Finding names for animals has never been a difficulty for my grandsons Harvey J and Ollie.
Remember my two chickens, both called Richard? Well Ollie's recently named his toy Labrador Puppy 'Monty'. And why not; if it works for our Monty, why not for his too.
I should also add that our 'house bear' is also called Monty, so we now have three Montys.
So, here is Harvey J with Ollie's Monty; enjoying a coffee somewhere in London (possibly Greenwich). Looks like Monty's enjoying one too.
And here they are up above The Palace of Westminster on The London Eye. Good to see Ollie's holding on to Monty (not our Monty, or Monty the Bear; but HIS Monty).
Aren't they just lovely little fellows.The Eye is fantastic , I always thought I would have liked a second go in the evening..I loved London Cro but I guess it weaves its magic on many travellers,not quite the same as living there I imagine.Monty is a great name so i guess it does not matter how many "family" members have it lol.ReplyDelete
I used to have a cat called Monty and my neighbour has a cat called Monty, Monty Don is called Monty - now there are all your Monty's. The world is going Monty mad.ReplyDelete
A Mountain of Monty's.Delete
Did you ever see the real Monty, walking around Farnham with trade-mark duffle coat and beret, carrying a shopping basket in the 60s Cro?ReplyDelete
I don't think I actually saw him, but didn't he go to the Post Office every week to pick up his pension?ReplyDelete
I take no responsibility for my dogs name Roobarb, she was already called that when we adopted her. Ellie has endured 10 years of jokers pointing at her and asking "is that one called Custard?" like they were the first to have thought of it...ReplyDelete
Makes it easy to call everyone to the supper table!ReplyDelete
Now that you have a Bok as well, i wonder if they'll call other animals by that name.ReplyDelete
What adorable little boys!ReplyDelete
Good names can go a long ways. I cycle through chickens on my urban "farm" at a rather frightening rate. We just reuse the names. Nora Jones Chicken is on its fourth time around. Queen Latifah Hen is at only two. Somewhere between reincarnation and expedience.ReplyDelete
Love the photos. Ollie looks just like Grampy.ReplyDelete
Ollie is the spitting image of me at that age!Delete
Sweet kids, nice pictures!ReplyDelete
We've always thought for quite a long time for renaming our dogs... And we still love the names we chose, but sometimes it is hard go tell people 10 times the pronounciation of "Myrtille" until they might give up and say "ok, I call her Myrthe". And having a Myrtille and a Flavie is hard for them sometimes - but mostly it is both coming, not none :-)
