I am bored. And Augus isn't here to play with me!
Have u heard this saying, "An idle mind is the Devil's playground"? Well, I must have a very bored Devil too cos all he could think of was this curious topic: Pet names for pets.
I don't mean the names you were given by your hoomans, e.g. Benny (my buddy) or Chester (both the big and the small one), but names other than that. My hoomans have a couple of names other than Cody for me. I think you will be rather puzzled when you hear their favourite one for me... Here goes, take a deep breathe and don't laugh; it is FUNGUS!
Got you scratching you head? How did a prim and proper Welsh Pembroke Corgi named Cody be labelled FUNGUS? Read on...
You see, unlike most doggies who adopt their hoomans' last names or surname, I didn't. Dad said this doesn't give respect to my birth father if I were to take Daddy's surname. But calling me just Cody didn't seem right, especially when my hoomans wanted to scold me. I mean calling a person by their full name would make them sit up and take notice and this is especially handy when you are trying to drum something into someone's (like mine) skull. After much thought, they called me Cody Moldy. I think a glimmer of understanding is shining through the fog now isn't it? Moldy means fungus, a kind of organism that feeds on other organisms. I haven't seen one yet but when I do, I'll show it you.
So now my hoomans call me Cody Moldy everyday and when Mumsy wants to irritate me, she calls me FUNGUS at the top of her voice. You won't believe how embarrassed I am when she does that. Thank goodness she has only done it at home. Can you imagine how embarrass I will be if she starts calling me FUNGUS when we are at a dog run? I will be laughing stock of all the doggies there!
How about you guys? Do you have pet names other than the proper ones your hoomans gave you? Share it with me!
