Most animal companions have at least one nickname; many have several. One of my favorites was a horse whose name was Mac, which turned into Mac and Cheese, which ultimately became Noodles. How could you not love a horse named Noodles?!
Animals love the names we give them; they are filled to the brim with our loving energy. Just notice the feelings in your heart-center when you call your animal friend by one of their nicknames. There is a distinctive, warm feeling which fills your chest and flows outward….filling the heart center of your favorite buddy.
It is this wonderful sense of love and affection that our animals respond to most. The names we use are important….but it is the intent and energy behind these terms of endearment which speak louder than words.
