Today we picked up our new puppy. We’re still not one hundred per cent on her name, but we’re going with Ripley at the moment. It depends a lot on her personality which will emerge over the next few days.

So far she seems a very quiet little chap and is comfortably asleep on her bed, as you can see in the photo. And even better is the news that Lady Mew seems fine with her. She has sniffed her once or twice, is a little uncertain around him, but so far so good.

Yea, after our second trip to the vets it turns out that “Floyd” is a girl dog. So she has been renamed Ripley, after the Sigourney Weaver character from Alien

    So is he Pretty Boy Floyd after the band or after the bank robber? IIRC Channing Tatum played him in Public Enemies for about 5 minutes before Batman totally executed his ass without trial. Poor Pretty Boy.
