OK, so I’m going to veer off from some of my regular postings about my health, I’m sure you are all tired of hearing about that anyway. Besides, I feel good and I don’t really have another appointment that will mean anything until June
I got to thinking about some of my favorite pets and what I decided to name them. I think most kids come up with the normal kind of names, but I wanted to see how mine compared to everyone else’s. I’m going to list the names of all (or at least those that I can remember) from my childhood
The first pets I remember were a pair of hamsters. We had two and I got to name one and my sister named one. I named mine Candy and she named hers Peanut. Yes, Candy was large and Peanut was small and I do mean fat and skinny. After that I had a series of guinea pigs. I only remember two of their names: Cinnamon was first and then my favorite was named Black Magic (I had no idea what Black magic was, I just loved this little black guinea pig and thought he was magic). Apparently my mom let me ride around with, I think it was Cinnamon, in my bike basket, which I can’t believe, but she tells me I did this. I know I had hermit crabs, but I don’t remember their names. I named our second dog, Snickers… I think I had a thing about food. I don’t think I named any of our other pets, but my sister had a parakeet named Nipper who was not very nice and we had Paco (his name was supposed to be Pogo, but my mom kept calling him Paco) a terrier mix and now my parents have a dog named Sadie
Since then I’ve had some betta fish I’ve named: Rox, Abacus, Percy, Montenegro(Monty), Luna and Carl was an albino cherry barb. What’s in a name? Do you have favorite memories of your favorite pets or at least favorite names of your pets? What are they?
