Thirteen names we have for our dog:

1. Snickers (Her real name. Jacob picked it.)

2. Snick(s)

3. Snickerdoodle (Yes. She was the inspiration for our blog name ;) )

4. Snickadick (That name popped out of my mouth accidentally one day... and it stuck.)

5. Nickers

6. Doodlebug

7. Doodle

8. Princess (She thinks she is one!)

9. Baby Girl

10. Stinker

11. DumbDog (with affection)

12. Turd (What my daddy calls her. One evening I was making dinner while Jacob watched Family Feud. The question was, "A word that rhymes with 'word'." I kept yelling out, "Turd!". Every time I did Snickers would run to me in the kitchen. After about the third time I realized what she was doing. ;)

13. Skittles (My grandma insists that's her name. I used to try to correct her. But she still calls her Skittles. My uncle makes fun of her so now he calls Snick "Milky Way". At least they're all sweet names ;) )

Number 13 just cracked me up! OMG!

We have all kinds of different names for our animals, too.

Mine isn't up, but will be shortly. Don't come by if you aren't feeling up to it.

I see you are feeling yucky. Hugs to you!

#11--- it's nice that yours is with affection. I call mine that alllll the time. Mostly if I'm chasing after him trying to swat his butt. ;) Any dog that eats my fruit trees deserves worse than "dumb dog." HA! Happy TT!

We do this do. We have at least 13 names for each animal.

My 13 is up.

I love number 12. Well, the reaction, rather than the name.

My 13 are up.

Yeah, I have some weird names for my cat, too. His real name is Pooh, the vet calls him Poo (not entirely inappropriate), I also call him stinky butt, poodle, peedle deedle, etc.

My list is up

This is a really funny list -- I may have to borrow the idea. And isn't it funny HOW MANY names we all have for our pets?

And here I thought your inspiration for your blog was the cookie, "Snickerdoodles"! Well, they are good, see my blogs cooking section for the recipe.
Funny isn't it, how we nickname our dogs?

Blogger Reverberate58 said...

Isn't it funny how we love our animals and kids so much we find nicknames to call them. All 3 of my cats have various different names and they come by all when called. Even Joshua (my son) has several nicknames but he only tolerats me using most of them!!

Thanks for the visit!

Our dogs all have middle names as well as a ton of nicknames! They know when we use the middle name they are soooo busted!

Sounds like my poor cat - he has a different name every two weeks.

My Thursday Thirteen are up.

Blogger Lena said...

I'm partial to Doodlebug. We like to call our animals by their proper names. Like our dog Allie is Allison. Our cat Jack is Jackson. Why the big names for little animals crack me up, I don't know.

12:24 PM

My TT are up! ...I wonder how many names I have for my dog...

I love this list! I especially love the whole Skittles/Snickers thing! My DH's parents had a rooster (it just sorta wandered into their yard and stayed a couple of years then disappeared). DH's Norwegian grandmother who had senile dementia called that thing Roaster, and we all just adopted it as the name!

Blogger Lord Swayne said...

Wonderful. I didn't know there were so many names you could have for a dog. The only one I know of for our dog is "DumbDog", not said with that much affection (at least, not from my mom anyways).

Anyways, my TT are up.

1:25 PM  
Blogger Norma said...

Obviously a much loved pup with that many names.

1:32 PM  
Blogger Jane said...

I totally understand. We do the same thing with our dog.
BTW, my comment on TT list about things being in the last place you look.....that was totally tongue in cheek!!! I have always thought that was the funniest thing to say.
Thanks for visiting!

56 folks have come by to see the list of your dog nick names.. That is amazing.. lol

I think you could list nothing and we would still stop by.

My 13 is trying hard to think up a clever nick name for itself right now over at

Our dog "Spot" (how's that for orginal) answers to anything as long as you feed her. Hey babe...thanks for the visit...always a pleasure!

Isn't it amazing how dogs end up with SO many names!? Ours has a bunch of them too! And will answer to them all! (or none... who knows?) I could probably holler "Newspaper" and she'd come running!

we dog is named bailey, the kids picked the name, but my son sometimes calls her bailsey and i noticed my youngest daughter is starting to do it too. so it might change.

I'm so jealous of your number of comments! How do you do that?

It's funny how our pets have one actual name, but their personalities and moods make us have to call them other things. I guess it's similar to humans. ;)

Perhaps I'll do something someday about our pet's pet names: Ticklebelly, SneakerPeeker, Stump, etc.

I like your thirteen. Mine were up on Wednesday, Thursday was going to be too busy for me, so I did it early. But I tried to use your link thing at the bottom and it put me at number 85, then when I came back, it was gone. Does it not stick or something? How do you make it stick? Does it take time?
I like your blog design with the brown and the pink and the flowers.
