Obviously dogs have names, but do they have nicknames? And do they respond to the nicknames?
Some of our dogs nicknames are below and they all respond(ed) to them:
Chevy (RIP): "Muppet", "Pretty girl"
Lennox (RIP): "Nennox" (sound same as name so duh) and this one sound mean but was meant with love "prick features" (I am not really sure how he got that particular nick name lol
Barney: "Bum bum" (thats his most popular nickname) and "Son" (yes I am a loser and call him that often). My OH calls him Bernie. The people at the SPCA we got him from call him "Barnacles" when he used to visit
Pippi: "Little Lady", "Pipster", "Lillle Miss", "ratbag" and the people at the vet call her "little dollop of evil" (I usually call her by her name or "little lady". My OH calls her "Fifi", not sure why he calls her that but that is their special name. My mums hubby calls her "Pippins" (she has really taken a liking to him and has cuddles with him all the time)
