    So Sam Sloan is really Clifford? Sort of puts a whole new spin on those stories. Who is the big black dog? Is Sirius Black really a member of the Redman gang, and will this be revealed in book 5? Around here we also have yellow dogs, which I understand are known as blue dogs in Texas, and are actually a variety of donkey; which side are they on and how do they feel about Mensa districts?

    Nope. Still do not see a Sirius Black/Spike connection at all. If Sirius has any analog in Buffy it would be Giles IMO.(As I think further, even that's a stretch)

    I sort of hate the "following the pack" aspect to naming a dog "Sirius Black," but it is such a *fantabulous* name for a Flat-Coat in so many ways, and I'm such a fan of the character, that it's very very tempting.
