palpable chemistry with the Sandra Bullock of dog breeds, the Black Lab.
Hercules (Young Hercules)
Suggested Breeds: Boxer, Australian Cattle Dog, Toy Poodle, and dogs who show lots of potential, even when saddled with burdensome dialogue and unnaturally brilliant hair highlights.
Lars Lindstrom (Lars and the Real Girl)
Suggested Breeds: Mixed breeds and untrained dogs of any breed who develop a bizarrely intimate relationship with an inanimate object.
Jacob Palmer (Crazy, Stupid, Love)
Suggested Breeds: American and English Foxhounds, Cocker Spaniels, and any male dog who exhibits a fondness for the Dirty Dancing lift scene.
Suggested Breeds: Labrador Retriever, German Shepherds, and any other dog who exhibits good-Samaritan-like impulses and hard-to-pinpoint charisma.
(I suggest that you start by choosing your puppy from the breeds found on Is Ryan Gosling Cuter Than A Puppy?)
