What iz it with our hoominz an’niknamez fer us? We Beaglebratz haf enkwirin’ mindz an’we want tu no! We thought we red where anuther 1 of us 4-leggerz asked ‘bout this tu.
Fer example, me – Shiloh – sumtimez mom will call me Shi-boy. Now I object tu this – there iz nuthin ‘bout me that sez I am shi. Anuther name mom uzez sumtimez iz SnuggleBuddy. Ok – so may-b that 1 iz tru – SUMTIMEZ. But tu say it outloud – I’ve got a reputatshun tu uphold. What kind of fear duz that put in them little furry kritterz if they hear that, huh? An then I will also talk about anuther that mom uzez fer both me’n Shasta – Dooglez. She sez she made that up meaning a mix of dogz an’Beaglez. Now I, Shiloh, must STRONGLY OBJECT tu this nickname ‘cuz there is absolutely nuthin that iz mixed with me or Shasta Don’t git me wrong, mixez r a really grate thing – my best bud b-4 Shasta wuz a mix – my little “big” bruther Oreo who mom had when I moved in. But me’n Shasta r not mixez an’we haf paperz that say we ain’t, so there!
Shasta: Ok Shiloh, my turn now. How wood u like tu b called baby girl when u r 3 yearz old. Or niknamez like squirtbutt or wigglebutt? Ok – may-b my butt duz wiggle a little – OK, A LOT sumtimez! But kin I help it if I git really happy, hmmm? That’z like tellin’ a hound not tu howl when she seez a wabbit. But squirtbutt – where’d that come frum – my butt don’t squirt – never haz.
So u all kin see what we haft u endure sumtimez – what’s a poor doggy to du?
