basse the bunny
I think our little bunny has found himself a name…. Basseterre.
Now before you go thinking I’m crazy and have an affinity for strange names, let me explain this one to you. I wanted to stick with our little family theme of city names… but was having trouble of finding something to match up with Memphis (our boston terrier). I didn’t want to pick a city where I’ve never been… and I wanted something with a nickname, since I rarely call anyone, let alone pets, by their full names (just ask my nephew, who mimics my “Memph” calls).
When we were playing around today, I got quite a few little bunny nudges indicating I was impeding the pathway hop-way in his pen, and I remarked aloud, “My aren’t we a bossy little bunny!” And then…. Basse seemed like the perfect little nickname. Basseterre happens to be the capital city of St. Kitts & Nevis, where we honeymooned for 8 lovely days, so it’s not only a city I’ve been but also a city I love.
So there you go… Basse. Eat up all the paper scraps you want and enjoy your new name. Please forgive me if I call you “bunny” or “bun bun” or “silly rabbit” as well… because while you deserve a big fancy name, sometimes I just get lazy.
I’m back with an 808, ’cause I’m bossy! :)
I like the name! Those pictures are adorable.
The name is perfect! I love that you picked his name based on having an appropriate nickname.
I followed you over from Weddingbee (and Pengy) and I’m finally delurking to say that your bunny literally turned me into a puddle at my desk. I can’t handle his cuteness.
Love your blog!
EEEK, your bun buns is SO CUTE. I want one now too. :)
Ooh, what delicious photos. Love it. Love the “bunny” label, too…it promises many more lusciously cute photos!
So, I have a request…Can you write out a phonetic pronounciation of Mr. B’s name? I saw the pronounciation guide on Wikipedia, but I have always not been good at deciphering those. I just want to make sure I’m saying his name right when I squeal, “Oh, look at Basseterre’s new photos today!”
Oh my goodness! He is so adorable, and such a neat name. I love love love bunnies!
lol cathleya, that’s what i was thinking too!
