After days of tossing around names like Gretel, Strudel, and Lucy, Rick suddenly remembers the 70's tv show Battle Star Galactica had a brown fluffy robot dog whose ears would rotate, anmed Muffet. And just like that, the name stuck.
Muffet took to the kids immeadiately. She follows them, tries to jump on the couch with them, bites their toes to get them to play with her and uses their toys as chewies. Auntie Robin found 3 Zhu Zhu pets for us for Christmas, but apparently she didn't know she was buying them for Muffet's enjoyment. Muffet can use her paw to whack them into the "on" position. Then chases them all over the floor.
Adeline has a love-hate relationship with Muffet. Sometimes she wants to walk her, sleep with her and feed her, and other times she picks everything of hers up off the floor and keeps saying" that's not a toy mubbet" Since she can't say Muffet yet. I think Bandit would be smiling down from heaven at our new little fudgy puppy and say " It was time to move on."
