Pet Names for Maya

Over the past 13 ½ years, I have collected a fair amount of nicknames for my dog, Maya. I baby talk and coo and make a big fool of myself over her.  Here’s just a few pet names that come to mind. 
  • Miss Maya
  • Maya Papaya
  • Me O Maya
  • Pretty Girl
  • Baby Girl
  • Baby Baby
  • Turkey Burger
  • Puppy Puppy
  • Pretty Pretty
  • My Donkey Dog
  • My Little Toad
  • Dragon Breath--meant with love, I assure you. 

And here are a few of my favorite greetings. 
  • Who’s the pretty girl?
  • Who’s the prettiest?
  • What’s up dog?

When Maya was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in November 2011, time suddenly became a precious commodity.  I have showered her with love, baby talk, sci-fi movies, steak, and pate (canned dog food).  The end is coming quickly, I fear.  So I’m making every word count to My Sweet Puppy Puppy!
