I call my dog "puppy" as you can't go wrong with that. Simplicity is the key to life, sometimes.

No dogs, but I have a hundred names for my four cats. Scary thing is - they answer to all of them! (even if it's "Oy, cat")

08-10-2006, 06:38 PM
Oh I love giving my dog new names and making up little songs to go with them.

In no particular order:

Millie(her real name)
Millie Pants
Millie Schmillie
Millie Monster
Pretty Princess
Daddy's Little Princess
Princess Millie
Puppy Wuppy Schmuppy
Fluffy Bum
Thief-a-spaniel(she's a springer spaniel)
Queen of All She Surveys
Huggle Wumpkins.

Yes, my husband and I are very lame.

Okay, I admit it. My two current cats (brothers) are Rumor and Secret.


The Cabana Boys
The Flipster
Dingle-berry dipwad.

It's a wonder they put up with me.

I am a little strange. . . . sometimes I don't actually have names for my dog, since we communicate telepathicly, names become a little redundant. Though, I do often call her hun or dear, just like every other endearing female in my life. Though, I do sometimes call her Honey or Bunches (though rarely Honey Bunches) because, well, she is just a Honey Bunches of Oats. . . .

okay, I'm pathetic.

I used to have a dog and we called it Pat (as in Pat the dog).

08-10-2006, 08:06 PM
We have one cat (and feed numerous other neighborhood ones). I call them all the same name: Damkat

08-10-2006, 10:15 PM
My dog's name is Dashiell but I have been known to refer to him as the following...

Jason Bourne
Pirhana when he was younger but not so much anymore
Cornbeef Kinish

My dog is a cat. He chases squirrels. He chases bikes. He chases rabbits. He likes to ride in the car.(We don't let the window down, though) He chases people.

His name is Clyde James, although I call him 'Stoopid Dawg' half the time.

Jay - I have a cat who thinks he's a dog (he walks to heel and howls at strangers) - d'you think they got mixed up somewhere?

All my animals have nicknames, but the ones that stick out belong to Chloe:

AKA: The Puma
Psycho Kitty
Miss Sheds-a-lot

I think most pet lovers are like this.:tongue

It's interesting to see all the odd names people have for their pets.

I had a dog whose name was Kori. I called her Kori ander dander flander flinder flakes.

My cats have additional names, too.

Elmer Schmelmer or Mommy's Good Boy
Frankie Blue Eyes or Frankers
Aja is often called Sweet Pea or Pudge-wah
Cally Wally or Little Dipper
Molly Lolly

Guess I like rhymes. :)

08-11-2006, 08:32 AM
Do you all sing-song when you call their silly names, too? :ROFL:

08-11-2006, 11:06 AM
Oh, all right I'll put them up again.

I have a cat named Pumpkin at least that's what her first shots record says, but she lost that name a long time ago. We lived under a flight path and when the planes would go over her eyes would go wide and her ears would go back. I said she looks like a monkey face, so I started calling her Monkeyface.


Fat Sausage
My Cat

We have a game we play when she throws herself on the floor and shows me her belly.

I say: Who's pretty--my kitty. Who's fat--my cat. Then I ask her if she wants her nip so she can get loaded. She pops up and I have to get up and get it for her.

The look on her face--priceless

That sounds so cute.

The only game I can play with stubborn Kibby is what I like to call the "milk splash". Everytime I open the fridge, he races from wherever he is into the kitchen. Then, he whines and rubs against legs and trips people until someone dumps milk onto the floor.

Our cat doesn't have to beg for his catnip. I get bored and throw his the entire baggie (fresh catnip, too) and he goes nuts. It hilarious. Last time we gave him the catnip, we came home and found him on top of the ceiling fan's propellor.

I love that ad for Nyquil, where the woman sneezes, you see the startled cat jump and the last shot is the cat on the fan blades! Makes me howl every time! I'm so easily amused! :ROFL:

Mr. Lucky also answers to:

Lucky Ducky
Mama's little pumpkin flower
Jungle Kitty

I once had a friend that called his cat: Catbox and when he wanted the cat in the house to go to bed, he'd walk out the back door and yell: "Catbox!" and the cat would come.

Notice that this thread started out for dogs and now it's all about cats?

Cause Dogs droole!

08-12-2006, 05:28 AM
Cause Dogs droole! 0.0 Take it back! lol

Dogs are awesome, they just don't like the spotlight as much as cats do. Kibby gets more attention than anyone or anything else in the house, because he knows how to be a star. :D

Well, I'll start out with my mom's dog. Her name is Shelby. aka Psycho Puppy and, according to my dad That Damn Dog (although he loves her to death, just won't admit it.) Psycho Puppy comes from a time early on in Shelby's life when she-- for absolutely no reason at all-- would just start running like crazy from the kitchen to the living room, growling and barking.

Then again, this was also the dog that when she was around 3 months old or so came into the living room, lay down on the carpet, turned her head to look right at me, lifted her butt (just her butt, not her whole body), and proceeded to pee on the carpet.

My one cat I call Miss Priss (real name, Hannah) because she will lay down and get all settled then cross her front paws and look all lady-like. You can uncross them, she'll glare at you, then cross them back again.
