    DefaultDoes your dog offended when called by wrong name?

    I just noticed when I call ZsaZsa "Coco" by mistake, she makes funny face.
    CoCo looks at me funny too when I call her "ZsaZsa"
    Does yours do this too??

    They look at us like we're nuts if we call them the wrong names but usually do what we ask lol

    Mickey will respond to "Hey you!" if you have a few of his treats... : In fact, a pocketful of treats is the fastest way to keep his full attention.

    I'm not sure I've ever called them the others names, although I have lots of "nicknames" for both of them. I think it confuses them when I use the nicknames. One funny thing happens when I have them both doing "tricks for treats" in the morning after they come in from pottying - I give them commands at the same time and Emilu does what I want immedieatly. Skippy is sometimes a little slow, or breaks a command to "lay down". Emilu used to watch him and if he sat back up , she would too. Now she waits to see if I will correct him. Also - unless I either say her name, or says "dogs -sit", she won't do the command. She wants to see if I really mean her, or if this is a command for someone else (like the big ole dog sitting next to her!)

    We call Sally:

    Annie (all the time!)
    Heidi (son's boxer's name)
    Sally Sue (my pet name for her)
    chocolate drop (my other pet name for her)
    stinky (husband's pet name for her)

    And every once in a while, we actually call her Sally! She comes to all of them. It's a wonder she doesn't have multiple personality disorder!

    Sundance's name was originally Tyrone. Sometimes when I'm trying to get his attention and he's ignoring me, I'll yell "TYRONE!" He usually whips his head around and gives me the funniest look, like he's experiencing deja vu.
