Paws in peril

Our dog's name is Marlowe, named after Philip Marlowe of old time radio fame. Lauren chose the name Marlowe but you'll never hear her call him that. Instead she'll use one of the following:
meecie
pepper pants
rip
alamo
mhiskey
pony
d'meece
schtinkle
schotzie
skulpje
grimeldo
alamo
chakra
pigpen
boots
puddle
flame head
piggolo
mister smee
baby demille
micky boo
victrola
When Lauren's working, Marlowe prefers to lay under her desk and, like the carefree ward he is, often nuzzles up to chair casters. Lauren has to take extra care when getting up or moving at all really, to avoid crushing little Marlowe. Tonight I heard her exclaim, "Gawd Meecie, get your paws out of peril!"
