A name for your new Christmas pet

 

A chara, – Some words of reassurance for all the people giving a home to a pet this Christmas and facing the drama of what to call their new arrival.

One of our dogs, otherwise dim-witted in the extreme, knows both his names; the smart little Yorkshire Terrier answers to all three of his.

Cats, on the other hand, ignore all names not accompanied by the sound of a tin being opened. – Yours, etc,
