Wanted: Another Pup!


Last week while at the midwife, a small tragedy occurred. Pup was lost. Lydia played with him in the room while the midwife saw me, but somehow we left the room without him. At the car, we realized he was missing and went back to retrieve him. We both went in separately and checked with the nurses in the room and retraced our steps to the car. No luck. Pup had vanished in 5 minutes!
Thankfully we still have 2 Pups left. (At this point you're laughing thinking, "that's not enough?".) If you've ever seen the way she loves on this poor animal you know why we need several! He receives daily love bites on the face and ears - causing him a few minor injuries -and basically goes everywhere with her. He is the only toy that has the privilege of riding in the seat of her toy shopping cart - everything else gets thrown into the the basket area. She usually wants to be able to see him at meal time - especially breakfast. She has tried to give him a bath. She has tried to put a diaper on him. He watches "dd's" with her. He always sleeps with her and she cries pitifully if she throws him out of the crib and can't get him back. Recently he aquired his own "banket"- even though she doesn't have anything like that for herself. Now she wants to tow that thing around with him too.
All this to say, I'd really like to have another spare. Pup goes into the washing machine at least once a week and I don't know how long he'll last! SO - if any of you ever happen to see a Pup and can pick it up for us, I will happily cover all costs! I've found this stuffed animal at the Osk Kosh outlet stores for about $6. Unfortunately, they are out of him at Discover Mills. So if anyone likes to hit other outlets nearby and can pop into that store... we'd appreciate it!

We'll keep our eyes open. Pup is quite the companion for Lydia.

I think Ella has one just alike. She said she would be happy to donate it to the Lydia Pup Foundation. =) He is like new. We will make sure it is the same one and if so we will bring it your way. Trust me, I understand these things with B and blankie! =)

I have your stroller! I will bring it Sunday.

I think there is an Osh Kosh outlet in commerce. The next time we head down there I will check it out.

What will you do if Lauren falls in love with pup as well?

Oh, I lost a favorite stuffed animal at Hancocks in Athens. We looked ALL OVER the store for it but never did find it. We even left a description with the cashier in case she found it.

Yesterday, Lydia put Pup in Kate's car seat and thought that was a riot! Pup is like a baby to her, which is probably why he needs a blanket.

Jen, Cracker Barrel might have one. I know that they have blue ones. :-)

It must be nice to have replacements! We never thought Nathan would get attached to an animal, but at about 8 months he got sick and got attached to William. Now he has the typical matted fur look of a well loved lovey. Oh well...
