Pet names for Pets
Is it just me, or does anybody else call their dog by "other" pet names when no one else is in ear shot..
We had a friend visit from Germany a few years back when Sophie was 3 months old. Well our friend took one look at her and nick named her what sounded like "Stink Mouse" in English. Well, it wasn't until a few years after that, that we found that what he was actually calling her in German meant "little, sleepy, lazy thing!" Well since Stink Mouse had already taken root, Stink Mouse then turned to "Mow-Mow"...then "Tink Mow". Next came Boo-Boo...Boo-boo bear....then back to just "Stinky"
Now my male Hav only has a few (maybe it's easier to nick name girls..)
Gabriel turned to Gaby-Waby...BIG BOY, and Gabe-ster
