The Complexities of Isabel, Part III

March 8, 2013

Isabel is my 6-year-old chihuahua. It’s hard for me to believe she’s already old enough to be a first grader, but she is. During her six years, she’s developed many, many nicknames. I should first mention that she has four real names:

Isabel “Izzy” Muffy R. S.


From that, we’ve come up with a few other more-creative names:

  • Iz
  • Iz-Monster
  • Itty Bitty
  • E.B.
  • Muffins
  • Iz-Muffins
  • Niddy
  • Chinky
  • Monster
  • Niddy Muffins
  • Niddy Stink
  • Nidabel
  • Mommy’s Baby
  • ChinkChink

The list could go on and on, but I’m sure you’ve noticed a reoccuring theme of Muffins. In light of this recent revelation, I’ve begun calling Travis “Papa Muffins.”


He hasn’t quite accepted the new nickname, but I’m sure he’ll get on board quickly enough. Izzy sure did.
