My cat is called Bubbles, not that it responds in anyway when you call it.

I remember reading that the most effective dog names for getting their attention are those of two syllables, with a an 'ee' sound at the end. Therefore I would look at losing the Tarquin and biscuitbarrel at least


For the record, our two dogs are Archie and Teddy

That actually works quite well as a dog's name, I think (and before anyone says owt, that's not a reference to our vice chair).

Following a family conference, and in line with Whitters' guidelines, it looks like it's going to be 'Alfie'. Or Alfred, when he needs to be reprimanded.

If you really were the boss of this forum, surely you would name the dog after a forumer.
Samba, Tomos and alf git, all great names for a dog.

Mushy sounds plain silly though.

Good choice - that was on our shortlist too before we went for Archie (or Archibald when being reprimanded....)

A mate of mine had a fearsome looking Rottweiler called Rodney,(this is true)
I always wanted to call him Dave but he really was fearsome. :) (this bit isn't)

I had an English Bull Terrier called Alfie. He was a nightmare. He ran into the Indian family's house next door and demolished half the food that was on their table. The family were petrified and had to bang on the front door for me to get him out as he'd gone into food hoover mode and wasn't taking any notice of anyone. Had the shits for days afterwards.

He was a great dog.

He used to nick underwear and sit, licking the gusset with his eyes rolling round in the back of his head while doing so he was enjoying it so much.

His farts could strip wallpaper.

I used to think he was deaf and took him to the vets several times but all tests came back clear. Apparently he was just ignorant.

He once ate a plastic cup.

He used to terrorise my mum when I went round. He'd charge upstairs and jump around on her bed for ages. Then fall asleep and snore and fart, in-between having very loud dreams about chasing stuff. Nobody could move him off the bed only me.

He got the absolute granny kicked out of him by next door's cat one afternoon.

He stole a half drunk can of lager once and drank the lot. he was drunk as a sack for the rest of the day and I'm sure he had a hangover the next morning. His turds were reminiscent of hot tar the next day.

I miss that dog. :cry:

I hope our Alf is slightly less exuberant than yours, GCRO.

Certainly sounds like a character... and I like the bit about scaring the shiiiet out of the neighbours.

I'd love to get another dog. The wife wants one too, but I've categorically ruled it out while the kids are young, as of course it will be yours truly walking it morning and night and cleaning up **** in the garden.

I can honestly say, if ever anybody mentions the word "fear" to me, I immediately think of them poor people's faces as they were knocking on my door to remove him from their kitchen table.
