Once you choose a name, stick with it. How would you have reacted if your parents changed your name from William, to Alonzo when you were nine? The transition would have been difficult… and you are a lot further up the intelligence scale than your average house pet. Choose a name, vet it to be sure you like it, consider all the possible nickname variations your family might use, test those… then do a couple day trial run on the name. Also, we all want to name your animal something unique and cool like “Hans Christian Anderson Cooper”… but the reality is that pet is going to be called Cooper, Coop, Andy or Chris. It’s okay to make up your elaborate and cute name… but be honest with yourself and know that you’re not going to use that whopper of a name every day.
A name is a lifetime choice. We are sure your parents took more than a few minutes to choose your name. If it wasn’t a friend, relative, or someone close to them, do you know how they chose your name? Would you have picked a different name for yourself? Your pet deserves the same consideration. So take your time to search for a monumental moniker for your monkey, a special Sir name for your snake, something perfect for your parrot, dandy for your dog, wholesome for your horse, or crafty for your cat. Everyone will be glad you did!
What’s in a name?? We think we’ve proven it’s a bunch of Scarlet Letters put together in a tag that your pet, AND YOU, will carry for the remainder of their lives. Choose wisely, Grasshopper!
That’s all we have today from #FreddieSez Central. We hope everyone made it out of the 4th of July weekend with happy and healthy pets in place. With Labor Day only a stones throw away, we suggest you use lessons learned from the past weekend to prepare for the final summer blowout. In addition, don’t forget that summer brings the fleas but, if they get into your home, they are the gift that keeps on giving… your pet’s and you fits. Use fleas, tick and heartworm protection all year round to keep your fur kids safe and happy!
That’s all the news that is news from the Furry Hemingway for today. Feel free to peruse our library of Dog Blogs at our web home, it’s a ton of interesting topics and help materials for all of Freddie’s Friends. From all of us at Freddie Central we hope you have a happy, safe, and Pet Friendly week ahead! #FreddieSez
