Who is Steve?

Bubba loves stuffed animals. He goes through his cycles where he plays "family" with his animals, gathering all of them up into his bed or on the couch. Big animals become the mommies and daddies, little ones become the babies.

Bubba is in such a phase right now and recently acquired a new beanie puppy tagged "Rowdy" thanks to the kindness (and idolization) of his brother Moose. This new puppy has been lovingly renamed.

"Mom, how 'bout his name is Steve Rowdy?" he beamed.

Every puppy he owns has the name it was given by the manufacturer prefaced by "Steve." So we have "Steve Sarge" the German Shepherd, "Steve Sneakers" the cute cream-colored dog with the brown ears, and "Steve Fudge" who, well, looks like fudge. There are more, but my memory can only handle a few puppies at a time.

I don't know who Steve is, but he made an impression on Bubba. Or at least his name did.
