Yes. It might need to be Ms Twit.

Point out that whenever the dog bounds off the lead in the park, he's going to be the one who feels a right Twit calling it back.

(Will it be Miss Twit if you get a girl dog?)

A friend of mine called his cats kitty and meow just so his dw could stand on the step calling their names every evening, he found that highly amusing. Maybe it's a bloke thing.......

It's great! It immediately brings to mind an vivid image of said dog, drawn by Quentin Blake.

Even better if it's a girl dog.

the stupid thing is that he originally said he didn;t like dogs with beards. fair enough. they look cute but are definitely a bit grotty-looking. then he deicided we could have one with a beard as long as we called it Mr Twit.now we've narrowed the breed down to 2 - and neither has a beard. so I assumed the whole Mr Twit thing was dead. and then last night he started refering to the-dog-that-doesn't-even-exist-yet as Mr Twit. as in "so, where are we going to put Mr Twit's basket?". love dh dearly but I really do think I'll have to put my foot down.

Oh, that's a GREAT name for a dog. Lovin' it.

One of my all time favs was a friend who called her dog 'Catherine'. Shortened to Cat.

I think its a fab name - go on let him it!

If it had been up to dh our dogs would have been called Alan and Neil - what! I had to intervene with those names Im afraid. He got his own way with the rabbit though which we call Paul! (and our hamster was called Steve)

Last time we went to the vets, the vet refused to call it Paul and instead refered to it as 'the rabbit.'

when my db got a dog - I was about 15 I think, and he about 20, we spent hours posl at names. we were desperate to call it Kevin, or Keith, or Conrad. (we settled for Thomas, knowing it was the "right" thing to do) I do know a dog called Collin.

If you don't
Tell him they might think you're calling him and not the dog when you're out together
