    Helloooooooooo,

    For my 100th post and while I should be studying for a medicine exam, I thought I would create a poll about how many people's SDN names are the names of their pets!

    (Seems to be a trend!)

    Ahhh procrastination.........:rolleyes:

    :)love: Hollycozza :love: is the name of my first Angora goat)

    Okay, last post of the morning!

    Pressmom is a combination of my dog's nickname and my role in his life. His name is Preston, and I'm his mom! I have another dog named Henry too. (But hen-penmom doesn't sound the same.) Guess my dad will really know my screen name now, as he sometimes reads here too!

    Mine is the name of the cat I picked out for my sister Angelo and my birth year. I tried to put a picture of him but they were too large. He's a beautiful chocolate point birman--so cute!

    of all my pets' names!
    Fl (Floyd, 11yo aussie/husky mix)
    Ke (Kelty, 9yo cattle dog-lookin' mutt)
    Ma (Margaret Thatcher, the toothless, smelly, opinionated "feral" cat)
    He (Herbie/Herbert Hoover, a very big & handsome Maine Coon-looking cat)

    flokemahe. It sounds kind of Hawaiian though, doesn't it?

    Mine's a derivative of my german shepherd's name. I said this in the avatar thread, but some others have mentioned the name so here it is again:

    her name is Danka (german for Thanks).
    that became Dankle, Hankle, Hoodle (that's me)
    most of the time, she's the Hoo.

    My SDN name is a variation on our family's toy poodle (actually my mom's toy poodle but he loves everyone)!

    His name is Remington... with the nickname Remy.

    He likes to rip up things like newspaper, anything that he gets his little paw on... Ripper! :p

    Finally, 315 is my favorite number!

    rex is the name of my latest yellow lab who just passed a few months ago. whenever he was outside he'd eat the bark off trees, literally chomped and swallowed! so we always said he was more of a dinosaur, hence rexosaurus :D

    mine's "tex" for Texas (where I live) and "xlaevis" for the Latin name for my favorite lab animals-- X. laevis (African clawed frog). So, sort of a pet! :)
