    My lab has been given a host of nicknames since we got him 4 years ago and I was wondering if anyone else has some they call their dogs. With Lucius he was called Mr Puppyman when he was small by my mother and I used to call him smoosh due to his squishy puppy face :) he went to daycare at 4 months old and was quickly given the name "special" or special needs by the staff whenever he did something outrageous like running into a fence or being his clumsy self. :) we've I've been calling him moosh or lucimoosh recently and my parents have been calling him a grumpy old man (he's 4 but acts like he's 10 :D) our beagle gets called all the names under the sun when he's naughty, I call him trouble since that's what he does most days but parents call him pupsy (his name is pup) or dudes or sometimes pupsydudes :D any one else have nicknames for their furry friends?

    my first dog was called Ben we rescued him changed to Benjamin then Jamin or benny boy or Benny baby. My cats were dookie or always known as Doodie, oodie, doodie pip, oodie pip, pip, pippy poo, skinny minny, kinny, kinny kin kins. Other cat Nimrod always known as Nimmie or Immie, Immie ooh, fatty mcfatty fatty, patty. My dog now Kyko generally gets Keeks or Keek Keek or Kiki or Kiki D. That's the names I call or called them that I could say on a public forum :D

    Tilly was often Till, and occasionally Chief Crazy Dog.
    Cooper is often shortened to Coop, and some times lengthened to Super Cooper (at 80# she could never be Mini Cooper).

    I have about 3 nicknames for my Lab... None of which have anything to do with his actual name, but seem to suit him and so I can't help but use them. As long as I only use his proper name for training and import stuff, I figure it can't be too bad a thing :D It's the same with my cat though, so I guess I just like nicknames.

    All have great names, a few were named when we got them. We changed one lab's name as it sounded so ridiculous. A couple have had nicknames, but we mostly use their given names.

    Toby gets called lots of things but when he grew really fast be became Tonythepony after a miniature pony we saw on holiday. After his ear removal I asked for family suggestions for a nice nickname. My son came up with
    Tobyoneloby which I thought was quite clever.

    Gwenni gets called many a thing - Gwens, Gwenster, Pumpy (pumkin and puppy blended), Guinea pig. She also has many a song made up for her for different occasions ! I am just as silly as she is :)

    Ha....yes all the time....our lovely old Lab Jake actually also answered to Cheesy.....as we used it so much....not quite sure where it came from but it evolved over time....
    I’m finding myself already calling our new 12 week old pup Arnie....Arnie Bananie....and I have to stop myself as he’s only just learnt Arnie....
    We also watch a lot of football and all the footballers names turn into daft dog names....ie. Harry Kane becomes Hairy Pain and used whenever our dog is being a pain in the bum...

    Never realised quite how many we had until looking at this thread. Actually might be borderline confusing for her!! So Luna is....

    Loons, Loopy Luna, Loony (by the trainer), Lunatic (by a different trainer) Luna Buna, Poppet, Gorgeous-girl, Clever Stick, Pup Pup.....
