    Default Pet Names

    Since we are on the topic of animal's... What names from the fire service have you given your pet? My cat's name is Pickles from a book I read when I was a kid called "The Fire Cat" .

    Cool

    The dogs: Bernie and Murphy. They are a lab/spaniel cross, brothers from the same litter. Murphy is a black "slab o' Lab", while Bernie looks like a spaniel. Their dad was a lab, their mom was a brittany/cocker spaniel cross.

    The cats: Jake and Mia. They are grey tiger tabbys and brother and sister. We adopted them from a shelter... www.buddydoghs.org

    Jake thinks he's a dog. He hangs out with the dogs, will only eat of the dogs are eating, and sleeps with the dogs, too. He asndf the dogs get along well.

    It's funny, Mia sticks to my wife like velcro.. must be the only females in the house/meow meow sisterhood thing going! She avoids the dogs and the men in the house (my son and I) as much as possible, except for feeding time...then she becomes real "lovey-dovey".

    I have 2 cats, the Wife named them both when were dating. Both were abandoned, at different times,where I used to live, so we took them in.

    Thomas O'Malley is named after a character in the Aristocats (or so my wife tells me) since he has a whit stripe on his leg just like tha character does. Since he is 19 pounds I also call him "Chub Chub" or Fat Boy. Great cat though. As big and fat as he is, he can still move pretty darned fast. He was quite the hunter in the day, used to get a wide variety of gifts from him on the doorstep.

    Noisebox (aka Noisey!) is the little guy. His name tells it all, when we took him in he would not stop making noise in one way or another. Now he meows to let you know that he wants a lap to lie down in.

    Both are great cats and allow us to reside in the house with them. When we are acutally going to be able to get a house, I want a Bull Mastiff and the wife wants a Finnish Spitz. Someday I'll own a house. Someday.....

    I love that book! Pickles is the cat in my avatar. He was an awesome firecat. Had his own little helmet and everything. My own cats are Murka, Stormy and MaryJane.

    Rilee is our Golden Retreiver. Samson is the feline representative in the house. He used to be part of the tandem of Samson and Delilah, but alas, Delilah is no longer with us.

    My dog was named after a dog in a veterinary "true stories" book. Same breed, same characteristics. My vet laughed when I told him that and then read the book for curiosity. Now he's hooked on the series. A fire related name just wouldn't fit my dog. The closest would be Stop, drop and snore

    No fire service names here. Mu house/farm must be the dropping vortex for my county. Ebrything shows up. Have yet to not take on in or find a home for it. The black lab is Midnite. She was a lucky pup. Came home Christmas Eve and went to barn to check on everybody and heard a whining noise comeing from an outbuilding. Guess what time it was we we found her. Yep Midnite. She has been in the house warm evry since. That was 11 years ago. Now my only house cat is named Scarface. I have a Halloween/birthday party every year. While sitting and the hay bales around the fire and getting smashed of my but this long haired cute little kitten jumped on my lap and made herself right at home. She had been in a fight somewhere and had blood on her face, hence the name. Now I did have 3 cat that are now dead that I brought home as kittens that were to young to eat on their own. Bottle fed them. They came from a structure fire, no momma cat around. They were Ashes, Smoke, and Flame. All 3 are now gone. The other handful of cats, to many to count,all stay in the barn and the other dog is at the inlaws. People must know we do not believe in killing animals so they bring them to use. Gets expensive to have them fixed but I don't want to keep making them. You would think that they would earn their keep in the barn. Yeah right. They eat better than I do thanks to the girlfriend.

    We have a 12 y/o Border Collie named "Cassie". Before she came along it was a Beagle-Retriever mix named "Biph the Wonder Puppy" (it's pronounced "biff").

    My little puppy is a black lab saint bernard he eats anything that does not eat him first. He weights in at 132lbs. Maybe I should start a thread for this but my brother and I got him and one of his brothers at the same time. His was named Axe mine’s Bull. Yeah I know Backdraft was the big movie then. The poor Dalmatian gets what ever is left over. His name is RIT.

    i put this in the wet dry dry food topic but here it is again.

    The non-human ruler of the house is "Lindsey." Named after Lindsey Air Station, Air Force base in Wiesbaden, Germany. The best place anyone could ever be stationed (now closed).

    The dogs are Missy and Amess. My little cousin thought he looked like a mess when he was born and the name stuck. The cats are un named and shall stay that way. They're only around to catch mice.

    Here is Pickles doing his usual "thing". He usually snores, he sometimes burps, and when he farts it clears the room!

    When I was about 8 years old my dad went to an MVA one night and all occupants of the car were DOA. Except the dog. We had no idea what breed it was. Dad brought it home from the wreck, so we called it "Rescue."
