Tonight, at an early Halloween celebration in our hameau, we learned that our local, retired but influential, farmer has named his new dog, Brexit! Everyone thought it highly amusing but no-one knew the reason behind it. Is he glad we might go or hoping that we might stay? Whatever, a great evening was had by all, especially the kids!

Sue.

It makes a great name for a dog !

We haven't come across anyone who seems to have the slightest interest in anything Brexit - no-one has even mentioned it. Perhaps they all assume it just doesn't concern them.

Very few signs of Halloween here. One brico shop had a few slightly deflated balloons up - they looked like last year's. There were also some extremely tired-looking bat and spider stickers that had bits missing :lol:

Funny that - my daughter has just sent me a photo of a friend's Golden Labrador puppy called Brexit.

As you say, it has a nice ring as a word, even without the connotation.

Easy to say, easy for the dog to hear
Damn, if we get a new guide dog puppy soon it will have an M name.....
