zoo boy jr

I've been tripping happily through a series of American field dog stud books published from 1901 to 1923.  Why? For the sheer entertainment of the names:

Shadeland Flashlight
Bang Bang Fred
Zoo Boy Jr.
Bird Graphic
Princess Nicotine Buckellew
The Abbot
Kate Perry (an English Setter from Hot Springs AR)
Queen of the Stubble
. . .  and that's from ONE year.

- Rowe, Nicholas, Mrs. The Field Dog Stud Book: an Authentic Register of Names, Colors, Ages, Pedigrees, Sex, Winnings And Owners of Field Dogs On the American Continent. Chicago: American Field Pub. Co., for Mrs. Dr. N. Rowe. v. 3 (1902), 1903.
