How Many Nicknames?

C'mere! Many pets are called – and respond to – a variety of names. From their full given names to official, registered ones, pets often have varied monikers. Sometimes animals get new names over time or based on certain behaviors and other times certain friends and family members bestow special nicknames on a pet.

I call my pup North most of the time, but my mom calls him Baby Tink (short for Stinky), my dad calls him Lil'boy, and friends call him Norte or Norfies. In fact, sometimes I even call him Bucket... and I haven't a clue why!
