  • My cats are named Chuck Norris and Xena. I prefer human names over "animal" names- but it gets akward when you meet someone with your pets name...

  • We have a dog named Brandy. It's kinda funny, we got her back in 2003. In 2005, we made friends with a girl at a bar who's name was Brandy. The first time she came to our house and met our dogs, she said she panicked a bit because of our dog's name. She thought we had actually named the dog after her. Something along the lines of "this is our dog. Her name used to be Fluffy, but we recently decided to call her Brandy..." LOL, I still tease her about that to this day.

  • Currently we don't have any animals, but when we do have animals we don't give them 'human' names.
