Our friends Benny and Lily over at Two French Bulldogs recently answered a question in their Ba-Da-Bing column that got me thinking about nicknames. Every pet that has ever shared my life earned a nickname, or two, or twenty, somewhere along the way. I can't say I ever thought much about it before, but Lady, Lucky, Katie, and Lucy all have nicknames that get used at least as often - or more often - than their real names!
Little Miss Katie Sue
Miss Stubborn As The Day Is Long
LucBuc (pronounced "Loose Boose")
Sweet Little Bowtie
Arc-O-Kitty (this would have to be accompanied by a photo to make sense... it's a way she sleeps)
The Be-With Dog
Stinky Breath Dog
The Good Dog
Writing this post made me smile. :) Nicknames are fun, and handy for a variety of circumstances, from expressing endearment - "What a Sweet Little Bowtie Kitty you are," to frustration - "Come on Crazy Dog, let's go back inside." I bet I'll be updating these lists during the next day or two, as I use nicknames that have not occurred to me here sitting at the computer. Do your furry family members have nicknames?
