How did Sherlock get his nickname Twirly?
"Some friends recommended their breeder and when we got him as a little puppy his name was Aesop. Ralph was a retired Police Detective and we had a legal investigations business so Sherlock seemed to fit. Of course he had to have a nickname, and the obvious choice was "Shirley" but that was too girly so what with his curly tail, we chose "Twirly." He loved everyone and was sweet and gentle and my best friend.
