She is a 5 1/2 week old Piebald Dachshund. She came to us all the way from Virgina. She is cute and spunky. We named her after the movie character Lt. Ellen Ripley from Alien. Yes, we are crazy - the guys would not let me namer her Tallulah (after Tallulah Bankhead the actress from the 30's and 40's) and I didn't like the names they were coming up with. One night we were sitting down relaxing in front of the tv and one of my favorite movies came on - Alien. We all agreed and she did to!
