Dog confusion

I take The New Dog Wilson Blue Rabbit for a walk, and as usual run into my neighbour - known on these pages as Sky Meat Woman - outside our house.

We have had The New Dog Wilson Blue Rabbit for two months now, but the conversation whenever we run into Sky Meat Woman is always the same:

SMW: "There's your lovely dog. What's his name again?"
Me: "Wilson"
SMW: "Winston"
Me: "No, Wilson."
SMW: "Hello, Winston!"

And the next day:

SMW: "There's your lovely dog. What's his name again?"
Me: "Wilson"
SMW: "Winston"
Me: "No, Wilson."
SMW: "Hello, Winston!"

Until:

SMW: "There's your lovely dog. What's his name again?"
Me: "Wilson"
SMW: "Winston"
Me: "Oh f___ it, he's Winston. From this moment on, his name is Winston."
SMW: "I thought you said he was Wilson"

Our next dog is going to be called "None of your business you mad old harpie".

Are there any digital cameras that prevent 'green eye' on pictures of dogs?

Emmi: Nope, that's his natural green glow

Be careful. It's well known that dogs worship the sky meat people as gods (ever since the great chipolata hailstorm of 2005.) He will rip out your lungs if you insult one of their kind.

Where can I buy a dog with naturally glowing green eyes?
There's a Siamese cat who controls our street and even the big dogs are scared of him.

Just tell her they are twins Wilson and Winston, but you only have one lead.

Or you can just say his name is W and hope she doesn't ask 'M?'
