    Our Old English Sheepdog who is almost 11 years old was named by our teenage boys (at the time we got him) and his name is MA$E. Named after the rapper turned preacher/minister. Kinda fun when we go to the vets and they look at the dollar sign.

    We used to have a long-haired Daschund. He was the coolest dog I've ever known.

    His name was Maxx but everyone called him Shmoo. Long story.

    My lab was named Catfish, after Lewis Grizzard's dog. If you knew southern politics and humor, you knew him. He had a column with Atlanta Journal and it was syndicated nationally. I actually saw him in concert and never have laughed so hard in my life. Catfish was the best dog I could have ever had. So, my next lab will be named Cornbread, after his last dog. (I have to wait until my 4 year old can understand that it is not ok that nana's cat hisses at him and he thinks it is fun)

    Right now we have the best dog ever! She's a Westie and her name is Teagan (which is Celtic for pretty). Growing up, we had a Yorkie/daschund mix named Gilly. She was mean as all heck to everybody but me. She would sit and guard me and if anyone came close she would go ballistic on them. If I went into a room and shut the door, Gilly would sit outside and try to bite the ankles of anyone who walked by!:lmao: She lived to be like 20 or something. She was too mean to die.

    My ol' girl is 15 and has a very common dog name...Patches. Our other dog has a crazy name because she is an akc dog from a breeder...although her call name is basic. Pirouette Exotic Blue Ginger (Ginger).

    My Beagle's name is Mickey the Wonder Beagle. We just call him Mickey or Killer or Stupid or Hey You, whichever is appropriate at the time.

    We have had 4 dogs in our nearly 20 years of marriage. :goodvibes With the exception of the Rott being an adult when we got him, the rest we all small puppies when we were blessed with them.

    The two dogs we have had that have passed were our Rott... he came pre-named, he was named Duke! He was a "manly dog" (but a big baby with us) and Duke fit him! Our Sharpei was named Wrinkles, which fit totally (there was no thought process in naming her... DS commented that she was so cute and wrinkley and DH said "Wrinkles?" and we all knew that was perfect!

    The two dogs we have now were both named by our son. Riddler was named by our DS when he was about 5 years old and really into Batman! Riddler is a fiesty, white, German Shepherd mix. Our DS also named our (now two year old) Golden Retriever. He is a spunky, sweet dog named Hendrix Callaway... Hendrix as our son plays guitar, and Callaway as our son loves to golf!

    The funny thing is, that we tend to knickname the dogs (just as we do people/each other). Duke stayed Duke, but Wrinkles somehow turned to "Wrinks" and from there to "Bink". Riddler is often "Rid" or "Riddlemeister". Hendrix is often "Red-Head", "Hendricko", or "Puppy Boy". :rotfl:

    Back in 1974 our :hippie: neighbors place got foreclosed upon. When they moved they left 3 cats. Their names were 1. Monkberry Moonlight Delight 2. Ziggy Stardust 3. Trucker. We adopted 1 & 3 but couldn't get Ziggy to stay around much. They were between 1 & 3 years old when we got them and they lived with us for 21 years. We had them both put to sleep on the same day, He was having seizures and she was so arthritic she could not get around much.

    Our first dog after we were married was a german shepherd named "Klaus" (pronounced like "house" with a "K", not as in Santa), our current dog is "Odie" (but answers to Fat Bast***), and our horses' show name is "DreamCatcher" but his barn name is "Dreamer". :)

    When Al & I were little we had a dashcund whose registered name was:
    Dressels Marmaduke VonMarmon. We called him "Duke". He hated my dad & any other adult male. He loved my mom & us kids. The dog was utterly destructive & and tore up everything and anything he could get his snout on - including a very expensive panama hat of dad's. Even the vet who bred & raised dashcunds said Duke was the meanest dashchund he ever came across. Even though we called him "Duke", dad called him "dead" after about 2 years (if even that).

    The first cat DH & I had was named "Shi##y Kitty" until his first trip to the vet when he became "Kitty Kat". I don't know where we came up with his first moniker because Kitty Kat was pure white and a very good boy. He was 20 when we finally had to have him put to sleep. Other pets I've had include:

    Dally, Clarence, Prince, Cleo, Penelope, Sugar Babe (all these were dogs I grew up with). Since married - all cats: Kitty Kat, Cricket, Dusty, Sally, Tabihta, Nicholas & Cassie. We're down to the last two - Nicky (13) Cassie (12). After the last two are gone, I think I will be pet free. I've only had about 6 months in my entire life that were pet free.

    Growing up I had a dog (mutt) named Howard. Awesome dog!

    Since adult, DH and I have had:
    dog: Sam (lab/chow mix) - died 2 yrs ago at age 15 1/2 :angel: My "baby"
    dog: Bandit (Rottweiler) - died 1996 at age 4 (cancer) :angel:
    dog: Copper (Rottweiler) - will be 12 next month
    dog: Maggie (Rottweiler) - 2 1/2 (we think - rescued her from a shelter)
    cat: Lilo (gray tabby) - will be 3 next month - found her in the woods. She was about 2 weeks old. DH calls her the "kidiot" :rotfl:

    I haven't thought about Clarence in years! That was one goofy dog.

    Duke was really mean. I remember taking him to a market once and he crapped all over the place. I got out of there really fast. Fezers Deb! :lmao:

    My wife was raised on a farm and they always had a dog - always named Scamp. When one Scamp got into trouble - chased the cows or got into the chickens - that Scamp would disappear and another Scamp would take it's place. as far as I know, Scamp was a genderless dog - male or female - whatever was available.

    Later on they they got a dog that stayed around for longer - most of my kids grew up with her - Taffy. She had 3 legs (tractor accident), frost bitten nose, mangy coat - half an ear - and the kids could do anything to her and she took it. Great dog.

    1- Finnegan= soft coated wheaten terrier
    2- Mitzi= miniature schnauzer
    3- Taffy= cat named by the kids
