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.
