My friend had a dog named Stain.

Then he got a dog and named it Dammit, As in "Get off the couch, Dammit".

People names crack me up.

My current dog's name is Kevin. When we get another one we are going to name it Richard or Stephanie.

that may be funny only to me...

I had a friend who named their dog...Comehere..."Come here...Comehere".

I personally had a dog named Sobaka (dog in Russian) and a two cats, Keetza and Misha (cat and mouse in Russian).

It doesn't matter what you name a cat. They won't come when you call them.

See, we are all having a good time here, and someone has to ruin it.

Our first dog was Ajax, only because we brought him home in an Ajax Cleanser box. Now we have Baily .

My dogs' full name is Rufus Thibidoux Jones. We only use the full name when he's in trouble. Which is often.

Captain Smackbelly is an excellent name!

My dog is Bofus (King Bofus on his papers). He's a great pooch!

Two cats - Screech (named for a good reason) and Sissy.

Our Shepherd/Rott was Foober (deceased a year ago)

When I was a kid we had a dog named Pig.

I love people names for animals, too. My dog's name is Roxie, cat is Foster. My previous, much lamented dog's name was Phoebe. My favorite is a friend of mine who has a giant dog (breed unknown) named Earl.

We had a dog that we named "Bart" because it sounded like a real troublemaker's name. This was around 1980, and he really was. Some time later, some artist dude made a cartoon and stole our idea. I guess it's really famous in some parts of the world.

Nikola Tesla-Tess
Charles Babbage (father of the modern computer)-Babs

Cathy: We need to know -- Did your latest pet come to you in a case of Irish whiskey?

I haven't been allowed to name any pets since I was 5 and named a parakeet "Little Flying Peep Peep Peep III". All our pets were owned (er, owners) and named prior to them moving into our happy home. So "Cleo" (dog) and "Sugar" and "Biscuit" (cats) were not our doing.

My dog "Molly" came from the Shelter and so was prenamed.
She wouldn't even turn her head to that name!!!!
I tried Dolly, Holly, Golly,
One day - in desperation I tried HONEY and Sweetie....
and she's been mine ever since!!!!

Yeah, most pets that come from shelters are assigned a name upon arrival at the shelter. Clyde was Marley, Pepper was Glory, Buddy was Wrinkles, and poor Bucket. He was a rescue from some weird mutt farm so he hadn't yet been assigned a name. He looks like an Ewok but I wasn't having any Star Wars named pets.

Our cats: Gray Kitty, Girl Kitty, Black cat. Or something like that.

My cats were Cleopatra- very elegant right up to the end aged 24!, India, China and Paris- very cosmopolitan, Clement Attlee- a very political cat and Billy the Bad- star of many schoolkids stories when my ex. was teaching in junior school.

I've had dogs named Dixie, Ginger, Heidiann, Fritz, Shep, and I now have Graciella and Samijo and Chance. Most of my dogs have been purebred German shepherd or part shepherd. Chance looks a little like a little Lassie, but someone said they thought he was part Australian shepherd. His name is appropriate since he was saved from the shelter and is getting a second chance. He is so frightened and timid, so if anyone has any hints other than patience and love to help him overcome that, please send me a PM.

I've almost always had cats, too many to remember their names. Right now I have two I'm keeping for my granddaughter -- like permanently I think -- Sky and Frances. They fight like cats and dogs -- pardon the pun.

I never let my kids pick pet names because I know we'd wind up with a cat named "Mr. Whiskers", and I'd have to throw myself off a bridge...

I named one of my cats D.O.G (pronounced dee oh gee). Ben wanted to name one of the cats Adolph (he had a mustache) or Booger.....couldn't handle either one of those. None of them are cleverly named at the moment. I DO have one named Whiskers thank you very much because her whiskers are extremely long. My cats do come when they are called.

(Cathy: We need to know -- Did your latest pet come to you in a case of Irish whiskey?)I do like Bailey's Irish Whiskey, But I just liked the name. Baily came from the same breeder (all Maltesses)so I think he is related to Ajax.

Long ago I had a cat named TIGER.
He was about 6 months old when we started to shoo
him out of the door at night and tell him to
"Have a good time"
Not much later, he dropped three kittens....
And then he was TIGERLILY!!!!

I got my first pet at five, a parakeet that I named Pretty Boy and a goldfish Goldie Mae.
My first dog a german shepherd Timber, mixed breed Cocoa, a Cockapoo Zack, and a cat my daughters named Morris (looked like the Morris from the commercials). My current dog on her papers is "Princess Sassy Mae Star" (the princess and star were my youngest granddaughters idea)I call her Sassy Mae.(My beloved grandmothers name was Mae)

My parents had a big Black Lab named Satan. I always thought that was kind of dubious, going to the back door and calling Satan to come in. It might explain a lot about my family though.

Sorry Pat, only just read your post about shy dog.....
If it's because your dog recently came from the shelter
then he might grow out of the timidity....because they do
have abandonment issues when they've been in the shelter.

The other thing I as thinking was that the "mix" could
be Shep/SHELTIE (if he looks at all like a small Collie)
Shelties are ONE person dogs, and what looks like timidity
can actually be just limited attachment until he gains
full confidence in you.
I used to have a "timid" Sheltie/Shepherd who took on a horse
one day, because it snorted at her to go away....

My son's dog is named Root Beer - he named him that because his coloring makes him look like a root beer float - his eyes are aquamarine blue and he has very little hearing - but he is a really cool dog - VERY loyal to my son - someone shot him through the leg the other day (we live in the country) - fortunately he is going to be okay - but I can't guarantee that for the person if I find them.

My daughter's dog is named Bilbo - also a very cool dog - she and Root Beer are brother and sister - I would guess I don't need to explain her name in this bunch like I do to most

Thanks for the tip Rowlanda. I've wondered if he has been abused but maybe it's just fright from being abandoned by a former owner, or a combination of both.

Growing up, I had a mean little dapple gray pony named Peter Pan. When my husband was growing up, they had a horse named Teeny Bopper. Sometimes when we feel like arguing but can't find anything else to about each other to rake over the coals, we ridicule each other over who had the dumbest horse name.

He did.

The pet names for my four cats are Jinks, Jazzy, Julie and Jemma - yeah, I know, I've got a bit stuck on the Js at the moment! - but their full pedigree names and titles are rather longer!

In reverse order (of length), Jemma is "Kagoza Glamour Puss" - she's too young to have titles yet - and Jinks is "Grand International Champion Davrica Jaxom" (and no, I had no hand in the J name choice there!)

Then Julie is "TICA Grand Champion and FIFe International Champion Mabalakat Jools" (I didn't choose the J name but the breeder knew I tended to use them when she named her!) and the longest of all - ready for this?!! LOL!

Jazzy is "TICA Double Grand Champion Alter and FIFe International Premier Rumtumtugger Dairmuid Goon"!

Now you know why they get given much shorter pet names - can you imagine trying to call one of them with that lot?!

All of my dogs have had boring names like: Buck, Smokey, George, Jock, etc.

The cats had slightly more interesting names like: Bugs, Wowzer and Flitterbick, etc.

The bird own the odd names with ones like:
Gandalf --- African Gray Parrot
Steam shovel --- A parakeet who could empty a seed or gravel dish all over in seconds
Banana Bird --- A yellow parakeet with light green splotches
Tin Foil --- parakeet with a grating chirp
Red Eye --- an albino parakeet

I only have cats in my life right now but I do like dogs. I named all my cats because the family thought I picked the best names. I have Cleopatra but shorten it to Cleo, Fred, Bat, Hershey, Romeo, Cierra and Shasta.

I had a Poodle x Terrier dog named "Solo" coz he was the only Poodlier I ever knew.

My Calico cat was called "Pawnee" coz she looked like a li'l Indian pony.
She was "Miss-Madam Prudence Matilda Pawnee Puss" to her devotees, of which there were many!
Pawnee's mother was "Geronimo" coz she was >A Patchy< cat......! Yup, another Calico.

years ago my kids and i found a fluffy little fur ball on the road near a dumpster...(we will not mention what i think should be done to people who abandon animals like that)

my daughter wanted to call him 'trembles' because he shook so much in her lap... my son wanted to call him 'lucky' because the pup was lucky that we found him.. and they began arguing about it.. i settled the dispute by naming him 'L.T.' (lucky-trembles)

currently, mightydog and i have a mini long haired dachshund named 'shotzy'.. sometimes we call him 'shotzy von little dog'

Heidi - you can't beat what our then 3-yr old grandson called "The Classical Cat" - Tuffy! Only Tuffy isn't - he's a wus so we called him Tuffus Wuffus. He looks like he eats his dead - he weighs nearly 24 lbs. We give our cats really solid names like Bootsie, Whiskers.

My brown dog is named Blue, and the black dog is Blackie, so together I call them my BRUISERS!

Our boa constrictor is named Alice (after Alice Cooper, who lives near the pet store where the snake was purchased).

My favorite pet name was a friend's cat named The Breeze.

I have two pooches (click on my name to see them in all their muttliness).

Roscoe (the larger dog) is named after Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle because when I got him at the pound, the kennel warden told me he was never going to leave the kennel. Apparently he was a biter. I wrestled with Roscoe for a while in the yard. When they brought him out, I laid down on the ground until he had no choice but to see if I was dead. He seemed genuinly concerned! I thought he was great, so I took him home and he hasn't left my side since. That dog has a huge soul.

So, since he was accused of something that he didn't do that could have kept him in jail for a long time, I named him after Arbuckle. "Fatty" would have been too cruel.

I got the smaller dog at a pound in Boston and although I swore I would never get a Chihuahua, I thought she was the cutest thing I had ever seen. She's also part Jack Russell.

Well, she had been owned by another family and owing to the Chihuahua/Mexican influence in her blood, they had named her Chicano. I asked that she be brought into the waiting room for me to check out.

While I was waiting, a Latino family came into the kennel. When they brought the dog out, I was too embarrassed to scream "Here Chicano!!" So I had to improvise.

For years now, when I'm out with my dog and people ask her name, they immediately say things like "Oh, is that where you're from?" Of course, her name is now Chicago, a place I've only been to once for an afternoon.
