We can talk about them behind their backs

Buddy, Adam’s dog, is a lot younger and, although he’s also a Jack Russell, is a lot bigger than The Ginger Kid, or Trevor, which are names we’ve given Stompie so we can talk about him without him knowing we’re doing so. Buddy is quite highly strung and easily spooked and somehow it seemed quite natural to call him Alan when we’re talking about him behind his back.

Gary, a massive black and white neutered Tom, who believes himself to be superior to all other life forms, has a variety of nicknames but my favourite, by far, is Filthy Farquhar
