    Lately we've been referring to our dogs as our 'companions', and the term came from Geordie's cardiologist. Dr. B. sent us a letter about the new veterinary services at OSU, and said, "we are grateful that you chose us to care for your companion, Geordie."

    The term 'companion' fits so well for these sweet little spaniels!

    Just remembered something, though; when we went to get India out of ICU this weekend to take her home, I do remember holding her close and quietly telling her, "don't worry; mummy is going to take you home." I guess when something scary or life-threatening has happened, I do take on the role of their mom and protector, but during normal times I'm more like their friend!

    Hi

    I think "Companions" is a nice term ,but "Dad/Daddy" certainly and for Luke "Big Brother" also for me sometimes " Keeper Of The Royal Wallet " or even "Keeper" as its my job to Keep them in the manner they are accustomed to or Keep them supplied with the best food etc.
    But they are all certainly Dads little girls and I do miss them when I am at work.

    I agree "companions" is nice but I am "mum" to my two boys. Dylan's opthalmologist referred to me as "mom" when he was talking to Dylan which I really liked and I felt a bit easier about leaving Dylan in his care.

    Even though we refer to ourselves as Mom and Dad, it was for our little girl's benefit, if she wasn't around, it would have been our names, methinks. I really like the idea of us being their guardians, as we are guardians of our child as well... and companions, well that is truly what they are...

    unquestionably mum/mummy in our house & my girls are "grandpets" to our closest friends!Having no close family, the girls are my family & we often have a *surname*family cuddle.
    Jelly is allowed to be a proper dog too tho',roll in muck,chase after birds she will never catch,play rough with her dog friends etc etc Ruby shows no interest in any of it & is quite lady like-when Jels is rough larking with friends she expects to be picked up by me until theyve stopped, my point being i dont make them act like human babies!

    Bri i know exactly what you mean! Similarly, if im busy/tired whatever i'll get a look from the girls & i'll say-oh im sorry is service not up to scratch today,begging your pardon!
    Blessed by the love of a Cavalier!

    We didn't intend to refer to ourselves and "Mummy" and "Daddy" especially as we don't have children yet. BUT... it just kinda happened and then one day, my husband said to D'Artagnan "Where's Susan?" and D'Artagnan just looked at him and did the head tilt thing so DH went, "Where's Mummy?" and D'Artagnan twisted around until he saw me!

    If I call out "Come give Mumma a cuddle" Tagnan will run and put his head on my shoulder. He is just a snuggle bunny!

    DEFINATELY a mummy!!!

    They know Mummy if you ask them and even though we dont live together anymore they know Daddy aswell.
    They get excited if you mention either word as they do when they hear 'dinner' or 'walkies'

    I have never wanted Children and dont supose I ever will and as a present to myself I bit the bullet and got a tattoo on my back this year with both their names on.

    Its a bit red in the Picture as it was only half hour after it was completed!!

    People think Im absolutely barking mad- excuse the Pun, but to me they are more than dogs. Ruby especially is my soul mate and feel every part of her pain as she does mine. She has been my rock through a very very tough couple of years and I will never be able to repay her for what she does for me.

    However she is still a dog and I treat her as one- she is allowed to do anything a dog should do- I dont dress her up or buy her diamond collars, she eats out of a stainless steel bowl and no it doesnt have her name on LOL!!
