Ok, his name is Gibby (unknown reason he came to me through BRAT) but I call him Gibbs, G Unit Special Forces, "G", Gibson, Magnificent G, Gibbsters, Mr G, Baby G–I'm sure you get it...oh yeah, he knows when you are talking about HIM

Actually I have a phrase that I seemed to use a lot with these guys in general SOOOOOO when I named one of my girls many years ago I added the initials to her name. You would be shocked at how many people think it's a title - and in some ways it is.

So this bitchs name is MIJOKR's Fancy Foot Work SFB ( S–t for Brains.)

Of course I have a lot of dumb names for my dogs in general anyway: Tex Critter, Tribbles n' Bits, GI MO to name a few.

My husband is CONSTANTLY giving Savannah new names. She is:
Savannah
Banners
banban
Pumpkin Noodles
Pumpkin Pie
Precious Pumpkin Pie
Baby Girl
G Force
Pretty Girl
Baby Girl
Princess in a Pie

Geeze, the list goes on. He actually comes home and announces that he's thought of her ALL DAY and tells her the new name he's come up with. Talk about feeling left out!

Does "That Damned Dog!!" count as a nickname? LOL

It is usually exclaimed by Dh after Keoki has stolen someone's food from the dinner table.

LOL

Funny. My DH has the same nickname for Nala! LOL! Also, "PITA"!!

Love it. Yeah, I'm sure if Dh had thought it through he'd have named Keoki 'PITA' instead.

He's {dh} is so funny –in that irritating way -- in that he keeps insisting that "Jazz didn't do this" -- or didn't do it this long, or learned this faster, etc.
Honestly, did he live in the same house when Jazz was a puppy? Sure, she's always been very good, esp for a Basenji, but does he not remember the stolen food? The torn to bits Santa Clause, the slippers I used to own, the neighbor girls' flip-flop? Come on!!! Keoki is only six months old; of course he is a PITA; it's his job! LOL
