When Jaime from Design Milk asked if I’d like to do an interview about Bruno and Fritz for her design-y dog blog Dog Milk, I couldn’t say YES fast enough! Evan and I both love talking about our furry little guys. Make sure you hop over to Dog Milk and take a look—I think it’s a fun read!
(Needless to say, we’ve since remembered a dozen or so additional nicknames that we left off of the list. And yes, we really do use them all! It’s a wonder either dog even knows his actual name.)
Thank you so much, Jaime!
Oh boy… Am I first?? 🙂
That was a seriously cute article. I was cracking up. Those are two lucky dogs. 😉
Funniest Scoop interview ever.
such a great article on you & your babies! pets are the most wonderful thing in the world & hearing the silly (great) nicknames for yours makes me miss mine at home! also, love the pic of you, fritz, and bruno!
Especially ‘He also does a wicked post-poop dance’ and ‘Or a peanut.’
Peanuts are animals, right?
The cutest kind.
One time I tried to make a tree diagram of all the nicknames for my dog Jolly because most of them are forms of each other (like Jay/JJ, Bubba/Bub, Butthead/Butt, etc) and there were about 40 in all. And reading your lists, I realized my nicknames aren’t crazy at all! 😉 hehe
uh. these dogs are darling. i love bruno’s haircut. tooooo cute!
If I fully admitted exactly how much I enjoyed this interview, you’d probably be concerned I was about to turn into a crazy stalker lady (hee!). So I will leave it by just saying that this was adorable, and that I’ve always believed that you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat animals. 🙂
haha! I know what you mean – my poor Westie has a zillion nicknames. Sometimes she just looks at me like “really, mamma, is this what we’re doing now?”
Very funny article. I had a good laugh I’m glad I’m not the only one who spoils my “kids”! 🙂
Your dogs are just too cute.
I really liked your description of favourit toy: He treats them like they’re his babies and then he eats their brains.
My dog has a fetish for those same unstuffed animals. (or roadkillstuffies as we call them) He sucks out what little stuffing there is in the head, and does nothing other than play with the rest.
Heading over to the article now, but I’ve gotta say that is a WONDERFUL picture of you & the pups!
Hi-larious article. Lucky dogs.
I read this last night and couldn’t stop laughing.
This is so funny! I love it. The nicknames are hilarious and they share a couple of them with my dog. And we also have a favorite toy called Blue Thing!
I have the best cats in the entire world but you sure have the best doggies 🙂
Oh Anna! This was just the best interview ever. Your dogs (and especially you and Evan’s love for them) is just so awesome to see. I second Benita’s comment about (my) cats, but it was so great to read that other people have just as many nicknames and dote on their furry family members as I do (and I have kids!) Whenever someone watches our kitties (it’s our son!) I’m always running around saying now they like this, they don’t like that, here’s their favorite toy but only give it to them at this time, etc. , etc. Yes, rereading that I sound insane…but it was just refreshing to read that you all have that much love for your “furry peeps” as I do! 🙂
Best Pic Ever with nose lick
