    Default Big V Little and Childrens Names for Dogs

    My daughter wants to know why the little dogs are so angry especially to the big dogs and why do some of the big dogs roll over when the little dogs get angry. (foxy type breeds especially.

    Oh and they want another dog 4yo wants a giant poodle (old english sheep dog!)
    mr 2 wants the spotty bum dog (dalmation)

    Oh this could be a funny new thread what do our children or us as children call dogs

    I have as much as possible tried to call dogs by their proper names (we have a maltesexpoodle) now my daughter goes around saying that dogs part poodle I can tell coz I have one

    Should probably put this in some other area but oh well move it if you see fit Morgan (ps there is a greyhound at the RSPCA in adelaide if any lovers can help)

    LOL kids are so funny hey!

    I am no expert but my guess is that SOME little dogs might develop a 'Inferiority Complex' becuase they are smaller and get nervous a lot more so can be aggressive more regularly.

    My 1.5 yr old calls dogs.. all dogs, Woff Woffs LOL

    Even funnier my little brother (when he was her age) used to call ants 'little woff-woffs' hahaha

    Miss 8 saw a little dog trying to hump Candy at the offleash area...she laughed and said the little dog was 'hugging Candy'..hehe

    Master 2 calls Falcon...'Calcon' and he calls Candy...'Cane' (I call her Candy cane!).

    Hahahahaha....Children are incredible and the best fun!! I love the antics and when they say these things they have those big eyes and are very "serious'

    Daniel named one of our fosters "Buzz Lightyear" it was the best name as Buzz was a little pocket rocket. A black poodle x and full of beans and sweet mischief...

    Most of Daniels names are after characters in his favourite movies he always seems to hit the spot! and is very excited when newbies arrive here. He spends most of his time shreeking with laughter as he has a wicked sense of humour and adores any mischeif!!

    Well, My first Dog ( who was actually a stray I adopted without telling my parents ) was given a most original name...

    From memory, he was my pet for about 4 years..



    my excuse for this is I was only 6 at the time....




    drum roll please !!




    And the name was !!!!!!




    are we ready for this ?




    Doggie !

    At dog obedience there was a black and white great dane. I knew it was friendly so after training took her up to say hello. The lady said she could pet him and she did and then we went home.
    I told Brooke (3) to tell Grandma what she patted and she said "Gramma there was a cow' lol TBH it did look a bit that way. (found a google image of something similar- http://www.pups4sale.com.au/great_dane_pups_03a.jpg)


    Another thing I find funny is every morning when my brother drops of Buddy they are so excited to see him. All you here is " Buddys here!' Its funny because they now pay no attention to my brother and before buddy it was "Glenn's Here!'

    Then every afternoon when he picks him up they say "look Glenn theres your Buddy' Its obviously funnier IRL..lol

    Yes there are a lot of small dogs with what I call 'little dog syndrome'. I see it all the time with ponies.... they make up for their size with attitude!!

    Oh kids are the best!!

    I love the hugs from miss 8 and Sharoo's Miss 3 who really huged a cow

    Natty I love those names!!! hehehe I think we have some movie buff's!!

    Daniel adores the chooks too, their names change every week

    When Daniel was three or so we were spectating at Ironman (my Husband is a triathlete) In between loops we went to get some morning tea at a coffee shop and a lady with a stunning GSD was there. We asked her if it was ok/safe to pat him....so Daniel patted and chatted with him for a little while and then shouted "MUM....he is a boy dog, he has a HUUUUUGE PEEEEENIS!!!!"

    He certainly entertained everybody! Oh dear
