Yes, he’s named after Frank Zappa’s son, who I saw do a couple shows honoring Dad’s music, with Dad’s old band. They were both very, very good.

So here’s my new boy. So far, not a peep out of him, doing what he’s told for the most part, and the cats are invisible. I ‘spect that will change before too long. He isn’t even all that interested in them.


Update: He’s an Adopt-A-Pet special, breed unknown. He and his equally adorable litter-mates came from a high kill shelter in KY. They’re pretty sure Mom had some Spaniel (I didn’t ask which) and it’s hard not to see a little Lab in him, Shepherd, Husky, who knows. Your guess is as good as mine. I just know he’s infinitely sweet and cute.
