Ellie's AKC registration form has finally arrived in the mail (yay!) and it's, thankfully, not as complicated as I thought it would be. The only area that I'm slightly unsure of is the Limited Registration area. It says that the box should be completely darkened for Limited Registration, but all I see is a number in the box. I'm assuming that means that it will, indeed, be Limited and the box isn't supposed to be colored in. Not that it matters, since I'll be having her spayed in a couple of months.
We've been discussing names for her registration and I sort of regret not calling her Daisy. She's definitely not a Daisy, but what a great AKC name I had for that. She would've been "Dollop Of Daisy." That darned jingle always gets stuck in my head! But since she's an Ellie, my husband has suggested "Lady Ellington Frapsworth, III." He claims that the "III" makes her sound more like she's from an established (royal) lineage and, I have to admit, I have yet to come up with something better. Do any of you have any creative suggestions? We want a fun name, but nothing too far out there.
My other furry friend, Yuki, is having some issues which I suspect are being caused by a food allergy. His hair is falling out and he has started licking his front paws more frequently. And this, of course, has become noticeable just when we can't get him to the Vet's office for the next week or two. So I'll be switching him from his fish-based TotW over to the lamb-based Sierra Mountain formula. His Science Diet food used to be lamb & rice so I know he's okay with lamb. Hopefully it's not some other ingredient, like potato, that's the real culprit. His skin is otherwise fine (dry, but it's been that way his adult life), though, and he's his normal self. I'm still going to have the Vet check him to be sure, though.
