A dog by any other name




Over Christmas my parents got a new puppy. I'd post a picture of him if I had one. But I don't. So I posted a picture of a completely different puppy instead. We named him "Pippin," ostensibly after the character from Lord of the Rings but really because my mother always used to refer to our first dog as "Such a little pip."

Because we got a new dog I spent most of the weekend trying to establish the various nicknames by which he will be known for the rest of his life. So far I've got:

Pip
Pipster
Pipmeister
Pippy
Pippi Long-stocking
Pip of the Iceberg
Pippirino
Pipperoni
Pipperoni and Cheese
Poop AND/OR Poopin'

If you can think of any others, feel free to drop a comment.
