I've been seeing a lot of posters saying "puppers" for puppies/dogs lately

Is that a new term? I honestly never heard of it until last week, but now I'm seeing it used everywhere.

10. Pupper is for puppy and doggo is for dog.

Except doggos like it when you call them puppers.

11. I use it a lot, but only picked it up in the last few years.

My sister's dog is named Roxie, which is the name her kids picked out, but she and I always call her Puppers. It seems to suit her better. It's almost a term of endearment. We just love her to pieces and Puppers just seems like a more loving name for some reason to us. She is just the most beautiful dog in the world to me.
