Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?

1 July 2011

So you all remember that I got a puppy right? I mean, how could you not. Well after three weeks of calling “Floyd” after it we took it to the vets today. For the second time! and discovered that he was in fact a she. At first we thought maybe we’ll keep Floyd as the name, not like it really makes a difference right, but on the way home we started to think about names. And so, behold, I give you Ripley:


I can’t remember if I mentioned her parentage, and sure I could open a new tab and look up my last post, but maybe you don’t remember either. Her mother is a collie cross, and her father is a spanial-labrador cross. Already she likes the retrieving. Of course she also likes the nipping and biting for attention, but we’re working on that. Puppy teeth are sharp, and little puppies get bigger. She’s aleady put on 2 kg in the last three weeks. She seems to be getting the whole “leave it” thing. Apart from when life is ever so exciting and she has to run around like a crazy thing and why aren’t you paying attention to her :)

    Puppies should be born wearing either blue or pink booties. :) She really is the most snugglable-looking little thing. Is she a couch dog, or a floor dog? Couch dogs are only one small hop away from bed dogs, you know.

      She seems to prefer the floor, although occasionally she'll hop up on the couch. but she isn't allowed upstairs, so definitely not a bed-dog.

      Upstairs is Mew's domain, and it will remain that way.

    My friends' cat is ancient and for years they thought it was a girl… Turned out it was in fact a boy. At that point, they just kept the name. It's a bit funny, though, because he is a major tomcat. Gets in lots of fights… and then they call him 'Honey'. It just makes me laugh!

    Cute puppy, though. I really want a puppy, but am forced to wait until when someone has time for the dog…

      Cats are more difficult than dogs usually though, aren't they? We were given a kitten many years ago and told it was a girl. Few weeks later we took a look and Cleo became Leo :)

      I think you're probably right to hang on, they do take up a lot of time
