GOOFY NICKNAMES FOR DOGS
Just a lazy Sunday morning, the way Sunday mornings were meant to be. At least until the race or a football game comes on T.V. Anyway, we were just hanging out in the back yard talking about the silly little nicknames that Mom sometimes will use when she talks to us. One of her favorites names to call us is Pooch Wooch. 'Are you hungry, Pooch Wooch?' 'Want a biscuit, Pooch Wooch?' and so on. It's a little embarrassing when our neighbor Duke is over to visit. Another name she calls us is 'Freakoid Puppies'. That one's not too bad, we'll take it over Pooch Wooch. Or she just numbers us, Scuba is Dog Number One, Keiko is Dog Number Two, Norman is Dog Number Three and Toby is Dog Number Four. Just a little impersonal, Mom. Then there are the days when she tries to make our names rhyme with something, anything, whether it makes sense or not. Norman always comes out ahead with that because he's got the 'Stormin Norman' label. That's a good one. But 'Scuba Puba?' OH MY DOG! Please stop. How about 'Tober Topper' for Toby? No self respecting canine is gonna answer to that one. Or what about 'Baby Cakes' for Keiko? Holy Puppy Poop! No wonder she's a little insecure. So we want to know from the rest of the pups out there, do you have to endure the Goofy Name Game as we do or is your human normal?
