Hi, everyone. I am working on a novel in which the main character owns a dog named Buster. I have my heart set on this name as it is the name of my beloved dog who passed away while I was writing it. Problem is, subsequently, Disney came out with a cartoon dog character for a kid's TV show that is also named Buster.
I realize that Buster is a popular dog's name, due to seeing it listed in dog product magazines as ad for personalizing products. Question to the group is: Do I need to change the name since my dog is a real dog character and the other is a cartoon character?
Thanks for your time. I'll check back sooner this time. Have a great weekend, too.
PS. The dog in the book won't speak, except "woof"!
