Okay, since we have a "Berry Faces" thread, I figured we should have one for our beloved pets. Tell us all about your pets, how/why you chose their names, and of course--pictures!!!
My little cat, Pepper. She's sweet and loveable, but also feisty and independent. I chose her name because she looks like a jar of mixed peppercorns.
My gianormous dog Kuno. He loves food. He's talkative and howls and whines at me when I come home. He's most likely a shepherd/sighthound mix. I was browsing a name site and found the name Kuno. I thought it was neat sounding, and I loved that it meant "brave". Alas, Kuno is a wuss.
My ratty girls! All are sweet, loveable little ratties who like to snuggle and explore. All three were named for literary characters--just for fun!
Last but not least is my Appaloosa pony, Mia. She is incredibly laid back. I can do anything to her and she doesn't care. However, she loves her food and can get very upset if she thinks she's not getting fed on time! I chose Mia because she had a yearling foal when I got her, and the folks were calling her Mama. Mama Mia, get it? Lame, I know.
Oh, yay, I should've thought to start this thread because I already hijaked the "berry kids" thread with a picture of my dog! Her name is Pepper and she's two-and-a-half. She is a very naughty puppy ;)
I have two dogs and a cat :)
Brandy nn bea, bebe, beezus, brandy bear or bear
Gemma nn Gi, Gigi, Gem, Gem Gem or Jesus
and my puddy Tommy nn Tom or Tom Cat
I am the worst at uploading pictures, but here's a link to all my beloved fur babies!
Oh my gosh, cute overload. Kuno's coat is gorgeous!
This is Leo. He died in September, but I'm including him. Because.
This is Sebastian. He's our 5 year old goofball.
And Clementine, our newest furbaby. Clem might actually be a boy. We can't tell yet, and will find out in the next couple weeks when we take her in for spaying/neutering. If she's a boy, we'll name him Oleander.
OMG YES! I love showing off my babies! :D
Calcifer - He is named after the fire demon in Howl's Moving Castle. It was the first movie my husband and I saw together and the only name we could agree on, lol!
Mittzy - Originally mittens because her paws are black, but my husband liked Mittzy better, and then I got in the habbit of calling her Mittzy and well, she really is more of a Mittzy than a Mittens :)
Calcifer and Mittzy together, both will be 3 in June!
I don't have pictures. :(
But I can still tell you about my babies! :)
Massey (prn. Mass-ee) - my tiny, runt-of-the-litter black-and-tan smooth coated dachshund. She only weighs about 5-7 lbs, but she's perfectly healthy. She just can't gain weight. :/ She'll be 5 in November. She's COMPLETELY spoiled rotten, and loves to cuddle on the couch under a blanket. :)
Mars - I didn't have a chance to name her, unlike Massey. Since she's a solid white, short haired (fat) cat, her nicknames include Smarsh, Marsh and Marshmallow. She's a bitter cat that hates everyone except me. With me, she loves to cuddle and be pet. :) And nap.
I don't have a pic on me right now but;
I have 1 dwarf hamster- Pashmina!
I usually call her Pashie or Pashy-butt (yes I know I'm a weirdo)
For about the first five minutes I had her, her name was Ginger, because of her colouration, but I felt that it was too cliche for a pet, so I went with Pashmina instead, which is extremely soft, like her fur.
