Logging Out; Key Elements in Puppy Name

Today spent mainly on a branch operation to clear backlogs!

A relaxed new family member.

It seems the name of Sharkie
For new pup’s not quite right,
And neither, quite, is Darkie
For reasons I won’t cite,

And nonsense is Malarkey,
Though fitting, to degrees;
Quite useless would be Barky —
He don’t do much of these.

And no good would be Spikey,
The truth, there, is the grouse;
We could, of course, try Mikey,
But that’s too like a mouse,

Or even, then, choose Highkey —
Voice, locked outside the place? —
You may ask, “Yes, but why ‘key?’”…
A poser, there, to face!?

So, Jack, from Jack the Ripper;
Another with a chance;
When let loose at a slipper,
Shows worth more than a glance.

My favourite, though, is Loki —
The Mischief God, you know —
Though it brings back in tow, ‘key’,
It goes well with the flow!

    He is gradually working his magic on you so how about Merlin? Failing that go down the Harry Potter route!
