People Are Sharing How Their Pets’ Names Have Evolved And it’s Funny

Over on Twitter @mooseallain got people thinking about what they called their pets vs what they REALLY call their pets. These poor pets had no idea what they were getting into when they came home to their forever homes, and they might have thought twice if they knew what the names they would get would be. At least some of the names are pretty original, though some seem to repeat themselves.... How many people can call their dog or cat boo or booboo until its just too. much. But no matter how creative these pet owners were with their companions' names, it pales in comparison to these unfortunate names for people that definitely has some malice behind it.

Ever wondered where boxers got their name? Supposedly it comes from the breed's tendency to play by standing on its hind legs and "boxing" with its front paws.
