My sister lives in Georgia and is coming to town next week for my graduation. She's excited to meet Bandit, and we're excited for her to meet him. She asked us a couple of months after we got Bandit if we had any nicknames for him. At that time we didn't, with the reason being we were still getting him used to his true name. However, he has had a nickname for quite a while now. Don't ask me where it came from or why it became his nickname. There's no rhyme or reason to it. We're not even sure who in the family started it.
We call him Toot. Kathy, you've been warned.
We mostly call him Toot, but other variations are often used: Tootie-Toot, Tootie, and Toot-Toot. We often joke that Bandit doesn't want to be called by his nickname in public.
Does anyone else out there in blogger land have silly, weird, funny, or sickeningly sweet nicknames for their pets? It's time to share. ☺
