I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my beloved, late dogs – Holly and Shilo. Long time readers will know my girls were my everything and it’s been so hard since they crossed rainbow bridge. While musing on them, I started thinking about all the names we called them.
Now, I’m not sure if this is something peculiar to hubby and me, but we had over a hundred names we used when “talking” to our girls. Most names have meanings and were born out of hilarious situations, but some are just sweet ‘pet’ names… nonetheless, all the following names meant ‘dear heart’ to us and I miss having these names on my lips each and every moment of the day.
Shilo came to us as Tatiana, but quickly became Shilo in homage to the Neil Diamond song. Then came her aliases and nicknames…
Princess Rose Petal
Bubble o’ love
Monster dog from Hell
Bitch queen from Hell
Hound dog from Hell
Lady Muck Muck
Monkey pup from Hell
Holly came to us as Black Holly which suited her so well we had to stick with it. Plus, Holly Holy for all those Neil Diamond families out there. Then came her aliases and nicknames…
Black bear o’love
Belly on legs
Remorseless Eatin’ Machine
And this is my tribute to my two girls, who, by any name, were the loves of my life.
