Bad Pet Names

Today’s Ping is late. Sorry.

We always hear about the names for pets when they’re good, but what about when they’re bad?

If you own a pet, you know that sometimes pets do stupid things. They might not be stupid, but they’ll just have momentary lapses of judgment. Earlier today for instance, our fine Beagle decided that it would be a good idea to take a piece of paper off of the table and eat it. This caused me to call him a jerk, which is my standard name for him when he does something bad.

The only thing worse? I have called him a “little shit.” Because he has been.

How about you – any bad pet names?

Annoy-bot is the most frequently used one. Also:

Madame Barfory

I swear I have a ton of affectionate names for her, too!
