Nominated for the #myhumanscallmechallenge by @muppet_called_cooper so here goes.
When I came home with mom, she wasn't actually ready for me. I was supposed to to go home with some other humans but they went on vacation so the breeder called and asked if mom wanted the most annoying puppy from the litter she met the month before. She was like, "Um. Okay!" #waaaat
She had originally planned to give me an old man name like Henry or Carl but then she realized that was not going to work at all because I'm a happy pup outdoors and a grumpy clown at home. So I was "puppy" and "pup-pup" for my first week at home while she tried on names. There was a whole series of nicknames I refused to respond to like "monkey bubbles" because even an 8 week old pup has to have his dognity.
When she realized I was a Beaker, I became:
Muppet (because obviously)
As you can see, she's not exactly a creative genius! Beaker bear is probably my favourite because there's a song that goes with it. But I will respond to the others provided she has something I want. Speed of response is directly proportional to the degree of animalness she is holding (ie slowest for carrots, fastest for steak). So you guys wanna hear the song or what?
To the tune of Spider Pig... Beaker bear, Beaker bear,
Does whatever a Beaker bear does.
Can he poop?
Yes he can
Twice a walk
He is the Beaker bear!
