We have 2 male dogs, before we had 2 females, so we call them the boys, before them were the girls. Regardless, I do classify them as my fur babies, they are members of my family and they are very missed when they pass over the Rainbow Bridge, as are ones that passed decades ago.

My Chihuahua was called Francisco but we ended up calling him Paco the Taco.

We named my adopted dog (chihuahua) "Rico Suave". I recently adopted another dog that had a name already, "Chico Suave" Poor confused guys! Chico is now Chi-chi. Don't know who was more confused before the renaming, the boys or me!

Cats were also "fee-dee-oots" I have no idea why.

I lovingly call my cats fleabags. The vet told me that term is one that is equally used ....both lovingly and not so lovingly for pets.

We have dogs and horses--always! Current dogs are Sheba (the neurotic one) and Whitey--who we really did not think about name much cause he was a "dump" dog that our other dogs at the time allowed to stay (we live in the country and scumbags dump their dogs when they don't want them ) Our horses are Lil Red (who has a fancy registration name but she's a little red horse) and Pepper and the latest, a white pony that the g-boys named SnowFlake--but we are calling her Miss Piss cause she escapes the pasture wayyyyy too often. She will be sold in the next few weeks--g-boys live too far away to ride often enough and she needs a frequent rider.

Have 2 cats. Indy or Mom, 'cause she's the mother of Cye, most commonly called "Bubblebutt" as she's slightly overweight
