    Lol, the only bad names I've called dogs are dumb dumb, mutt, stupid, and fatty.

    I think thats my reason for not calling them bad names. THEY don't know, but I do and it would just bother me.

    I see your point there. Though my friends and I call each other some rude things and it's all because we love each other, nobody ever means it seriously.

    About the worst thing Meg ever gets is MonkeyFace.

    I know a few people who use "mean" nicknames for their dogs, and even in fun, I think it just makes them sound ignorant and...detached, or something. Curse words or words with extremely hurtful meanings especially. It's not just about how the people who get what you mean perceive the name; it's also about the people who overhear and don't always know you are kidding.

    Haha Yup.. Same here Acamp! Actually, My last wall post from one of my best friends Consists of " Hey you dirty little Hoebag. " All in good fun.. My friends (guys and girls) call me a sl*t, Wh*re, Fag, B*tch all the time. I know I m non of those things, and I dont care, I call them that too.. Its really no big deal. Honestly, Alot of words That people consider racist or whatever, have lost all meaning.

    People, All over the world Call each other a certain "n" word. And Honestly, It means NOTHING to us..Alot of words seem to be loosing any sort of meaning these days.

    I wouldn't say I've called Sadie or Stella "bad names"...more just funny nicknames....

    Sadie, because she was around longer....had more of them:

    Fatty McPoops
    Fat Fanny Girl
    Stinky
    Stink-a-licious
    McPoops

    Stella....who we've only had a few months is often called:

    Naughty
    Wicked Little Monkey

    More often...it's good names....all in the same happy tone.....

    I would never call my pet a racial or gay slur.

    But I do call my biggest cat Princess Poofypants (I don't know where it came from :p ) and I regularly inform the other cat, Remy, that he has a big butt. (Or just "YOU HAVE A BUTT!") They love it!

    Of course I don't call Ollie any bad names !! This is funny though , when ElinHunter ( daughter Amy ) was about 13 she called me a Varmint when angry . Well my Mother was visiting and read to her from a dictionary the description of a Varmint . Fast forward 40 plus years .... she calls me Varmy or refers to me as The Varm ....so do her close friends and my son in law .... what started as a slap in the face , has over time become dear to my heart !

    We call Caesar "asshole" when he is one... like when he's rude lol. Maggie doesn't get called bad names. If she knew what it meant, I know she would be hurt. Caesar wouldn't tho lol.
