(Or, what would you name a pet if you had one?): My doggies: Max (15.5 yrs), Molly (15.5 yrs), Peanut (14.5 yrs) - All Miniature Pinschers (Max and Molly are Peanut's mom & dad). Let's not forget my hermit crabs: Marlon, Virgil, and one more which we never named. Don't know why. But if anyone has a suggestion, I'll take it
