No Wonder They Don't Listen!

It should come as no surprise that our animals are confused and/or do not pay us any attention. Last night, Allen and I discussed all the different names we have for each of our four legged family members!

Here is the "off the top of my head" list of secondary names for each of them! [which the pronunciation in brackets!]

Apollo - Pollo, Polloson, Apolloson, Bub, Bub-be, King Tut, Attitude (with a Capital "A"!)

Gypsy - Gyps [jips] , Gyps-Gyps [jips-jips], Nip Nip (I guess 'cause it rhymes!?), Queen, Queen Gypsy

Wednesday - Whinny, Whin, Whin-Whin, Midge, Midge-let, Midgey, Pitt, Fiona, FiFi...and Allen could continue on with this list with even MORE ridiculous names ;)

Mossy - Moss, Moss-dog, MossyMo, Hound, HoundDog, Hound-doogee [do-gee], HoundBurgluar (!), Mossberg, Oak Tree, Stinky, Smelly Kid

Daisy - Dais, Donkey, DonkaDonk, Hinny
