What is it about our four-legged family members that makes us want to call them silly names? Perhaps I can illustrate by showing you some pet photos of Maya and Pierson’s nicknames.

    For Cody: “Co-dependent” Code-a-licious”, “Codester”, “Jelly Belly”, “Cody Bodey” and a few others not fit to print! lol

    • Dawn Says:

      Bob Barker would be a perfect nickname for Pierson too! I love Code-a-licious’ nickname as well. 😀 And the ‘not fit for print’ part… some people might think I hate my dogs with all the names I call them, like booger, brat, monster, stinky pants, dirty dog, mutt, etc. LOL!

  5. Will and Eko Says:

    Haha “Brown noser” might be my favorite. It cracks me up how pets pick up nicknames just like people do.

    • Dawn Says:

      The difference with these types of nicknames for dogs vs people is that your dogs appreciate them while people tend to really not. 😉

  6. Oz the Terrier Says:

    Those are great nicknames! Fluffybutt…BOL. Ma sometimes calls me “Munchie” because I am her munchkin.

  7. barkandchatter Says:

    I love fluffybutt – my dog has one too! His name is Finn, but he’s often called Finnifoo. 🙂

  8. Clowie Says:
