This mum’s not happy a friend’s dog has the name she wants to call her baby and it’s a furiously funny read
To be filed under ‘Well, this escalated quickly’ is an exchange shared online by Craig Pendlebury with a woman who wants to call her new baby Tillie.
Only problem is she’s got a friend – well, sort of – who’s got a dog called Tilly and she really, really wants her friend to change it because, you know, she can’t give her kid a dog’s name right?
Here’s how Craig introduced it.

And this is how it went.
And just a few of the things people had to say about it after it went viral on Twitter.
as someone who was named after a dog named tilly, and since became besties with another dog named tilly; it is great sharing name with a “mutt” 💁🏼♀️

The only solution is to suggest she name the baby Tillier. Then it’s time to get a dog named Tilliest.

Did anyone think how it impacts the dog’s life? Imagine a human stealing your name…Gosh….

Message back that you have spoken to your dog, and it seems Tilly is quite chuffed at you naming the baby after her, so crisis diverted!

I would get another dog and call it Jennay
