Well, I did say in my last post that Mister Orange Dog, or Mister if I can't be bothered to type out his full 'name,' was busy picking his own pseudonym for the purpose of being referred to in the blog.
Now, at the time, this seemed like a perfectly sensible thing to do, let the gent choose his own name...what could possibly go wrong? It was after all a simple task, dare I say, a safe task with which to entrust to him, particularly given that he is really rather creative. He's also very competitive so I was very confident that he was going to come up with something completely brilliant.
And this is what he came up with; actually, let me just share how the text messages went, just so you get an idea of Mister Orange Dog's sense of humour...
Me: You need to sort your name out Mr. Orange Dog.
Him : Mr. Top Dog!
Me: That's verging on rude lol
Okay, I'm sorry, but I need to heavily edit this, as you can probably work our for yourself what some of his responses were and I am a little on the prudish side when it comes to putting things in writing, I don't know why, I just am; I like to think of it as an endearing quality. Anyway...
Him: Mr. Dirty Dog
Me: Um yes?
Him: Mr. Big Dog! I like
Him: Mr. Hot Dog
Me: Mr Big Dog? Perhaps we should revert to Mr. Top Dog or Mr TD
(Did you see how I ignored the Mr. Hot Dog comment with a distracion?)
Another naughty name suggestion, which I cannot possibly share with you as I would most certainly blush, then...
Him: Dr. Top Dog
Fair enough, I will allow him the promotion since he does indeed have the title of Doctor.
Finally we're sorted and it's time for me to go to bed before I turn into a pumpkin (I need my sleep and preferably lots of it). I send a goodnight text and get back a reply from Dr. Big Dog!
Now I am willing to compromise on this one even though it's verging on naughty. In some respects it makes sense given that the blog is Little Orange Dog and we refer to Mister as Little Orange Dog's (human owner) dad. Therefore I declare it acceptable. Also, prudish as I may be of the written word, let's be honest and say we all enjoy a little double entendre every now and then ;-)
So there we have it. My other half is (for the purpose of blogging), Dr. Big Dog!
