Our animal names!

This part of the article is about our own animal names and back story. Enjoy!

Hanu our Golden Retriever mix

Boy dog names

He was a Golden Retriever mix (found as a puppy, abandoned in our neighborhood along with his siblings at around 3 months old) “Hanu”, pronounced “HAH-noo” after the Hindu deity Hanuman, known for his intense loyalty.

Hanu was awesome! Friendly to everyone, funny, happy, responsive… but his Achilles heel was loving to chase animals in our woods. We had an electric fence and one day when we were gone, he appears to have run the fence.

It was also a day when we hadn’t put on his fence collar because he had been doing so well. It had to be something majorly exciting for him to bolt the fence, with or without his collar.

He was likely chasing deer or lured by a pack of dogs that had been roaming the woods. We never found him. Our hearts ached for his fate and not knowing what happened to him.

Our deaf cat Priya

Boy dog names
Priya our deaf cat

Priya – Hindu for Pretty, my sister was adopted from India, so my mom was looking for Indian names. She was an all-white cat with blue eyes and was deaf as a doornail. Apparently, the majority of pure white cats with blue eyes are deaf.

One night on the way home from an event, my parents had stopped to get gas. My mom was sitting in the car waiting. When my dad opened up the door and dropped a kitten on her lap. The kitten was just feet away from a busy highway. My dad couldn’t bear its inevitable fate if he did nothing, so that night we had a new kitty.

On the way home it was remarkable how friendly and unafraid the kitty was. At that time we didn’t know the statistics on deafness in white cats. But after the first few hours at home, my parents suspected it, and sure enough, Priya was stone deaf.

Priya went on to live all nine lives and possibly even more on an adventurous life with us. Priya had met every new dog by walking up to them and slapping them in the face several times and then walked off tail up in the air.

The world is more dangerous to deaf cats and Priya had enough adventures and mishaps to account for around eight of her “nine lives”. Until that last awful day when it appears she was attacked by a dog or coyote in the night.

We found her the next day. Tragically sad, but the only good thing was that she was an old lady and had lived a long and very well-loved life.

Onyx our Doberman Labrador mix

The Doberman Lab mix
Onyx our Doberman Labrador mix. Found at a park, he was skin and bones when we took him in.

Onyx – a black lab mix; found abandoned and starving at a local park at about 6 months old; was the BEST DOG EVER! Noble, loyal, faithful, gentle, attentive, obedient, ever so eager to please…

Boy how we miss him! Hanu was Onyx’s hero, but he didn’t follow him into the woods on that fateful day. Once Onyx found home with us, he was always afraid of leaving. But once Hanu was gone Onyx was very depressed for over a month.

So we knew we needed to get Onyx a dog. It took a while but eventually, we did get him a dog.

Zoya is a King Charles Cavalier, and when Zoya first arrived Onyx took one look at the sweet puppy and then at us huffed and walked outside.

Onyx eventually got used to Zoya and even grew to like her, grooming her ears and being her big protector. Onyx lived to a ripe old age of 13 before we finally had to release him due to some hip issues.

Zoya our King Charles Cavalier

Boy dog names

So my grandmother, (now in her late 80’s and living next door,) has always had a fancy for the King Charles Cavalier Spaniels. We’d never heard of them so we checked them out and while it wasn’t the best kind of playmate for Onyx since he was middle-aged by now, he didn’t play as much so that would be okay.

But our lives were getting increasingly busier with new business endeavors, so we knew it needed to be a smaller, more docile breed, and after the loss of Hanu, not one so likely to bolt the fence chasing a deer or pack of dogs.

So, we got ‘miss prissy’ a Cavi named Zoya, which is a Russian name meaning “Life”. The equivalent of the more common “Zoe”. (I was adopted from Russia and became an American at the age of 2.).

Prince Caspian our Maltese

Boy dog names

Caspian – Prince Caspian to be exact. Caspian is my sister’s first ‘very own’ dog and he’s a purebred Maltese. Since the Maltese breed comes from royalty, and we’re avid fiction fans and readers and writers, plus love the C.S. Lewis books and Narnia movies.

Caspian was a perfect name. It also tied in with the name “Casper the Friendly Ghost”… a cartoon my parents watched when they were little. His nickname is Caspi and he definitely thinks he’s a prince of the house and everyone in it, trotting around in his “kingdom”. Bossing around the cat, Zoya and everyone else in it.

Mystique my black cat

Boy dog names

Mystique aka the Putinator– Then came this black cat. I was spending a lot of time working outside gardening in our yard and also in property management around our home and for neighbors a few years ago. I started noticing this black kitten lurking around.

Both our neighbors were leaving food out for Mystique. Mystique was sitting at the door of a neighbors house. When I saw her, I called out “Here kitty!” not expecting anything but a flick of the tail. I went back to get the mail out of the mailbox.

Boy dog names
Mystique sitting on my lap. She had exclusive rights to him before Zeus, but she’s adjusted nicely. She looks demented here but she that is only because I was holding her against her will.

I looked up to see Mystique making her way to me, she was skin and bones. And she came up to sniffed my hands, and then meowed. I left after giving her a few scratches deciding to pick her up later that evening if she was still around.

Later that evening she was still sitting at the mailboxes and I managed to pick her up and bring her inside my house. Where the dogs went wild trying to smell her. That was October 6th, 2014 and she’s been my sweetheart kitty ever since.

My mom called her “Mystique” because she’s black, because of the mystery of her origins. And because we live in a subdivision with Mystic in the name.

Since then I call her all kinds of names, and she answers too all of them.

She appears to have been wild or lost for quite some time. If only she could tell us her story. She is an odd mix of skittish but affectionate. And to this day she won’t tolerate anyone but me holding her.

For the other family members she bearly tolerates them, allowing them a quick pat on the back or a slight chin rub before she whisks off. Tail up high and feet pounding the wooden floors.

By the way, Mystique had gotten used to Zeus. Allowing Zeus to sniff her and occasionally allows him to give her a quick lick with his big huge tongue.

Zeus my Labrottie!

Boy dog names

And then there’s… my beloved labrottie, Zeus!! And Zeus, as the Greek God of Thunder and Lightning, is a great dog name for big strong breed like Zeus is.

The story starts two days before my B-day, I had just come back home when my mother said they had a puppy under the deck. I raced outside and looked under there, sure enough, this big guy was crammed as far as he could go under the deck.

Long story short I eventually got him out and now he is a well adjusted Labrottie… Or is he a labrottie? You can read Zeus’ exciting adventure! And also read his DNA story as well!
