After much discussion we settled on the name Alfie. Although he will answer to any of the nmes suggested! Thanks to everyone who submitted suggestions. I must say my family and friends are creative and erudite.
Alfie is a dedicated, and effective digger - as he was breed to do - so, gardening with him is a challenge. I plant it, and he digs it up. We are looking forward to the time when he is housebroken.
