Name That Blog

So, for those of you who are wondering about the name of the blog, here's the story. All of you know how much I love Watership Down, right? It occurred to me that the raw food diet is basically rabbit food! The rabbit language in Watership Down is called Lapine. So, in rabbit-speak, the word for food is "flay," the word that means to go up out of the burrow to graze is "silflay," and the word for king or prince is "Rah." Thus, the title of this blog is Lapine for "Emerge from under the ground and eat the King of all foods." It also doesn't hurt that the word "Rah" sounds exactly the same as the word "raw." So, the header shows Matt, myself, and our three little bunnies, enjoying silflay in the excellent green grasses of the Down. The background image (maximize your browser to see the whole thing) is a photograph of the real Watership Down in Hampshire, England.
