You Talkin' to Me?

Nicknames...we've all got'em. Our people are lucky we are smart. I have been called by more names, than the preverbial Carter has liver pills (whoever that is). I thought it would be interesting to share some of our nicknames with you all and you could do the same in the comment section.  I know none of you is called only by your given names, so let's hear 'em.

Naturally, we'll start with me.

Let's see, we've got Will, Wilma Meats, Vilma and Willy D.There's Grillma(you can imagine when and why they call me that) and Chillma ( that's for when I'm chillin'). They call me Vimma, Independant Wil, Liberty Roosevelt Wilhelmena ( I never come when they call me that. It's my AKC name and I know I'm in trouble if I hear that name). I think my first nickname was The Bambeast or Bambeasty, stemming from the fact that I was a little beast as a puppy(can you believe that? I wouldn't)

Next we'll move on to Brigitte

She goes by Britte (pronounced breet, for the nickname Charro gave Brigitte Neilson on another one of those hideous low brow,reality shows they like to waste their time watching), Brigitte P, Dependable B, Britte La Feet, Her Mommy's feet, Breedletons McGee ( I know, they're ridiculous aren't they? I don't know where they come up with these silly monikors) and Vigilent B. I've also heard them call her Mrs.Bambridge and Nosy B (she get's those two when she starts acting like one of those nosy old ladies in the neighborhood) I almost forgot one of my personal faves, Mrs. Nippletitz.

Lastly, we'll look at what I've heard them call Sluggo

He's Slugs, Sir Slugs Da Pugs, Col.Chiggy Bomb and Sluggy Bee ( I will embellish on the Sluggy Bee in a future post.Him and Mom have this whole wierd thing around that one) Here's a rated R nickname-The Glig. They use this nickname when he pulls this move where he's able to take his front elbow and rub his weiner with it. (This is called jiggling the gligPoopstick or The Poopstick is another one. Notice a trend folks? The more pugs, the more nutty the nicknames.Then there's Sly. When they call him that they'll start singing this song. It goes something like...

They call me Sluggo
They call me Sly
They call me Poopstick
And I know why

This is sung in a sort of cheerleader phrasing.

So there you have it, just a few of the favorites.So tell us, what's your nickname?

  2. Hi Elgins,
    Izzy, your name boobis made me remember one of Brigittes nicknames, Mrs. Nippletitz her nips are long and Mom and Dad thought she might have had a litter before she came here, but the vet said no. I had Mom ammend the post to include it, but I knew you would appreciate the heads up.

    Josie, my Dad really liked sleep study. He said I could share that one with you.

    Anakin, Sluggo has that same bear rug move.Mom calls it the Pug rug. BOL, Poop Manufacturer!!
    I am very excited to hear everyones nicknames. You guys have some real funny ones.

  3. Hey Wilma! We love all your have so many! Well Tuni is obviously a nickname cuz her real name is Petunia. We also call her Tuni-woons, Tunsters, Fruity-Tuni, Wooney, Old Lady, and Looney-Tunes (yeah lets face it she is a little crazy).

    I am Sequoia-boy-boy-ums, (even though I am a girl..hmmm?) Executive Chef (I help cook). I think I need more nick names like you all have.


  4. Love the nickname post! My favorites for you guys are: Wimma (which I pronounce Weema), Britte and Vigilant B., and of course, Sly!

    My own nickname is Lucy or Luce - which comes from a Seinfeld episode and is too complicated to explain. And I like it so well that I named one of your cat cousins Lucy.

    We call her Lu, Luce, Lulee, Lucinda and Lucevinda, or some times Lu-head.

    Your other cat cousin, Zelda, gets called: Zel, Zeldie, Zelda McFadden (no one knows why), The Hoot Cat, Hootie, Hootep and Hootine.

    Its good to know we're not alone in our insanity! ;)

  5. Hi Wilma! You and your siblings have lots of nicknames! Sheesh! How do you know when your parents are talking to you or just talking?

    I don't have that many nicknames. Mom always calls me Wubby which I think is the lazy version of Stubby. She also calls me Stubby-Roo and sometimes just Roo. I'll answer to anything if she has food in her hand!

    Stubby xoxo

  6. Wilma, this is the funnest post! You're so right, it's a good thing we're so smart and can figure out all our different nicknames.

    Let's see, Stella is called; Peanut, Stella Wella, Baby Girl. Gunther is called; Man Man and Gunter. Ms. Betty is called Lu Lu more than she's called Betty these days.

    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  7. Love your nick names!
    I never gave any of my animals a nick name - but one of Toby's blogging friends always called him "Tobster", I love it!

  8. I am loving all these nicknames. I hope everyone continues to post with theirs!

    Tuni and Sequoia boy-boy-ums,
    I like your nicknames, but you definitely need more. Sequoia, I like that you are executive chef, do you cook?

    Auntie Luce,
    I knew my cousins would have lots of nicknames. Assigning them runs in the fams.

    It doesn't really matter what they call us,cuz we only come if we feel like it. And like you, that usually involves food!

    Peanut, Man Man and LuLu,
    Isn't it fun. Of course, Mom and Dad thought of more of our nicknames after the post. Maybe there will have to be a part II

    Toby's trainer,
    I understand why Tobster didn't have any nickname. He had much stricter guidelines than us pugs. There is a reason you don't see pugs as service dogs.(Although we do provide comedic service which is very important!)
