Frankie Furter started his own Name Game and I decided to join in the fun with Jake & Fergi, Asta and a few other pals! Mama loved me so much as soon as she met me and immediately started calling me Baby. I was pretty scared on the car trip from Cottonwood, Arizona to Phoenix and she just kept saying, "You'll be all right, Baby." So, that is where my first name came from. Next, I would crack her and Daddy up when I would get the 5 o'clock crazies, aka the zoomies! She said I looked just like a rocket dog the way I ran so fast. So, she decided Baby Rocket Dog of Phoenix should be my official name. I usually just go by Baby, but there are some folks who call me Rocket. No one just calls me Dog though. See the picture of the Rocket Dog shoes above? That is JUST what I look like when I do zoomies. Funny thing is that now our mom has several pair of Rocket Dog shoes...Seems I have inspired her footwear too. BOL.Now Hootie's real name is Hairy Houdini. He got the name Houdini because he has been an escape artist since the day mama brought him home. Daddy was the one that decided Hairy (rather than Harry) was most appropriate. His nickname Hootie came about because mama thought that calling such a long name would be tedious, plus she always liked Hootie and the Blowfish, sooooo that's the story of Hootie's name.
