How do you refer to yourself or prefer to be referred to in terms of your position as a dog 'guardian'? Likewise other way around - how do you like your dogs called? furbabies, baby, daughter, son etc or simply just dog? I hear alot of 'mommy/daddy' around these parts - a select few older folks prefer owner/master/companion. I myself for all intents and purposes refer to myself as Katalin's companion/owner - occasionally as 'mommy' though. But she's always just been "the dog". I'm pretty much constantly called her mommy though and she's been called my daughter on more than one occasion - I'm pretty indifferent to both *shrugs*. My brother calls us the bitch team though lol - that's the most accurate out of everything.
