Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day. Since I work from home, I guess this means the dogs felt gypped. To show his disapproval, Foxie Doxie got in the ladytime trash again.
This time, instead of just enjoying the delights of ladytime trash, he left bits of used, half-eaten ladyproducts in one of my shoes.
In an effort not to kill my dachshund terror, I have compiled a list of all of the pet names I use to refer to my canines. These are names of adoration, the monikers of love. You know, what I call them when I’m not saying “Who did this?” or “We go POTTY OUTSIDE.”
I’m trying to channel the adorableness in hopes of forgetting the assholery.
|They’re so cute when they’re unconscious.|
|Actually, this guy is pretty OK all the time.|
When they’re cute, well-behaved, and / or asleep, I call them:
- Little chickens
- Baby chickens
- Fluffy chickens
- Chicken pot pies
- Sweetness (this is a collective name, kind of like “Dawn” of “Tony Orlando and Dawn”)
- Baby puppies
- Pumpkin bears
- Lil’ pumpkins
- Baby bears
- Honky bears
- Fluffy honkies
- Crazy paws
- Love (again, another collective, back-up singer-esque name)
- Puppy loves
- Chow hounds
- Noodleroos (at last, the mystery of my blog title is solved – I named it after my dogs)
So, yes, I’m That Lady. But I have no doubt that there are awesome dog monikers that I’m missing. What do you suggest? What do you call your furry pals?
