Household Pets


When I lived in Ohio we lived in a low income apartment and could not have pets. I promised my children that if I ever bought a house I'd buy them animals.

We moved here to Thatcher, AZ November of 1999, and within the month we went to the local animal shelter and adopted a dog and a cat.

The dog we bought was a german shepard mix. He seemed to be the most calm, so we were interested in him. When I picked the little pup up to look at him, he peed on me. "He marked his spot!" I said, "We'll take him."

As you all know german shepards are very protective, so we named him accordingly. My son wanted to call him, Max, short for Maximum Security. We knew he would protect us. Well, eventually Max, was called Maxy. When I heard my son call him Maxy for the first time, I started giggling and called him Maxi Pad. My son did not find the humour in that.

We gave Maxi Pad a blanket, and even though he had been nuetered, he balled that blanket up under him and would just hump the hell out of it. This old Micky Mouse blanket had more sex than anyone I knew.

I was sitting on the back porch with my friend one day and I looked out to the dog pen and saw Maxi Pad just going at it. I pointed it out to her and told her I'd introduce Maxi's girlfriend as soon as they were done. She started laughing hysterically and said, "Soon you will have receiving blankets."

Maxi Pad died a year and a half ago.

When we adopted Max, we adopted a cute little kitten too. Nothing too funny happened with our little Princess, except she used to climb my clothes and perch herself on my shoulder. She would take a running start, jump, claw into my clothes and climb up. One hot summer afternoon, I had on shorts. She started her running jump and lept, claws out and they sank deep into my leg. "OUCH! MOTHER FUCKING OUCH!" I swatted her away, she never did that again.

OH there was that time she went to drink out of the toilet and fell in, and came flying out of the toilet bowl and hit a full length mirror and it shattered into a million pieces.

She went out to play one day and never came back.

There is a method to my madness, so please be patient with me. LOL

About two and a half years ago, my son and his then girlfriend, wait, she is his girlfriend again, conned me into getting this cute Australian Shepard mix pup, free to a good home. What a cute little puppy. For weeks we tried to find a name that we all agreed on. Being a smoker, I wanted to name her, Marlboro, Camel, or something to the effect. My daughters refused to let me do that.

One day I was buying cigarettes, and saw, Camel Turkish Jade cigarettes. "JADE!" I could not wait to get home and tell the kids I found the name we should name her. They all loved it and I got to use my ideas for naming her. I just recently told my children how I came up with the name.

Well, Jade had two puppies earlier this year. One died shortly after birth, but the other one we have just called Puppy. Puppy is about five or six months old. I have always said this puppy looks dumb. I love Puppy! She is MY dog.

Well, I might offend a few pit bull owners here, but here I go. I was looking at Puppy yesterday and again commented on how I thought she was dumb, but as I looked closer I realized it was not dumb I saw, but maybe, just maybe, she is part pit. I do love pitbulls! I told my children this last night as we were scrapbooking. My oldest daughter (12) called out, "Hey, Part Pit!" using that as a possible name. My quick witted eight year old said, "Not Part Pit, but Arm Pit." Crazy thing is, the dumb dog responds to it! She does not respond to the only name we have called her for five months, but she responds to Arm Pit.

I think we have decided on a new name for her.

Other pets we have had:

Panther, a 20 pound completely black female cat. I called her "My big black bitch"

Midnight, a long haired mutt of cats completely black. My friend called her Eleven Forty-Five. When asked why she called her that, her response was, "It's just as dark at Eleven Forty-Five as it is when it's Midnight."

Medusa, a dove my daughters father gave her. I call her Medusa because she is a mean little pecker.

Cleapatra, my sons hampster he begged for. It was a beautiful teddy bear hampster. When he named her, he said, "Cleo, I want to name her Cleo, Cleo-patra." *giggle*

I'm always curious as to how people come up with their pets' names. Around our house, my ten-year-old son does most of the pet naming. He seems to have a knack for it, although there's no method to it that anyone can see. He just plays with an animal for a while and comes up with a name, and before we know it, we can't imaging calling the animal anything else.

I enjoyed the fact you found some of the humor in owning a pet. Your stories were refreshing and interesting to read. I'm sure there are some on here that will be disappointed on the subject matter...but who cares. I hope you continue to help animals find a loving, humorous home!

PillsburyCodeBoy, we usually make it a family decision. Sometimes when an animal is brought into the home for one particular person, they get to name it.

Dovergirl61, I don't blog for others enjoyment, I blog because that's what's on my mind at the time. For the most part, that is the general feel I get from most of the blogs I read.

We had a cat leave us a litter of kittens some years ago. Now I am good at telling a male from a female person and just as good with a dog but when it comes to kittens I fail miserably. We found homes for 5 of the kittens but keep what I thought were two females. One was as nice a cat as you could want and ended up with the name “Ben-Her” as my stepdaughter would kid me about the cat that had been a “her” from my way of telling. The other was a nice yellow tiger who would like to ride in my pocket with its head sticking out so since I thought it also was female it got the name “Patience” due to how easy going it was. After I found out that male cats plumbing looks like female dogs when the cat is still a kitten I felt dumber than usual. I presently have a sexless cat (neutered ex-male, ouch, that hurts just thinking about it) that adopted me one cold January day and a female Cocker Spaniel that thinks it is a cat as it has lived with my cat since it was 6 weeks old. She will lick and clean herself just like the cat even licking her paws and wiping her face. She is a good dog that at times gets upset with me for all the junk mail in her email address. She puts up with it as I hand out the doggy treats and yes she really has her own email address that I use when I need to give an email address to some company on the internet. It’s interesting how some of the email will come from company’s I never heard of and how she now gets snail mail here also.
