Mallyree's Peregrine Took, at 5 months. He's "Pippin", of course,
named for Tolkien's
Took. And Peregrine (a.k.a Cugory) was a chief of the Irish Fox
Clan in the early 1400s.
Mallyree's Elanor Rosevelt. Yes, that's how she spells it.
She's named for Tolkien's Elanor Gamgee
and for Rose the Golden Retriever, her
predecessor in our house, as well as for the much
and justifiably beloved
Now that our
granddaughter's named Eleanor, Elanor answers to "Bella".
Elanor and Pippin.
Mallyree's Jethro Tully (died and went to dog heaven). We needed an
Irish name; "Tully" sounded right. We borrowed his name from Tully
Wakeman, a friend and son of a friend. He's not named after
Tull invented the seed drill.
