The naming of hounds

October 2, 2019

Inspired by a recent post by the utterly wonderful @briannamadia I thought I’d fully introduce our two van hounds with all of the nicknames they’ve accumulated over the past four years since we adopted them. I don’t even know how some of these started, some of them escalated quite quickly, others grew on us over time:

First up is Bonnie, the black whippet-x as her repertoire is the more extensive: Bonnie, bean, string-bean, Bonnie-bean, Bonnie-bear, princess Bon-Bon of the waves, Bonnington Bear, Bonners, Bonneroo, Mrs wiggles, Mrs squiggles, squiggleton bean, squiggleton bear, baby bird, baby boo, Bonnie-boo, and finally madame squiggleton. And then we have Kit: Kit star, Kick start, kick start my heart, kittington, Kitaroo, Kitledoo, goofy, dufus, the big lad, golden boy, scruff bag, water hog, big fella, KIT YOU MASSIVE IDIOT DONT JUMP OVER THAT FENCE … I reckon we’re not the only ones who do this 😂🙈. Would love to know some of your pet names? 📷 @andyrgarside 🐕
