Cool Pet Names / Stumpy-Joe!

Today I am working on Stumpy-Joe and a few other projects. When this adorable bulldog project came in I just laughed out loud. What a name!

I started thinking about a handful of the cool pet names we have seen over the years.

I'll list just a few here:

Bogey
Jean Clawed
Zaxby
Xena
Izzy
Tonka & Tini
Sirloin Theodore of Pugsylvania
Artimus
Kharisma
Ding-A-Ling
Kung Fu Fu

My own personal history of pets and names:
Juno ( white kitty of my teen years )
Demos & Phoebos ( 2 black kitties from college ...lived a long time)
Atticus ( First Scottie, husband named this special pup)
Nessie ( 2nd Scott ... I named this sweet girl)
Ajax ( 3rd Scott ... named with husband)
Big Tommy ( 4rth Scott name slightly adjusted from adoption ...we added the "Big")
Pixel ( 5th Scott ... I named her, but it did not take ...we call her Picky or Pickle)

Hi Katy!
Thanks for stopping by. Stumpy-Joe was pretty easy ...the original photos was flawless and that makes a big difference in the quality of the portrait.

Hey Manon-
Thanks for dropping by and thanks for the praise. I do sort of have a soft spot for Bulldogs and I have found that their owners often get very creative with the name game.
