    Re: For animal lovers

    Peanut is a cute name and I picked it because it just popped in my head right after we got him from out of nowhere and I thought it was a perfect name for him, well my husband wasn't crazy about it and kept trying to name "HIM" at the time other things but we just sort of kept going back to Peanut so it stuck but after we realized she was a female then he really didn't like the name and by then we knew her personality more and she reminds us of Nala from The Lion King (and yes I'm aware that she was a cat haha) At first I just didn't want to change her name so as to not confuse her but she isn't even 6 mos so after reading posts on here and elsewhere online I too think it will be okay to change it, in fact she already seems to respond to it pretty well, so she is now Nala but she'll still always be my little peanut Also, I am so relieved to know 'someone' else has had a little gender confusion before

Both dogs responded to their new names within a day. I just repeated their name a lot in a happy voice, and praised them when they would look at me.

    And I think Peanut is a cute name for a boy or girl.
    Thank you for this tip - I will do this also!

    All of my gurls have more than one name, and they know each of them. Why keep it simple when I can't even keep it straight? I'm like a mother with a slew of kids....I call each name until I finally land on the right one! I think Dez is the only one who doesn't have a nickname. Miss Sashay's nickname is "Bay" (for 'Baby'); Miss Chloe's nickname is "Ink-a-doodle" or "Dink-Dink" or "Dinka"; and Miss Celie's nickname is "Celie Guacamole"...don't ask me why.

    Roxie is aka Pugsley, Pug Bug, or just Bug. My son just got a dog and they named him Rocky, so consider how confusing that is when he is here with Rocky and we have Roxie.

    When I was little I got a kitten and I named "her" Tammy. (After the "Tammy" movies back in the 60's. Anyone remember them?) Well, a few weeks later the neighbor was over and commented on how our Tammy was actually a "Tommy", so that became his name. He didn't seem to mind either name though, as long as dinner wasn't late.

    My grandparents had a big white fluffy kitty wander up to their house once and my sister and I called it , "Mr. Fluff". Well, "Mr Fluff" had kittens a few weeks later. So it was "Mrs. Fluff" after that.
