Hi, sorry it's been so long--interesting thing I learned today

I am so sorry, it's been 3 months since I've posted. It's not that I don't want to post, it's just time gets away from me so quickly.

Everyone is fine at my house. The twins are doing really really well. They've started a new habit of sitting very close and kissing each other. It's very puppy-like and simply adorable, not that my children are not naturally adorable.

I did find out something really cool this morning. Chancey's registered name is Chanson de Nuit. Night Song in French, because she is black. It just flowed so beautifully. When she was a puppy, she was named Cordelia and her sister was named Regan, their brother was Robin. The names are from Shakespeare. I always thought they were from the Tempest because of their grandfather, but Cordelia and Regan were the daughters in King Lear. Robin is not in that play, but he was originally shown under the name "Robin Goodfellow"--I googled him. Robin Goodfellow is another name for Puck. Per Wikipedia, Puck took the form of a black dog.

I love finding out little things like this. Really, Robin is the perfect name for a little black dog. I love it!
