Hey guys, my baby daddy just took pettiness to a whole new level. My son has been wanting a dog and I said it was ok as long as it’s main home was at his dad’s house. So they went to adopt a dog together and the shelter said they could pick a name since she wasn’t responding to the one they picked… AND OUT OF ALL THE NAMES IN THE WORLD, THEY CHOSE TO NAME THE DOG COOKIE. Normally that would be fine, but Cookie has been my long time nickname! That was petty and disrespectful, everyone knows me as Cookie and this was a low blow, because he also refers to dogs with the derogation female dog name.  It’s like he’s rubbing it in my face. I don’t like it. Is there anything I can do or say to change that or am I straight up S.O.L. (straight out of luck)?! (email your situation to:
