Her eye is on the Milk-Bone; or, a hundred names for “dog”

The new addition to the page sidebar answers to quite a few names, but one hundred is a gross exaggeration. As for her actual name, she was a rescue adoption and it came along with her. She is known as:

Gypsy
Miss Gypsy
Gypsy-Girl
Puppy-Girl (she’s almost ten)
Gypsy Rose
Gypsy Belle (she’s from Memphis, after all)
Puppy-Face (by her grandma)
Funny-Girl
Funny Face
Funny-Pup
Pupster
Fuzzybutt
Princess Fuzzybutt
Whatserbutt
The Critter
Most Beautiful (I am not objective)
Miss Thing
Doofus
Dingus
Dingleberry
Nimrod

She’s cute (and knows it), she’s smart (but not always, hence the last four names), she was my loyal companion and roommate during my single years, and even by dog standards, she has some seriously bad breath.
