    I had a Basset Hound named "Mr. Beaux Jangles" and his successor, "Plumply." Plumply was named after a jdubyas little red-headed daughter (2 yo) who couldn't pronounce her own name (Penelope). My older sis got embarrassed when I would go outside and call Plumply, because of the name. I just told her to be glad I hadn't named her "Belly Button" as I'd first intended.

    Then there was a long haired guinea pig we had. He was all white with a black face. His face was surrounded by a white ruff and he had a huge "handlebar moustache." I called him Yosemite Sam. We also had a black cat I called "Ming" because she had a lot of Siamese personality....and the Siamese growl. Of course, it sounded like "mean," which kind suited her anyway. My Mom had two Boston Bulls given to her with the names "Oh, Hell!" and "Dammit!." She hated having to call for them when they were outside. They loved to chase me when I was still running around outside in training pants and sneak up behind me and pull my pants down in back.

    No pets here, but I've told people if I owned a dog and a cat I would name the dog "kittie" and the cat "doggie" to confuse the neighbors and visitors.....

    Growing up, I had a cat named Cujo.


  • wombat

    Raised an orphan joey (kangaroo) once. Called it Rhubarb. Bad choice of name. It got killed in a barb wire fence.

    Had a beautiful Australian bluey cattle dog called Wombat. Man..he was the best friend you could ask for.

    I forgot about Matilda. A beautiful little Jersey heifer (moo cow). Often times I would lie with my head on her stomach (and a beer on mine) and just stare at the stars. She was soft and warm and had beautiful big brown eyes.

    Nah I'm all for soft cuddly love .. I've raised more animals than Taronga zoo (you must be thinking of Doc Jekyll lol).

    I can't think of a strange name though - Wally is a natural name for a wombat and Myrtle was named after where she was recued (myrtle mountain) then there's my budgies mr blue budgy and mrs green budgy and my cocky named chook ..

    A cocky probably not named chook:


  • wombat

    Your Chook is a galah, not a cocky, you galah.

    I was expecting a snide reponse to my feelings towards Matilda with her big brown eyes.

    Remember unc...Necessity is the mother of strange bed-fellows.

  • unclebruce
