A recent comment thread on CrankyPants’ blog inspired this post. Our pets all have their proper names, the one we give at the vet’s office. But they also have tons of nicknames, too, to the point where I wonder if they get confused. Cisco’s full name is Don Francisco de Altamira, but he’s also frequently addressed as:

  • Little Buddy
  • Little Dude
  • Mr. Wigglebutt
  • Puppy
  • Puppity
  • Bueno Perrito
  • Kiddo
  • Bubbie

What nicknames do you call your pets?
