Finally Friday - What's In a Name??


Happy Friday, furriends! 

This is a picture from a couple of years ago,
before we trekked south to Florida from NC.

So, What's In a Name, you ask?? It can be good or it can be fraught with...
fraught with... eerrrrrr...
stuff you really don't want in there!

Fraught - y Example:
Mom actually called me Sugarplum the other day.
Can you imagine that?
MOUSES! That woman is obsessed with her nicknames, you have no idea.
 I hope she forgets this one real fast.

Good Example, No Fraughtiness:
My real name is Tobias, not Toby. Yep, that's my official,
right on my rabies certificate, at the Stabby Place, for all formal events, name.

Toby, or Tobers, to furriends & fam. 

I even have a title too - Lord Marshal. Given to me when I was a ball of orange fluff,
but it was too big for me at the time, so no one ever used it. 

Still don't, but it is, indeed-y, my title. (this one doesn't appear on my rabies cert though).

  3. My Momma does those stupid nicknames too! I'm not even going to share the more embarrassing ones. Luckily, she changes them frequently so I don't have to put up with any one for very long! ~Bear Cat

  4. Oh, you should hear some of the crazy/embarrassing things my mom calls me. She called me Sweet Pea at the vets. And other people HEARD her. Geez. That's OK, though. I have those people trained. My dad went to pick up refills for my monthly preventatives one time and on the paper bag, right above where the pharmacist wrote "Maggie [and our last name], my Vet Tech wrote "We ❤ Margaret Thatcher!" Ha! It was great.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  6. MOL! But at least she doesn't call you Baby Boy, like our mom calls both Ivan and Izzy (she's confused as well as misguided).

  7. We're lucky - my human's not big on nicknames.

  8. Oh boy, does dad have some nicknames for me! Most of them are loving and sweet, but sheesh- it's the ones I find offensive I can do without.

  9. I didn’t know your official name is Tobias! And you have title. So cool! Oh I’m sorry, but I think Sugarplum is such a sweet nickname for you :-) My boys endure sugary nicknames, too!
