All our pets have names, obviously. But we also like to play with their names and so each animal actually has many. Are we alone in this?
Here are some:
Daisy: “Daisy Chain”, “Daisy Chain Dog”, “Daisy C. Dog” and, when she’s in trouble, “Daisy Chain Dog Schoenwald-Blayse!”
Goldie: “The Golden Child”, “Goldie Dog” and “Golden Girl”
(Both the dogs are also called “The Poopies” and “The Shmuppies”.)
Jasmine: “Miss Jasmine”, “Jazzy Cat” and “Jasmine Cat”
Bucket: “Bucket of (insert noun here, e.g. Trouble)”, “The Shmitten”
Traveller: “Trav” and “The Travelling Man”
Leila: “Princess Leila”, “Leila Pony” and “Leila Chops”
Jum Jum (pronounced “Yum Yum”): Jum Jum is such a cool name that we generally sing her name to the tune of a very famous piece of orchestral music that I unfortunatley don’t know the name of. (Jum Jum Jum Juuuumm. Jum Jum Jum Juuuumm. Jum Jum Jum Jum, Jum Jum Jum Jum, Jum Jum Jum Jum… Jum… Juuuuuummmmm!)
Chookiyaki: Well, Chookiyaki is such a fabulous name that we don’t think we can improve on that.
As for my husband, we’ll leave his pet name until another time. :o)
