I'm Max, Dammit

She keeps calling me "Buddy." I am not a Buddy. Nor a Bud. I will answer to Big Guy or Mister Max, but not Buddy.

And tonight? Tonight she walks through the door and is all, "Hey, Buddy," and acts like I'm supposed to be glad she's home AND calling me by someone else's name.

I tell you what, I would have totally ignored her and turned around and walked away if not for the chunk of real live fresh dead cow she had for me.

For steak, I'll play along for a few seconds.

But as soon as I'd had my steak...doods, I turned my back on her.

Buddy, my asterisk.

You know, I rarely get called anything but Chey. Gemini and Ichiro have a hundred nicknames but me, I'm Chey. I'm not sure if I should be insulted or if I should be proud...

Uh-oh, there's not telling what Princeton thinks his name is! MOL!

Ollie thinks his name is 'Oh For Christ's Sake you GOON!" *i'm not kidding. He even looks up when she gets to the word Goon. It could be worse Max.

I hear you, man. I am on week 4 of being called Bruce. And the usual Turkey Butt, Baby Boy, etc. I guess it doesn't matter. I don't answer to any of it.


Binga thinks her name is Bad Girl! Which is really kind of true.

Let me tell you, some days it is hard to keep up with what we are supposed to respond to. Huggy Bear gets Buddy all the time. I get Jazz, Jazzy, J-Purr McFluffystuff, Stinker (don't understand that one at all)... It can be very confusing.

You know why we call Gracie 'Pee'? Because it's the only name she answers to. Why? Because my mom started it. And now Pee has no idea who this Gracie creature is.

Stand your ground, bud--er, I mean Max.

I would like it if the mom called me "Buddy". Nope, she calls me "POOSIE" - Miles

Around here it is "my little buddy" but usually we get our real names.

Max! Nowadays I'm "Oh dear Dio" and my brother is "What the hell Charles."

Have you heard the Cheryl Crow song, "All I wanna do is have some fun"? I don't know if that's the right name. Anyway, there's a line in it where she sings about a guy named Will or Bill or Mack or Buddy. You just reminded me of this song. MY human likes the song. Me? Meh.

we think Buddy is better than 'Kirby you butt head' Or Kirby you little Sh**'

You are so sweet. I don't answer to any name, food or incentive!!!

Hey, dood, I would have answered to Buddy immediately for steak. Or anything else edible.


Max, we don't blame you one bit for being p*ssed. But it's hard to turn down steak.

me is absolutely sure Kozmo has no idea what that his name is Kozmo! He gets called so many other things


Look at it like this: it could be worse. The Woman could call you by the same 'cutesie' names she does Buddah. How would you feel about that?


Bah. First time I get called sweetiepie, I'm pooping on a pillow...
