Pronunciation: pet own ya

Sentence: Petula's new poodle puppy was called Petunia. She was a purebred pooch and a pretentious poseur. Petula attended her every need and was worse than a Stage Mother when managing Petunia's daily life. However, Petula was suffering from a new malaise called petownia...where your every living moment is devoted to the feeding, comfort and care of an animal pet. When Petula's friend, Peter saw her pushing Petunia's perambulator, he paused and posed the probing question, "Why are you pushing her in a stroller?" When Petula's implausible retort came, Peter had one main thought. "Who would an alien assume was the leader on our planet? The pooch, or the person picking up her poo?" Unless he was from anywhere but Pluto...he could only assume it was the pets who were in charge!

Etymology: Pet (a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement) & Own (have ownership or possession of) & Ya (you) & Wordplay on Petunia (flower with numerous fluted petals; smells sweet and very hardy)

Pronunciation: best in sho yu

Sentence: When Margie ran around with her Poodle, Xaviera, in her customized stroller for poodles, everyone wondered who obeyed who? That dog had more outfits and toys than the most spoiled child and everyone knew that Margie waited upon Xaviera like a devoted slave. Everyone figured that she herself had gotten the BestinShowYou Trophy, because she did everything for that dog. Do you think that if Aliens landed here they would think that the Humans were not in charge, but just the dogs. But how does one explain the fact that if we are so smart, why are we running around picking up the Dogs' poop and lovingly carrying it home, like a treasure in a plastic bag...??? Who is actually in charge???

Pronunciation: FALL-ee-COD-uhl (follycoddler,follycoddled)

Sentence: Mad Shirley lived in an unheated garage with her two poorly behaved, recalcitrant canine-americans, Duchess and Duke. Mad Shirley FOLLYCODDLED her dogs to the point where she had no discretionary income of her own, even though she fancied herself the "alpha male" of her pack. Mad Shirley's few friends tolerated her lunacy, until she declined a much-needed kidney transplant operation so that she could pay for Botox injections for Duchess, and a new wardrobe for Duke. Surely Shirly shouldn't shirk her daily doggie duties, but a diet of Purina Pro-Plan probably promoted her early demise....although she DID have a glossy coat when they found her. WOOF!

Etymology: FOLLY+CODDLE=FOLLYCODDLE.....FOLLY:lack of good sense or normal prudence and foresight regarding the treatmentof domesticated animules,criminally or tragically foolish actions or conduct,an excessively costly or unprofitable undertaking,a foolish act or idea;Middle English folie, from Anglo-French, from fol fool .....CODDLE:to treat with extreme or excessive care or kindness, often to the point of ridiculosity;perhaps from caudle (1598 AD)

Pronunciation: MOG-ee-kod-l

Sentence: Regardless of his petulance, Roxie moggicoddled Koshka with felixation.

Etymology: Blend of MOGGIE: cat (also lamb, calf and other animals in some English dialects) & MOLLYCODDLE:to pamper, cosset, cade. FELIXATION: Blend of "felix" & fixation.


"Moggie" is a common term for a cat in Australia - Is its use widespread - or even known - in other parts of the English speaking world? - OZZIEBOB, 2007-12-11: 06:48:00

"Moggie" seems to be used more by predominantly British-influenced populations. I've never heard it used here (Eastern U.S.) but I'm not really a 'cat person' either. Interesting blend, BTW. - Tigger, 2007-12-11: 14:37:00

I love the way it sounds - Jabberwocky, 2007-12-11: 14:45:00

In Encarta's dictionarie there is no moggie ... only a moggy and here's the definition they gave: mog·gy [ móggee ] (plural mog·gies) noun Definition: U.K. ( informal ) Same as cat (sense 2) [Late 17th century. Variant of aggie - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 15:58:00

oops ... variant of maggie for the above comment correction. I salute you Ozziebob! And Thank You! For me a word I didn't know. - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 16:00:00

ARGHHHHHHH! another correction to the above! For 'giving' me a word I didn't know. Will you 'forgive' me for making too many comments here? And all because I couldn't seem to type what I wanted today! - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 16:01:00
