Let's play... "Name that Pet"! OK, silly name but let's share the names of some of the pets you've had. If you want you can explain why you gave your pet his/her name. Let's go~~
You must remember that I have had a large number of decades to accumulate and enjoy my pets so if the list seems long do take that into consideration.
Currently we have Cedar, our Golden Retriever puppy. I chose the name because we have wooded acreage and the Cedar trees are my favorite. I chose the name long before we found her and the strange thing is the breeder we bought her from lives by the Cedar River.
Other names for dogs: Trucker, Trina (nickname for her long show name), Moose, Odie, Chomps, Mo~Heir <I didn't name that one
> Buppy, Peanuts and all of these died of old age. I know I left someone out. Oh, like a delinquent poodle my aunt gave me named 'Pretty Boy'. I knew something was wrong and it was. He lacked quite a few brain cells....lol
Some of the cats over time: Bob (lol..I always loved that name for a cat...Bob-Cat), Einstein (white tufts of hair sticking out of her ears), Tug, Tigger, Mango, Snowball, Ditz (she really was not all there. was a stray long hair tortie that someone dumped so I rehabbed her), there's one I'm trying to hard to remember..and if I do I'll add it later on.
Horse, Palomino - Candy
Sheep - Cashew and Oreo. When Oreo was pregnant with twins we called her Oreo with Double Stuff.
Didn't name all of the chickens, peacocks, etc and when I was a kid dad wasn't in favor of naming the cows. Didn't want us to get attached.
Now it's your turn! What are the names of some of your pets?
