A nose by any other name...

A few months ago I noted that Tralfaz has been acquiring names like crazy. I'm amazed he has any idea what his actual name is.



Since then it's only gotten worse. Just in case you're keeping score at home, I thought I'd pass along some of the other nicknames that have come up. Bear in mind he's a gigantic eight-month-old dog---essentially he's a toddler with teenager hormones in the body of a lumbering, muscular 12-year-old, whose idea of fun involves grappling and mouthing.
