A friend of mine told me today that I have WAY too many nicnames for my little Buster. She said that I would confuse him, and he'd never learn his REAL name (even though he already knows it....) I ALWAYS use his 'real' name when doing obedience....and the rest of the time, he just answers to my tone of voice, not the actual name. :p
Here are a few of his names: buddy, angel, stinky-bum, puppy, monkey, bunny, drooly, bossy, cutie, handsome, droopy, dawgy, silly dawg, busty, tiger, big red, Boo, bobo, skinny-bone, bone-head...the list goes on and on!!!
How many names does your pet have??

My boys know their names but they have a ton of nicknames as well! :D

Because we have only had Marty and Minou a month - we obviously try really really really hard to call them their names.. . (which is sometimes kinda hard) They sorta know them I think!
I do say to Marty 'Marty - are you my special little guy?'
and Minou we always call her 'Pretty Kitty'
As a collective - I call them my little Moggies!
And when we come in, I always call to them 'Hello kiddens' 'come'er kiddens'
I'm sure as time goes by I'll have tons more nick names for them! :p

Here are ours:
Boo: Boobear, Boobly, Biggie, Big Boo, Boobie, Boobs, Good Boy, Boobieloobie
Jemma: Jemmie, Cutie, Baby Girl, Little Girl, Crabby, Vicious doggy, Pretty Girl, Jemmalemma...
I think that's it. I call any of these, or basically say "Where's my (name)?", a doggy comes running (hopefully). Well, actually, when I say Crabby, I get a crabby dog, whether she was crabby or not to begin with...

Sometimes I call him Knucklehead.
