QotD: Pet Names May 28, 2008

What are the goofy nicknames you have for your pet? Bonus points for sharing a picture of him/her.
Submitted by Papi Chulo.

Well, first we have Pumpy. Thats his real name, not his nickname. He had a few nicknames, all our animals do. It's no wonder they never come when we call them. They have no idea who they are.

Anyway for a while Pumpy was Tuan. You pronounce it Twuan. Thats was the name of our doctor and there was a small child visiting us once and there was confusion and he thought the cat was Tuan. So it sounded funny so thats what we called him. Oh look, there's Tuan.


And here he is with Tossy. Who became known as Mr John Hossy. But you have to say it as if you're a presenter on a game show and you're calling him down as a contestant. With a drawn out John.


And here he is again with Big Man. Not camera shy was he. Big Man was Little Man but he grew and we had to change his name. But his other name was Costas. As in Costas Two Bucks.


And here we have my dog Graeme. She was without a doubt the best dog around. I had her for 17 years before Betty. She used to like to wear a green scarf. And she knew she looked damn fine in it as well. She was also known as Kenny. Which then became Ken Kennerson.

    What a great post. I so love pets. My precious Annie will be 12 this month. Scary, but she was just at the vet and things look great.

  2. cat Says:

    I'm sure she still has a few years left in her. You care for her so well. It's so heartbreaking when they go.

    A wonderful crowd of furkids! Graeme – fantastic ears of doom! Oh those katz…

  4. Red Pen Says:

    They're all so darn cute.

  5. cat Says:

    she never really grew into those ears either – therefore another name she had was Bilby (don't know it you have bilbys)

  6. Connie Says:

    Cat, do you know that "Tuan" in Indonesian means "Sir/Mister/Boss"? 🙂

  7. cat Says:

    ha – well that little cat sure thought he was the boss. The real Tuan (doctor Tuan) is from Vietnam I think.

  8. Waterbaby Says:

    cool cat that graeme.

  9. cat Says:

    She set a high standard for those that follow her. Just one of those good dogs.

    wonderful names for clearly wonderful critters!
    I had a cat briefly who loved baskets. I called him Sam. My roommate adopted him when I moved (he didn't get along with my other cat), and she renamed him Schmool. Everytime I see a picture of a cat in a basket I fondly remember Schmool. (It's a Hebrew name that I have probably misspelt).

    lol – well I'm sure no one will take you to task over the spelling. We had a cat who liked to get in boxes them rip them into a million pieces
