Anout Bulgarian words being present in Croatian and serbian The word kushta has no analogue in Slavic languages,excep Eastern "Serbian" dialects, Eastern Serbia is populated mainly by Bulgarians, also not to mention the Panonain Bulgars and Serbia being a part of the Bulgarian Empire for a very long time.
Kuche in bulgarian does not mean "small" dog but just a dog. Kutre is a small dog (same as tajik or pashto Kutray).
Again, I say it - These words could be seen on Bulgar inscriptions as well as many other words. So what does that mean - the Bulgars spoke an indo-euroean language. They wrote from left to right, unlike the turkic people who wrote from up to down or from right to left, had indo-europen grammar and mostly indoeuropen words(mostly iranic) and a few turkic ones.
1. The word Kucha (kuæa) is a standard word for "home" in Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian. In Eastern Serbia people say "dom" just like Russians. For example in western Serbian dialect "I'm going home" would be "idem kuchi", but in eastern it would be "idem doma".
2. Bulgarians in Serbia live only in Dimitrovgrad and Bosilegrad, towns took from you in the 2nd Balkan War. My father is from place called Crna Trava, just near Bulgarian border, and guess what... we are not Bulgarians
3. How long was Serbia part of Bulgarian Empire? Croatia and Slovenia were never a part of Bulgarian Empire, but they also use the word "kucha".
4. In Serbian the word "kuche" means "small dog" because suffix "-che" is used for deminutive (like "patka" - duck; "pache" - small duck). "Kutre" is a dog cub.
Something about inscriptions... In central Mongolia there is one inscription called Bugut inscription. It was written in Sogdian language and the story goes about Blue Turk kaghans. So using your method of making conclusions, people would say that Blue Turks spoke Sogdian language. ;D
