I'm new, so forgive me if this thread has come up recently. I love to hear what nicknames your dogs have.
Rosey's registered name is Kazor's Savannah Wildrose. I gave my then 4-yr old son the choice of calling her Savannah or Rosey. He chose Rosey, go figure.
Some of her nicknames include:
Pretty Girl
Baby Girl
Fat Pig ( yeah, not nice, I know-my son calls her this because Cushings has given her a potbelly and he likes to make fun of her.)

How 'bout your b's?

Registered Name is El Dorado's Dark Secret…Topaz

Registered name El Dorado's CThreePO by Sadiki....C3PO
poochie boy

crazy boy

he's not very cuddly just like DH so they get along well don't like being crowded and at times he gets ants in his pants & can't relax so he looks like a hyper active child. And there are times he just acts crazy out of the blue!!

Great topic. Abbey is Abbey Guin or Sissy (her dog mom is Guinivere), she seems to like Sissy best. Sometimes she responds to it better than to Abbey. I also call her Lucy Boo if I'm not mad at her. She probably thinks her name is No, Stop or Don't Do That!

Hollie, like most of your dogs, has several nicknames.

Hollywood (the most used)
Holly Hunter (because she is obsessed with squirrels)
Stink Bottom (because she is spoiled rotten)
Chewbacha (because she likes to chew)
Poke-a-nose (because she is constantly poking us with her nose)

No basenji yet (but very soon I will) My cat Maddox is called:
Mr. Pooper
Little Man
and Mad Max when he opens his mouth and gets that crazy look in his eye right before he attacks your feet.

Not too many nicknames here – nor none too clever, but Jazzy responds to:


We got Candle as a puppy, so she is known as Pupples.
Zorro weighs in at 26 pounds so he is Big Z.
