Now, the title to this blog is about nicknames for dogs. No, we don't really have nicknames for our pups but I got thinking what nickname would be appropriate for each of them. I am sure several would fit each pup, so I may have a problem coming up with the best.
Let me start with the oldest and smartest, Muffin (or Muffy for short). I would have to give her the nickname of "Boss". Yep, she IS the boss of this household and keeps the other two in line and lets my wife and I know exactly what she wants. Like right now, she is telling us that it is time to eat. Yes, my wife cooks for our dogs. She usually cooks a lot at one time and stores what is left over in the refrigerator to be heated up for their dinner the next day.
The second in command is our male, Chang Le. He could be a show dog and struts around as proud as a peacock. I guess if he had a nickname, it would have to be "Pretty Boy".
And then there is the youngest, who was handed to my wife with her papers on a trip to Pennsylvania and was told that the dogs name was Gizmo (Gizzy). That made the third Shih Tzu. So, what should her nickname be? How about "The Kid", or as I sometimes call her, "Trouble". Yep, she is really full of energy and gets into everything. She is trouble waiting to happen, but she can be lots of fun. We also call her the "shredder", since she likes to chew up paper.
Back when we got the last pup, we had another older dog named Buttons. She was my "secretary" when I was working. Always beside me. I miss her and remembering her still brings a tear to my eye. It seems I have always had a dog or two. Had a Boxer, Bassett Hounds, Beagles, a Cocker Spaniel, and yes they were all very special to me. Let me hear about the pets that you have had and loved and that were extra special to you. Now, have a great day, you hear?
