It has been called to my attention by both my husband and Holly that Honor should have been listed as one of Bug's names. It is true, I am sorry!
More Nicknames - John and I discovered something funny when we were doing this. Most of my older dogs had at least one or two nicknames - most of his older dogs had none. Very odd.
1st birthday gift. He was meant to double as a hunting companion for my dad. However he was gun-shy!
Gus, Angus McTavish McDougal McDuff, Angey
Toby, German Shepherd
Was about 4 when I was born.
Max, German Shepherd
Rescued from the streets when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade - he was running loose and I saw him get hit by a truck. He broke his fore leg and his hip. He still had the stitches from his neutering. Vet suspected someone stole him to backyard breed and then dumped him when they realized he was neutered. He was white and gorgeous.
Maxwell House, Max-a-Million, Maxi-pad (neighborhood boys)
Sam, Lab/Shepherd mix
Picked her out as a puppy. Accidental backyard breeding. No clue if we even paid $$ for her.
Samantha, Sam Bass (he was a bank robber that met his fate in Round Rock, Tx where I grew up. His grave was in the graveyard behind my Nana's house), Sambo (my Nana not being very PC)
Cinder Block, Border Collie mix
Giant blue merle border collie mix. Wish they had those dna tests when she was still alive. My bro picked her out at a shelter in Salem, MA.
