Fixing Fluffy

You may have seen Moon's stuffed toy in pictures here and there.  Well, that's Fluffy.  She's had it since her first Christmas.  It's a stuffed bone with one of those squeakers in it.  I know.  I know.  We are not supposed to give our dogs that kind of toy.  Moon has always been fine with it.  Since I am not a cardiologist, I never wanted to perform surgery to remove Fluffy's heart (the squeaker).  And so it stayed.

Several months ago, long before moving, I came across Fluffy while packing.  Noticing it had several small holes, I was tempted to simply toss it.  I chose otherwise, placing it in my sewing basket as I packed.  Well, now that I can sit for short periods, I dug out my sewing basket to try to play catch up and there it was right on top.



Moon watched intently as I stitched and re-stitched.  It was as if she knew Fluffy was in good hands even though many surgeries had been performed on Fluffy in the past.  


When I was done, she gently took him out of my hand and placed him right on her bed.  Moon was happy as I watched her placed her head on top of him.  As with so many other things, they only need our time.

Being the irresponsible person I am I've given Duke plenty of toys with squeakers in them. He being the smart dog that he is always removes them first thing. Duke thinks that having something inside a toy is senseless.
Moon must be much kinder to her toys than Duke is :)

They know how to show appreciation don't they?

great story, touched me to the bottom of my heart. we had a dog named Max, his joy in life was to remove the squeaker from new toys. he still played with them, but minus the squeaker. Cooper was a dog who had to have a squeaker to be happy, he would wander the house going squeaky squeaky.

We've performed that same kind of surgery on many patients in our household and just like the face in your post, you can tell that it's always appreciated! :-)

Sioux is our squeaky toy dog -- she loves to gently massage her toys with her mouth and hear the noise.

I've pulled together more dog toys with needle and thread than I care to admit -- but it's all good! :)
