Eric answers to a range of names because we all call him different things. So depending on who it is and how he's behaving, he's called Erky, Irksome, Bloody Hound ,Poodle Doodle and Baby but the one that he objects to and actually whines in protest at is Baboon grin He's called that because last time he was groomed the groomer was a bit over enthusiastic around his nether regions and he had a very nearly bald bum.

Woofer grin

Spud, Spuddy, Spudlington, Stormageddan.

His name is Storm - only used when he's doing something he shouldn't or we need him here now.

Often when I'm dragging the dog around running with the dog, he stops randomly for an imaginary pee. As he does it very suddenly when I'm trying to get into a rhythm I have been known to refer to him as tosser, fuckwit etc. He responds to these no more than he responds to his own name. However, speak to the cat or get a plate out and he comes running.

They react to each other's names, when I mention Fido Rover looks up and vice versa.
<<not their real names>>

We have one who pretty much only answers to Stupid (he really is!).

For the other two they get Possum, Wifey, FatMan and Feckhead, Fucker, Tunk, Funk the Tunk or Tunkous.

Dog... If overheard in conversation about him.
I like to think his ears prick up when he hears the letters D.O.G. during more covert conversations. That's it though he seems fairly oblivious to most other names good and bad gringrin

mollie123 Sat 04-Jun-16 07:03:58

'oi' smile and 'biscuit or treat' (or a sharp whistle)
