I haven’t spoken about it yet, because I wanted to make sure everything was okay before I broke the news.

Well... Chipper is now the proud owner of a baby sister. I say owner, she’s not mine, she’s mum’s and dads – but she’s kind of mine too, right?

I say that because it will be me playing with the little pup, me making her laugh and me, being the best older brother ever.

She is only a little, tiny dog at the moment, but I am bursting with excitement to spend time with her and turn her into a little mini-me.

We haven’t got a name for her yet, none of us can come up with anything. Now that’s where you lovely lot come in.

I’m asking all my Chipsters to write to me or e-mail me with a new name for my baby sister.

I will pick a name in a couple of weeks. I’m excited to see what you come up with. I know the choices will be great!

Don’t forget to tell me your name and your Chipper Club number, and I’ll mention you on this page once I’ve picked a name.

Better still – why not colour in the picture of my sister on the right and send it to me with your new name suggestion?

Look at her tail, it looks like a dinosaur’s. I can tell she’s going to be a mischievous one...

Chip chip for now.
