We can give our canines boring and predictable names like Spot and Buddy. Or sometimes we take inspiration from pop culture and name them after TV characters and pop stars. Some people get really creative and name their furry friends things like Theophilis Thistle and Peanut Wigglebutt. But who's to say our pets don't have names for us, too?

Your dog has sneaking suspicions about this human. She still remembers when mouth-open tongue licks were permitted and she watched very closely each time to make sure you weren't in danger. Now that you're friends again, Captain Gives-Me-Treats has returned...with even more treats! But your pet will never fully trust him again.

The dog thinks of a child as a miniature two-legger. Improbably sticky, and with an utter lack of self-control or coordination, this tiny, tot must be protected and cared for. Dogs must swallow their pride and allow this bizarrely sticky baby human to pull their ears, ride their back, and grab their face.

To a dog, there's no finer delicacy than post-exercise underpants that have been marinating in the hamper all week.
Now that you have an idea about what your dog would name you, maybe it's time to stop calling them Puppy Wuppy.
