Meet Lola ( L-O-L-A Low-lah)

So we have been looking for a small dog that would be not too much like Jane.  Believe it or not the not-like-Jane thing was my idea; I did not want to get a dog that was something like her & then be unhappy with the poor girl because she was not actually Jane.  A was leaning towards a more dachshund-y dog, the look, the busyness, the whole dachshund shtick.

Meet Lola (FKA Tasha which was Rocky & Bullwinkle et al to me but sounds like a stripper trying to seem exotic to A, funny how those things work).  She was a year old in March, & is settling in so far, but she just arrived yesterday afternoon so things are still up in the air.  She came from a rescue about 1.5 hours drive from here & had a long drive home.  On that drive we had a short conversation about what to call her & we thought we could live with Tasha.  & then the Kinks came on the radio & at the time we both said "what about..?" 

So now we have a Lilly (short for Lilliputian) & Lola.  Oh well.  On the upside, we keep singing to her, which she actually seems to like. 


  1. She is adorable.

    Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
    With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there

  2. I think singing to her is really comforting. How lucky she is that a few fun songs were written about her. She's a cutie.

    Thanks for joining the Block Lotto's Weekend Update Linky party.

  3. And the oldie, from Damn Yankees, Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.
