Added DiffLines:

* The main protagonist in ''ComicStrip/FootrotFlats'' is a dog called [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The Dog]]; he has a real name, but it's never revealed, because the Dog [[BerserkButton hates the name and attacks anyone who tries to say it.]] Oddly enough, the AntiVillain Horse is... a cat.
* Often lampshaded in ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine''. The four main characters are a rat, pig, zebra and goat named "Rat", "Pig", "Zebra" and "Goat". At one point, "Goat" is revealed to be a [[StageNames stage name]] -- his real name is Paris.
* Invoked in a ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip where Lyman says that he grew up with four cats all named Cat. When Jon asked him why, Lyman said there was no point in giving a name to [[CatsAreMean an animal that won't come when you call it]].
** This trope applied to Odie in [[DubNameChange an early Norwegian translation]] (it seemed to be a running theme - Jon had no name either). Later translations settled on a more personalized name.
* ComicStrip/HiAndLois have a dog named Dawg.
* ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus features a cat named Kittycat.
