I stumbled onto graphic designer Aaron Draplin's blog/site, draplin, a little while back. I think I discovered him through these cool little Field Guide notebooks he made, of which I can't find anymore of and aren't listed on his site. Oh well. Regardless, in checking out his site, I discovered his undying love for his dog, Gary. And a particular favorite aspect of Gary on the site, is the list of all of Gary's aliases. So good! I want to copy this. Bear with me dear reader, because I can't help myself. I need to do the same thing for Ruppert. DPK is notorious for coming up with silly nicknames for the dogs and they are now an ongoing narrative within our household. Of this, I apologize for in advance.
Ruppert. Ruppert Sir Poops Alot (he really does for such a small guy). Ruppert Sir Lick Toes of Poops Alot. Sir Poops. Rupperto. Ru-pear-toes. Schmumerto. Smooth Pear Toes. Rupperto, mumerto, schmumerto, bawerto, guerto, duerto. Schmu. Goo. Boo. Boo boo. Slug. The sponge of love. The chunk of love. Love bug. Le cochon d'amour. The snuffler. Little boy. Baby boy. Old man. Buddy. Poo. Poops. Poopers. Poopert. Schmoop. Schmupert and of course, when in a pinch, Ruppert.
There. Now that's out of my system. Thanks for the indulgence.
