Question 17: Favorite Stuffed Animal

Blogathon 2006

From Liz: What was your favorite stuffed animal as a kid?

Here he is!

Meet Daddy's Puppy. That's his name, because my mom gave him to my dad for Valentine's Day one year, before they were even married. She embroidered his ears - one says "To Dave" and the other says "I Love You." Awww.

When I was two or three, I think, I found him when my dad was going through boxes or something, and adopted him. I slept with him through at least some of college, until he got too fragile. As you can see, he's not in great shape, and he's had several "surgeries" over the years. He even has a scar on his chest that matches mine.

He's had lots of adventures, too, including a few times when he came perilously close to being LOST FOREVER. Let me tell you, those were NOT fun. For me or for my parents, I'm sure.

Awwww! I still sleep with my teddy bear, although he has stopped traveleing with me for fear he'll like one of the hotels better than home.

Hooray for the Pup!

Remember when he was lost but we found him tucked in the bed rail? That was a real nail-biter!

I hope you're getting some rest, and good for you for raising all that money!

Your pup's story makes me think of the Aunt Dimity books, which I dearly love. The critters have such personality!
