Almost everyone I know has a nickname that usually isn't related to the real name of their pet. I got to thinking of all the pets that I've had over the years and how they all had a nickname and what was the reason behind the name. What got me to thinking about this is my 5 month old puppy, Jake, and his nickname.... Happy Meal. I know, pretty dumb but he's always bouncing around, so happy and one day I looked at him jumping around and said "Ya little Happy Meal!" And it stuck. My beloved late Dobie, Jason was known as Toot Toots, not because of anything he ate, but because when his litter was old enough to go for walks with me they followed me single file through the fields as I pretended to play on a pretend flute.
Share your pets nickname and how they got it. I'll be totally surprised if there is anyone else as goofy as me :)
