LOL. I agree 100%. I had two cocker spaniels once (sorry to mention d*gs)
named Chuck and Mousse. Mousse was chocolate colored. I had to take him to
the vet once, and we were in the waiting room where they had these little
stalls you could sit in while waiting. They called my name, and I got up and
said (loudly enough for all to hear, unfortunately) "C'mon, Mousse; it's our
turn."


Everyone in the waiting room looked over to see what kind of huge, mongo dog
was going in for a checkup... why else would he be named "Moose"?


When he came around into view, in all his spaniel fluffiness and big-eared
cuteness, the room burst into laughter.


LOL, great story!

We had one poster with a cat named Vette. As in Corvette. That must
have been confusing at the vet's.

LOL - good one!

They would just have to refer to the vet as TED.

I once knew a cat called Trevor, I also knew one of her kittens.


LOL :-)))

My second cousin has a cat called Alan. Also second category, I feel!

One of the problems of fostering is dreaming up new names for litters of
kittens. One particularly long-term foster mum resorted to using
scientific names in desperation (been through herbs, spices, wildflowers
etc), and eventually reached virus families. I believe 'Rhabdo' and
'Adeno' were used but I did have to actively dissuade her from using
'Herpes' despite it being a 'perfectly valid scientific name', and "yes
it does sound Greek, but we do want the kittens to find homes!"

One can only assume that Vette went to the vet in a 'Vette.

Somehow, some human names seem appropriate for pets, like Sam, Ben et al.
Other seems strange, like Julie, Valerie, Stephanie, Vanessa, Stephen, John,

My friend had a Rottweiller called Valerie, ruined her street cred ;-)

The Jack Russell that played Eddie on "Frasier" was named Moose.
