    I was three when my parents got me a puppy. I named him Bozo because I loved The Bozo Show. He was a real clown, too, and a good dog.

    Friday. Guess what day we bought her on. Unimaginative but fun. She was a great dog.

    I named my hamster Hehe (like the laughing sound) for no apparent reason. I was 4 so who knows why!

    William Rockwell Burmaster. My mother liked the name. Honestly, I have no clue why. But we called him Willie the dachshund.

    I was in Kindergarten and when I came out from school, my dad was waiting for me.  Very unusual as he worked all day and quite a ways from home.

    He had gotten me a kitten and was so excited about giving it to me, he came home from work.  He even built a bed for the kitten. I think my dad was more thrilled than I was.  It's a fun memory.

      Well I see I did not answer the question correctly.  The cat's name was Booty because his 4 feet were white and it looked like he was wearing boots.

    Snuggles the hamster. It was a cute and cuddly creature that was warm fuzzy.

    When I was born, we already had a cat named Goldie, named by my mother. I did not get my own official pet until my sister and I got our own apartment when I was 16. We rented an apartment (sublet) from a young couple who could not take their kitten with them. They had named her Zootitoad, pronounced zoo-ti-toad. Just like it is spelled. We adopted her and we did not bother to change her name because the name suited her. She was a wacky girl. She used to hide under our sofa bed and wait for us to walk by, run out sideways with her back up and attack our feet. She was just playing, but she looked sooooo funny! And she was a bit of a tramp because when we moved back home, she got busy with all the neighborhood boys and had 3 or 4 huge litters of kittens. Bad little girl. Awesome pet. Lots of fun!

    My parents had a cat when I was born called "Cutie" - pronouced "Cooty"....like "naw what a cutie" in baby speak...he was a bit of a spoon. 
    He liked to sunbathe on his back, and unfortunately had a pink nose, so ended up in his old age having cancer in his nose (and most of his face) which I think eventually lead to his demise.
    He was cool.  I've had some other pets with odd names though - Turbo (dog), Boof (Dog), Gunna (Cat), Booga (cat), KC (Cat - Kirsty's Cat even hence the name).  Now have...Summin and Nuffin (Cats), Finn and Sam (dogs), and until recently "Ferlizardy" - Water dragon.
