Before we got married- we were living in New Hampshire and found a dog in VT.  It was our sweet Maddy.  Her name was Madison b/c it is the town name where me and hubby gre up.  When moved back to Madison - and began to call her Maddy........We had "Madison" which turned into "Maddy" which we nicknamed "Lowkster".  No clue why or how Madison went to Lowkster.
We still still have "Buddy" and we call him "Dudley" or "dud" shot of "bud".  I think because he is a very lazy dog.

Our Golden was first named Thor but right after we brought him home, we knew he was our Buddy.Also called Spud Dog and Spudly Budly.
I have never had a dog before, nor did I think I ever would. I thought I was a cat person.After reading these boards, I have come to realize that Buddy is not the unique name I thought it was.

Bud left us today...........galloping to the bridge I hope.

Miss him so very much..........

To everyone -

I went back to the beginning of this post and read through all the nicknames.  There are as many names as there are furkids!  Thank you for sharing the names - they gave me smiles and laughter this morning!  So, with that said, here are the ones for my Cricket and Tiddy Tat:

Cricket:  Itty Baby, Nickie, Crik, Ticky Baby, Crook, Goofball (sometimes I wondered what she was thinking when she did things!), Momma's Girl, Goose, Doose...and many more!!! Here's another one - Monkey for all the times she swung from the blinds like a monkey on a mission!

Tiddy Tat:  Tidders, Tat, Snitums, Snitters, Snitty Tat, Lazy Bones, Sun Spot, Little Devil, Dingaling (at Christmas time she loved to jingle the ornaments on the tree)...

Goodness how I miss saying those names to my girls!!  Wonder what their nicknames were for me...maybe it's best I don't know! 

Have a great day!

Lets see.....

Rugrat was originally named Little Bit, so Rugrat was his nickname.

We had a cat named Callie, but she got called  (B) itchy witch.

We had a cat named Gizmo, but he got called pretty boy.

Greyson is sometimes called Heathen.

Jackson gets called baby heathen, or when he is all wound up we call him Jumpin Jack Flash.

Snuggles gets called Snug Bug, Tank (he has short legs and a very big round body) and Butterball because when he is laying upright, he looks like a Butterball turkey from the back.

I loved reading the nicknames.   I use to call Nina,  Nina Girl.   My husband stuck her with the nickname "Turkey Dog",  he use to do that when she was acting stubborn.  (have to admit I called her that at times)

I thought my cat was a little girl when I found her and named her Fiona.  Then the vet said nope its a boy, so Fiona turned into Frank.  I called him Franklin, Frankie , fuzzy face, fuzzy butt, baby boy and my little man.  When he was naughty I would call him Frankenstein and Mr. naughty.  My husbands favorite nickname for him was Frank the tank.

My dog's name's Whiskie.  Someone called him Mr. Whiskie.  Sometimes I call him Whiskeroonie, Wonder Whiskie or Wee wee, kind of like the way the Scots say it meaning, little one.  Maybe I've misused it, but those were some names I called him...wish he were here.

Recently Ollie got a new nick name.

Since my hubby is home on leave and brought with him my belated Christmas gift of a new digital camera he has focused on taking pictures of Ollie.



I used to call Ollie my Ollie Bug.

Well now I guess we have to change that to Shutter Bug.



Love and Peace,
