View Full Version : What do you call your dog most of the time.........

12th January 2007, 01:06 PM
Merlin is most known to me and family as:
Mergits, Merly Whirls and Mr Tops - and he comes to all of them!

Oakley is generally called Okey Pokey or Fat boy - he doesn't come to fat boy but then again would you? :badgrin: :lol: :badgrin: :lol: :badgrin:

Thats how we chose the names for both of our boys based on the fact that you could make it rrhyme with something. The name Fat boy came about because Oakley is a mini Augustus Gloop! :lol:

Edited to add:

The two together are commonly known as the rat bags!

Abigal- Abby, Wabbygail, Wabby, Wabs,

13th January 2007, 02:45 AM
8) We are foolish about our critters, aren't we? And all in the same boat.

The breeder wanted to register the litter Wallis is from with all "W" names - I realize that I didn't have to actually call her that but it's a bit uncommon to name a female Wallis so I did. She's often called WallisWallis (in a sing song) or Wallis Ann.

Tibby came from the vet clinic with her little papers and where the line said "Name" someone had written "TBA". Which turned quickly from TB to Tibby or TibbyToe.

I had to name Sasha (my shihtzu) without seeing her first; my daughter picked her out for me, I mailed a check, then she lived with Erin until I could get to KY. She's Sashroon, Sashy-Washy or some of the names that shihtzus get called because of what they are!

John Robert is sometimes reversed to Robert John, and they call him JR at the vet clinic.

Moji (the Senegal parrot) started out as Mojo but it changed somehow.

Henry and Pip don't have nicknames - aren't they pitiful?

I'm forever singing to my group, making rhymes with their names depending on who I'm talking to. Henry likes to yell "Hello!" so I get started singing The Beatles "Hello, Hello" to him.

I nicknamed my husband Bubba shortly after I got him, call Erin "rin (or Blossom or Joyce) most of the time, g'daughter Zoe (pronounced Zoey) is shortened to Zo. The other g'daughter is Avery and I fussed because my daughter had found a name I couldn't find a nickname for!

I don't think I want to know what they call me!

13th January 2007, 11:47 AM
I don't really have too many pet names for our dogs. A few are Pix for Pixxie, Coop for Cooper, and Red Dog for any of our rubbies.

When Cooper was small, he had this annoying habit of going outside and pooping (we knew he did, we would watch him), then come inside and within 5 minutes he would poop again. We eventually learned to leave him out a while after the first poop. For a long time we called him "Two Poop Coop".

molly+charlies mum
13th January 2007, 01:53 PM
i call molly,molly moo and charlie,charlie boy or char char they both come to them :D

13th January 2007, 08:17 PM
Bruce - I love "Two Poop Coop" - that's priceless!

When Tibby goes out to poop we've decided she's like a combination lock. Turn "x" number of times to the left (as many as 15), "x" number to the right, "x" number back to the left then she's okay to go.

My Wesley
13th January 2007, 09:16 PM
I remember now! I posted earlier that I couldn't think of what my DH calls him. And he just said it earlier.

Dippy Doo!

14th January 2007, 04:41 AM
mine are

Monty - monty, Mr Evil, Mozz, Mozza, Cheekster, Monty-babe, monster

Milo - milo, milezimus, milezy, milopolous, milez, Mr Licky

14th January 2007, 10:08 AM
I don't really have too many pet names for our dogs.

Same here Bruce....it's enough to remember the four names already and then to get them with right dog!!! :?

If we went into "fun" names as well we would be there all day! :lol:

Also many years of obedience work has "taught me" to keep it plain and simple, I guess it's hard to change a habit of a lifetime. :sl*p:

Alison, Wilts, U.K.

14th January 2007, 04:58 PM
What about whitney woo woos then? And Crazy Daisy???? :lol:

In our house, Maxx is Maxxymoos or Moos & Charlie is Charlie Warley Woos. They also get called Pumpkin, Sweetpea and Mamma's baby or Mamma's boy. If I want both of them I just say 'Babies' and they both come running :lol:

Funny thing earlier. I was in the kitchen with my youngest and I was teasing him saying 'Oooh you're Mamma's boy and Mamma loves yooooou'. Suddenly, both furbabies came from nowhere and just stood glaring at me as if to say 'No mamma, we're your boys, not him ' :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hubby just calls them both 'Bad dog' (he is joking) but they still adore him :roll:

My eldest calls Charlie 'stinky' because he gets very smelly with his allergies & Maxx is 'Maffew' - this is because he gets tiny little matts in his ears most days and Maffew is how my great nephew Matthew used to say his name when he was a toddler :roll:

14th January 2007, 07:09 PM
Toby - Tobes, Baby, Toblerone, Bits, Sweetie, Pooch, Poochie, Posh Poochie
Taffy - TaffTaff, The Taffster, Poochie, Raff, Raffy Roo Roo's
Archie - Arch, Archie Parchie, Arf-arf, Stinky Pooch.
The last one is only used when he has been rolling in horses muck and gets brought straight into the office without a wash!! :yuk: :yuk:

15th January 2007, 01:04 AM
Fergus is - Fergie, The Ferg, Fergie Werg, Fegie Derg, Fergulicious, Little man

Cooper is - Coop, Coopy,Coops, Cooper Doop, Super Dooper Cooper Man, Cooperiddy, Little man

Oh and they are our 2 little rappers ; Coop - Diddy and Fergy Cent

And they are both called any combinations of gorgeous, beautiful etc etc

Our 2 year old nephew who's just learning to talk calls Cooper - "Pooper" - it's so cute. He can't say Fergus yet so Fergus is just called "Doggie"

15th January 2007, 01:14 AM
Shelby is pumpkin doodle pumpkin pie. Jake is .... well, I don't think I can put the words in a public forum :lol: No, just kidding, well sometimes not....when he's not being a pain in the patootie (stop tapping my leg Jake, I'm typing!) he's Jakey Bubba Roo!

that's funny, i call them pumpkin doodle, pumpkin pie too .. ! :lol: well i call them piki wiki, ( okay, i dont even know where this come from or why.. :P ) it's so funny how they know this is their "pack" name, both of them will come! :roll: but if i call cherrise, baby girl.. or hope, hopey, only 1 will of them will come.. sometimes call them beenie weenie.. munchkin. gosh the list goes on and on, and the weirdest thing is they know that is their name!

15th January 2007, 07:13 AM
We have about a hundred different names for Indy but one of my favorites is Poo Poo Lips. My little one has a brown freckle by her lip so I have always (with utter affection) teasingly called her that and my 17 year old niece has given her approval as well! :)

15th January 2007, 07:18 AM
and another front runner is "Lippy". She has a thing she does where she will tuck her lip up (on either side) and it looks like she is getting a little attitude with you or something. My family has seen this and absolutely died laughing it's so cute. So we have called her that. Also, since her name is Indiana we have a tendency to call her anything ending in "ana" ie: Poopieana, Lippyana, etc.

15th January 2007, 02:28 PM
My Nephew who is one calls Bailey..... Lailey, sit or just dog ! Its quiet funny when Bailey is in the garden and Sam is calling sit.

15th January 2007, 02:33 PM

I call Lia "Gordi" (that is a short name for "gordita", that means "fatty")
Although she is not fat.

Princess Annabel
17th February 2007, 07:36 PM
This thread is soooo funny!!! :lol:

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has a whole bunch of names for their dog.

Ok, here goes (bear in mind we got her when I was 12 so alot of these were from back then)

Annabel (pet name), Annie, Bella, Princess Ann, Mrs. Barker, Vivaine (from her pedigree name), Annaviv, Dogga (like the toy dog in the book "Dogger" by Shirley Hughes), Belladogga, Beautybel, Annasmell (ha ha ha), Nozzle-face (I used to call dogs muzzles "nozzles" when I was a kid), Annjana, Nozjana, Little girl dog.

I'm sure there are loads more, my mum used to always tell me to stop calling her all sorts of names or else she will be confused, but as long as I said it in the same tone of voice she always knew I was talking to her.


Friday's Mommy
17th February 2007, 10:36 PM
We call Friday....Stinky or Stinky Doo. She's such a little stinker and so mischievous. It's like having a little 2 years old who's always looking to see what she can get into.

What's weird is she answers to both ..Friday and Stinky.
