I've been compiling a list of the names I call my dog (because what else do you do at 6am on a Sunday morning?!) and I wonder if there are an excessive number or if it's normal among dotty dog owners. Unless I'm forgetting any there are 18. I get most of them in every day, some only once or twice a week but regularly enough I think. I haven't even counted any that are hybrids with her actual name.

Haha, these are reassuring! I did't post my list for fear of being thought mad, but looks like I'm not alone at least! So:

Monkey bum
Wormy pants
Fish face
Collie flower

She's also my 'Furry-tail princess', but that's more of a term of endearment than a nickname.
