People Are Talking About The Worst Pet Names They Have Ever Encountered And I Can't Help But Snort Laugh


Not long ago, Reddit user u/Lia_Julee asked, “Vets of Reddit, what was the worst pet name you have ever encountered in your job?”

2. “So I’m not a vet, but I’m deeply involved in the horse world…When naming quarter horses, many breeders like to create a registered name that incorporates the parents’ names and bloodlines. So, somebody bred together the stallion Kid’s Classic Style and the mare Lookin’ Touchable. The best name that the breeders could come up with for the foal? KidsLookinTouchable. Yeah. That’s the best they could come up with.”
