What to name the new pup?

Is he an Oliver or a Kirby? We can’t decide.

He’s 14-months old. We adopted him from H.O.P.E. rescue in Turlock, CA. He’s red, long, sports a white strip down his chest, walks with a slight limp when he’s tired (he was hit by a car in July), is under 15 pounds, and gets along great with Frances. He pulled all of the toys out of the basket, had a bath, and now, is fast asleep on the couch.

More details to come. We’re exhausted.

    He is completely adorable.
    He seems more like an Oliver to me, I think, although Kirby is an excellent second choice.

    Yeah, I think we are crazy, but he is pretty cute. I think we’re moving toward Kirby, which seems to fit his personality. He pretty much slept through the night with the exception of a during-a-dream bark.

    What? Not Mort II?

    Funny, very funny. Actually, he does look a bit like him. Maybe I should post a picture of Mort I.

    Yes! Please! I can still hear the sound of his bark and the clicking of his nail on the wood floor!
