  • the most elaberate name i have ever given a pet was a hamster i had many many years ago and his name was adhamski wilderbeast p :D

  • Two dogs - Dylan and Squid
    Four chinchillas - Billy, Lola, Roxy and Joey
    Five rats - Charlie, Bertie, Freddie, Marge and Lisa
    A hamster - Richard Hammond II
    Two chickens - Morticia and Wednesday
    And a horse named Juno (even though he's a boy - but I didn't name him, he had that name when I got him, cos he was born in June. And tis bad luck to change a horses name, you know) :)

    Most unusual name i've ever given a pet - hmm, well I once had four rats and I wanted to give them all B names, so I named them Broady, Brandy, Bailey, then I couldn't think of another so I named the fourth one Mambo Number 5 :D And I had a rabbit named Senor Hooby Quiche :) Oh, and a rat named Satan, but he already had that name when I got him :)

    I've been tripping from sipping the dripping dirty water tap,
    i've been thinking i'm drinking too many drinks all by myself.
    I've been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made, for you, of you.

  • I got a spaniel collie cross who has several names... Samuel, Sammy, Samsam and Spannerdog (when he's in his natural habitat of guarding everyone in an outdoors environment he will only respond to Spanner lol ) Charlie and I chose his name by putting five names each into a hat and we decided that we'd pull out names until we pulled one we both liked... When we pulled out Samuel we realised it went nicely with Spaniel (which we also found hilarious) the spanner came from my ex and aerisje's fella who decided that he should be called Spanner and it stuck rather well :D


    I also got a Jack Russel cross Border Terrier who is called Gizmo, Gizzy, Giz - he was called Gizmo when he came to live with me but we have added to that so his full name is Fizzy Wizzy Gizmo the Terrier Terrorist.
