Having people 3500 years later know your dog’s name is pretty good work

@prehensile So I'm literally doing some scholarly research on donkeys and I must know the source

@dressupgeekout it’s a 1989 book by Rosalind and Jack Janssen called “Egyptian Household Animals,” I got it at a junk shop

There’s no specific citation for eeyore unfortunately

@prehensile Thank you very much! -- besides, I think the Eeyore thing is wrong, somehow I recall that Eeyore was just Christopher Robin's way of saying hee-haw (say it with an English accent) but I haven't verified THAT either
