I'm 'allowed' one more child. We are going to ttc in 6 months, MiL said today when her dog dies (he is 16(?) now) she will name a dog Rufus, I went 'noooooooooo, I want that name for a baby!! Your dogs already made me veto Ben and Charlie!!'
I love the name Rufus too but Dh put his foot down when DS was born and we had to compromise. He was nearly persuaded but then i made the mistake of telling him my first pony was called Rufus. It's a lovely lovely name VS - I hope you get there first
It suits the dog better! I thought from the title that you were going to say your MIL liked Rufus and you thought it was dreadful! I think they would get teased in the playground-it is a bit like calling them Rover!
