Nicknames for Our Dogs

1105

Why do we take such care to name our dogs, then call them by every cute nickname we can conjure? It’s laughable!

When I adopted Cee-Cee (pictured above) from foster parents who were acting for a rescue facility, she was called Gigi. Because I didn’t know if I wanted to say “Gee-Gee”, or its French-sounding version that puts more emphasis on the soft “g”, I decided, instead, to rename her. Not wanting a name that to her would change too much, I settled on “Cee-Cee”, a compromise in sound that would make the name transition easy for her.

And, on any given day from the start of our relationship, I’ve called her “Sweetie-Cakes”, “Bratsker”, “Sweet-Pea”, “Cee-sar”, “Cee-Girl”, “Snooks”, “Susie-Q”, “Little Small”, “Sweetie-Pie”, or “Pumpkin”!

Does your dog have a nickname, or five?

Show It Dogs

ABOVE: Yes, Ebony, my Newfoundland female (1998-2009) did have a tail! It’s actually hanging to the side, toward the camera, here; look closely.

My contention is solid that a dog’s love of the human race isn’t prompted by his pure breed, or mutthood. Dogs are champions of love. Love the dog; he loves you! It’s simple and unconditional.

However, did you know there is a definite difference in the canine show rings of America and Britain in regards to a dog having the word Champion (Ch) placed with his name?

Britain and America have slightly different rules when it come to naming a dog a show Champion. In Britain, a dog must win three Challenge Certificates in three different shows from three different judges to earn the Champion moniker that precedes his show name.

An American Champion is determined when the dog has accumulated 15 points, earned on a one- to five-point system scale in each show he enters. Only one female and one male in each American show may earn points.

Most breed dogs have a history that led to their name. For instance, the Newfoundland took the name of its original country, Newfoundland. Terrier is the origin of “terra”, which in Latin translates to “earth”. Therefore, the Terrier dog derived his breed name, since he is one who “goes to earth” to hunt prey such as foxes, rabbits, and badgers.

Most Mutthoods, like my current pal, Cee-Cee, just answer to the call, “Hey, you”, and are happy to do it!
