That's not what a pun is. A pun is a joke that relies on ambiguous or
multiple meanings of words being mixed together. Onomatopoeia is a word
that imitates the sound of what it describes or what it is associated
with. *chuy* does not mix together ambiguous or multiple meanings; it
simply imitates the sound of what it describes.
