Baby Elvis (post 1000)

There is a new baby on the street. The Hammer had her first sniff of the baby yesterday. The baby wiggled helplessly in its stroller as my dog had a close look before giving the baby a good luck lick across his pink face.

"He was a week early," the baby's mom told me. The baby is my neighbour's first child; the first baby on the street for a couple years.

"What's his name?" I asked.

The boy's father told me, "His name is Elvis. Same as his grand-dad."

"You think he is going to win the Stanley Cup when he grows up?"

"Fucking right he is."

My curiosity is piqued, but not about the baby.
How old is Hammer ?
What breed of dog is she ? I'm betting a Lab cross.
