Moonwalk Monday: Bunny Names

Since I missed last Friday's Flashback, as well as the one previous, I thought I should post one today. Don't worry, loyal reader(s), as of this Friday we will resume normal Flashback programming.

These pictures were taken in May and June of 1983, which means I was almost four years old. I loved animals, still do today, and was lucky enough to have a menagerie of pets. Dogs, cats, a turtle, rabbits, pigeons, chickens, ducks, a guinea pig and a short-lived hamster rounded out our family at one time or another.


All of them had names that we chose after an extensive process involving research into the animal's appearance and/or personality and usually the input of a focus group or two.

Pictured below is the appropriately named Snowball--a name that is so creative it must have taken days of brainstorming and debate:




And her bunny sibling, Black Snowball:


Even at four I was a naming genius.

You have evolved in your animal naming techniques. I mean, how on earth did you come up with Syndey and Parker?

You failed to mention the band-aid on your finger because one of the snowballs bit you.

I love your bunny names--I forgot all about them! Did you ever find out what happened to Mitzy--the crazy cat with thumbs?

You are a naming genius! If only I had taken your suggestion to name my baby "Mirando".

With all those animals you could've started Price's finest "Mabbutt Zoo."
