Our expert says:
If she wrote really owful poems about the creature, we could call it Doggerel, I suppose.
Doesn't this sound like a variation of someone with a new love-affair or engagement, that talks about their happiness far beyond the point that anyone else is interested ? Was she perhaps a really lonely person before, who now has a pleasant love in her life ?
You could try calmly saying : You know, I also find your new dog adorable, but I would love us to also talk about other things, because you're interesting in other ways as well". Or maybe buy a budgie and get in first, telling her about each seed eaten and each feather dropped. Then when she suggests she's not quite so dotty about your pet, suggest you both cut back on the pet-talk ?
