What's your Pet's name, and what do you actually call them?


#1

From: https://xkcd.com/1535/
This might be the truest Comic XKCD has ever done. My Dog’s name is Luda

But we rarely call her Luda. Some other nicknames that have gone in and out of rotation:
Lou
Louey
Schmoo
Schmoogis
Boogis
Buddha
Bungus
Bagungus
Luccifus
Poochifus
The Loudest Houndest
The Bonus Creature
Chili Limon, the Left Handed Reliever from the Yankees
I’m forgetting at least a dozen more.

So, what’s your Pets name (feel free to post a pic for context!) and their name, and what do you actually call em?

Hey @M_o, do you know what kind of dog Luda is? She looks a lot like Jackal and Bonald and I have no idea what breed or breed mix they are.

#6

We think shes a Chihuahua / Italian Greyhound mix but really we have no idea


#7

We’re pretty sure Bonnie and Jack are chihuahua mixes too, but don’t really have any idea. That smile looks just like my dogs, tho! :slight_smile:


#8

We have three cats, one named after a bird, another named after a mythical creature, and the third named … for another reason.

We call all of them “cat.” It used to be more specific, i.e. “him” or “her” but then another “her” came along so they’re all just “cat.”


#9

This is Koopa my olde English bulldogge. As in King Koopa. Everyone thinks I’m saying Cooper when I tell them. Then I have to explain it’s fron Super Mario and they give me that, “Ohhhh” that really means, “that’s weird.” ¯_(ツ)_/¯

#14


This is Brunhilda, who I love, who is technically my roommate’s cat, who we all call Hildy
I will from time to time (all the time) refer to her as “Lil Hildy” or “A Dear Friend to All” or “My Friend Hildy” or “Cat!”

This is my family’s dog, Teddy, who I also love
I generally refer to him as Teddy or Lil Ted and I haven’t seen him in a few weeks but I’ll see him again on Friday!!


#15

Here’s Rambo! We didn’t name him, he’s technically the neighbours cat. But they had a baby and he decided he didn’t like having his tail pulled by a small demon. We already had a catflap in our conservatory, so he just kinda decided we were his new best friends.

He generally gets called either Bohdie, Ram-Bam (sometimes Ram-Bam-Bino), Moggie, Catly or just Cat.
