Phantom on Friday and Fun Nicknames

Do you notice anything different?

Yesterday I had a day at the spa.  The nice lady groomer said I was a very good boy.  Everyone thinks she did a great job on me.  But I just wanted her to hurry and finish.

While I was at the groomer, Mom was just on the other side of the wall with Lightning.  He was getting checked out by the vet because he is just so skinny.  She said she could hear me wooing through the walls. That is because I knew she was there and thought for sure she would come rescue me.  But she didn't and I even heard her leave without me.  Thankfully she came back a few hours later and brought me home.  I was so relieved to get back to my bunker.  But only after my other three packmates gave me a thorough sniffing.  I sure hope they will be getting a turn to have a fun day at the spa too.

 Before I leave you for today, we are going to play The Nickname Game sponsored by none other than Blogville's Chief of Police SARGE.

Here are the rules from Sarge…
  1. Sometime between May 11th and end of the day on May 18th, create a post on your own blog where you list all of the nicknames you’ve been called by your peeps.
  2. Invite your furiends to comment with their own vote for his/her favorite of your nicknames.  For the following week, your peeps all have to call you ONLY BY YOUR WINNING NICKNAME!
  3. Leave a comment for me so that I know you pawticipated.
After the event ends, I will post a list showing all of the pawticipants and their winning nicknames.  All of the nicknames will be entered in a random drawing.  
AND YES THERE WILL BE PRIZES…LOTS OF GREAT PRIZES!   Two different packs of unstuffies, a mental stimulation stuffie, sets of furiendly cards, and kitty prize packs are all up for grabs.

 So here we go!

Phantom - Phanty, Phanny, Phanny Bananny, Shy Guy, Picky Boy, Skinny Boy, Mama's Boy, Mr. P., Old Man, and Blue Eyes.

Thunder -  Thunder Dunder, TD, Silly Boy, Mr. T., Handsome, Big Guy, Fuzzy Bear, Big Teddy, "Hey You", and Baby Blues.

Ciara - Ciara Bear, Pest #1, Princess, Baby Girl, Miss C.,  Prissy Sissy, Sweet Girl.

Lightning (I got two pics because I am so special -  Flash, Pest #2, Terror,  Streeeeeeeeeeeeetch, Whiner, Mr. L., Nighthawk, Mr. Chewy, The Woodman, and You-know-you-love-me-Mom's Boy.

So that's the nickname game from us. Just leave a comment with your favorite for each of us and we will be stuck with that name for a whole week!!!

Between my day at the spa and all this phototaking, I am beat.  Time for me to take the day off - Phantom.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
