News reporters are trained to gather every possible detail when working on a story. The rule of thumb is to “always get the name of the dog.”
For this story, we got them all.
Looking through the database of every registered dog in Waynesboro, we found four beagles named Buddy, four Chihuahuas (and one pitbull) named Peanut and five dogs named with a number 2. The city is home to a pair of Dobermans named Brooklyn and Bronx, and the one and only registered “mutt” is named Bojangles. Alphabetically, names range from Abbey to Zydeco.
There are five dogs named Scruffy, four named Scrappy, one Screech and one Scurry.
There’s just one “Spot” in town, a Staffordshire Terrier living on Fairway Drive.
“When you have a mostly white dog, with a brindle patch on one ear and another on the opposite eye, there’s no reason not to call him Spot,” said Glenn Doggett, who found the dog at the Charlottesville SPCA.
