what’s in a name?

Filed under: perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 11:02 am

my puppy’s name is Peanut.  except i rarely call him that, it’s only when i use it with a command.  i’ve called him peanah’, nahnah, nut, peanut-doodle, doodie, pupperoni, puppah, pooper, and lately it’s “poops”.  but i do often call him “Peanuts” as well.  which M often hears as “penis” (northern accent thing i guess… it’s more of a “Peanits”) which makes me wonder if maybe when i’m outside screaming “Peanuts!  Peanuts NO!  Bad Peanuts!  Peanuts get back here!”  do the neighbors hear “penis” too?  i should probably stop calling him that… or at least stop yelling it across my yard.

not long after he moved in with us, one day i told my doggy to go get his stuffed animal, except i called it by name.  the toy, not the puppy.  and my husband just looked at me and said “how did i know you’d named them??”

because i have a tendency to have my own names for things.  i’m not content just calling something a boring name.  so “stuffed duck toy” doesn’t do it for me.  so let me introduce you to my dog’s fiber filled friends



~ today i learned… the Puli has won best in breed multiple times but has NEVER won Best in Show at Westminster (poor dredheaded doggy) ~



  1. Bwahahaha! I love that you named the toys! And General Schnauzer? That is probably my favorite of the names!
