Do they say c'mere c'mere and hey hey dog? :D


Well I didn't know this guy that well and it was a long time ago,
but as I remember both dogs definitely responded to their
names when spoken. The guy seemed to get a kick
out of people's reactions to the names. As I remember he
just said the name once. :)

I think the best name for a dog is Idiot - only imagine all those people in the street who turn round having heard you shouting your dog's name. :lol:

All animals do. It's best to have an "ee" sound on the end too.

What are your favorite pets' names? I got the idea for this when I was reading the newbie thread just now, and a girl said she had a kitten named Smudge, which I thought was so cute.

I have a cat named "Snacky" who eats almost anything, and one named Poirot.

I also used to have twin goats; one was named "Target" because she had kind of a target pattern on her side, and her sister was named "Dart". :wink:


oh,oh! I has a pair of goats, too! Nubians black and white, I named the buck "Hal. A. Lueia" and the doe "Glory Bea".

and I once had a cat that was 42 inches from paw to tail tip when streched out and horizontally striped I called "Slinky" . . .

Great names. My goats were Nubian/Saanen crossbreed, I think. They had horns, so I guess they were more Nubian. Did you ever milk your doe?

my cats- damien and loki
my hedgepig - odin

the cats' names are very fitting, in my opinion...
odin's name just kinda stuck after i grew accustomed to nicknaming him that ~___^;;.

Nubians have the long ears, they are very distinctive that way. I have milked many does, but as much as I loved my buck, Hal, they smell like a billy goat! It gets into everything, bedding, walls of the dairy, feed, and yes, doe's milk.

Years later, I had only does, Blanchette and Bonham-Carter, (Blanchy and Boney) and made the best cheeses and yogurts. . .not a whiff of billygoat, it was fabulous! ah, goodtimes,good times. . .

I had some Alaskan Malamutes and I called them Quuawnee and Lash but I think the best name for that breed would be Snowstorm. One because they a sled dogs that work in conditions where there are plenty of snowstorms and blizzards etc.

Another reason is even in places where it doesn't snow you would still get your snowstorm when they shed their undercoat and the whole backyard looks like a snowstorm hit it.

My favorite name is Rumpamuffin - he's my cuddle-kitty.
I also have a Crusader Kitabit, Butters, Mr. M, Zophie, & Sevena - all kitties.

We named our dogs Anna and Daisy, and our cats Molly and Polly (like the twins in the BBC kids' programme Pigeon Street: "Molly with an M and Polly with a P!").

We're down to just Molly now, and she's 18 and very doddery :(
