This Isn't Much of a Photo But.....

...It made me laugh and it reminds me of one of Jimmy's many nicknames....

At home, next to John's favorite TV chair is a dog bed. Both dogs vie for it, but when John is watching TV in that chair, Jimmy is sure to get the bed so he can be next to his favorite human. As part of sitting there, Jimmy demands that expects John to keep an arm over the side of the chair, touching him at all times. If John forgets (or his arm goes numb!), Jimmy pops straight up and pokes John's elbow to get the hand back. He will do it many times in a row until the hand returns. Yes, Jimmy can be a bossy little SOB......Anyway, this persistent hopping up and down earned Jimmy a nickname: in Pogo Stick .

When I saw this (somewhat out of focus) picture, I immediately thought of his Pogo nickname.....


How about your pups, any interesting nicknames?


  1. Real name: Ragamuffin (Rags)--because that's what he looked like when we found him, as a pup, chained to a tree. Nicknames: Muffin, Mr. Muffabino, head of the Muffabino Familia, Mr. Big, Goomy Coco Pop--a derivation of Gimme Gimme Coco Puffs, that 50s cereal ad (comes to Goomy). I think I've embarrassed myself enough.....

    1. Fay, Too funny! One of Jimmy's other nicknames is CocoPuff, because he truly is Coo-Coo for CocoPuffs! He LOVES that cereal!

  2. I love it. Finn looks at me when I stop rubbing her for any reason (including that I have been rubbing her for the past twenty doesn't matter how long). Have a super Saturday!

  3. Sam does that too - if you are sitting, he believes one hand should be in contact with him at all times.


  4. Jimmy demanding never! Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. I think its a lovely photo, action shots are the best

    urban hounds

  6. What a cute and appropriate nickname for Jimmy! Sometimes I wonder if pets should not be named until they display a certain trait. Pogo would've been a unique name for Jimmy, don't you think?
    My coon hound, Daisy, doesn't have a nickname yet but when I call her name in various tones and that seems to work for her.

  7. Howdy All, what a great photo and yes, it certainly fits. Our two have some nicknames, Stellie Bellie, "Give me those blxxdy socks", Smellie Stellie and Rory has Snory Rory, Little Man and "Stop licking that blxxdy bench". Funny how they respond to some and not others hehe. Hope your weekend has been great. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

  8. I love the nickname pogo! What a great shot too! Yes, our dogs have nicknames too, Freddie we call Mr. Dramatica and Gloria we call Gobble Guts Gloria! LOL!

  9. Great Photo :)
    Have a Good Week
    See Yea George xxx
