Why did we chose the name Dante?

One of the reasons we chose Dante and not some other dog, was because I like to go hiking by myself sometimes and I wanted a dog big enough to dissuade random strangers from talking to me. And in truth it works! People who look like trouble give us room to pass, and dog lovers swarm towards him with arms open and kisses which he enthusiastically accepts. He also has his own pack and gets to carry his own gear and water which is quite convenient for me.
|He's a mama's boy, lets be honest.|
And while his enthusiasm can get him into trouble sometimes, and he tends to challenge my training patience at times, I also love that he is enthusiastic about life. I like to joke and refer to him as my perpetual five year old. Because like a little boy, he is everything adventure, ruff and tumble, crazy excitement for life, and then ready for a good nap and kisses at the end of the day.
