    Question

    My friend said to me that you have mastered Russian if you can say, "зузик", "козел', "щенок" and a few select curse words that I'd rather not write.... but she always says "зузик" when referring to cute animals.... what does "зузик" mean?

    I hear it (and read it) for the first time in my life. It might be her own talk or maybe some regional one.

    ADD: Search engines show some people having surname Зузик and nothing more.

    Yeah, I've never heard it either.

    "Зузик" sounds like something between "зюзя" (very colloquial, describes a sluggish person, also used in relation to drunk people) and "Тузик" (a clich
