Succession, the very good show about very bad people, is back this weekend, and we wanted to get in on the previewing fun, too. So we came up with the best Succession-related dog names.

The HBO show returns for its final season Sunday, the beginning of the end of our journey to see which child—if any—succeeds Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and helms the scandal-plagued Waystar Royco consortium.

This dark comedy has it all—repeated, viscous backstabbing, ill-advised texts, stunning vistas, grim-yet-fancy weddings—but its finest resource is the characters. They're each silly, attention-seeking, and obsessed with a father figure. Sure sounds like a Labrador or two we know. 

An aside: I would've loved to curate some names based on quotes from the show, but they are basically all profane and very weird. (Example: Almost everything Tom Wambsgans says and does.) Stick to naming your pet after the characters instead.
