Replacement puppies.

My son has a beloved stuffed animal. Actually, he has two beloved stuffed animals. They are exactly the same. For the longest time, Fynn would not play with a stuffed animal, but he eventually fell in love with the Ty brand stuffed dog “Calhoun” that my husband bought for me on a work trip a long time ago. Calhoun became Fynn’s pacifier replacement when we went through that “joyous” experience. When I discovered that Fynn loved his Puppy (that’s his new name), a friend of mine suggested that we better get a Puppy replacement, you know, just in case. So, I started the online search for imposter Puppy. I quickly discovered that Puppy is one of the “retired” Ty products. My heart sank. Uh oh. But, I discovered a Puppy on Amazon, so all was well. I ordered imposter Puppy (for only $17) and got him in the mail. Good thing I did, because the day he arrived original Puppy got tossed into the bathtub “on accident.”

Well, Fynn has a habit of sucking on Puppy’s nose for comfort (we wash Puppy A LOT). Today I noticed that Puppy has a hole in his nose (probably from my son gnawing on it and me washing a plush doll over and over again). I grabbed imposter Puppy or Puppy No. 2 and he had a hole in his nose, too. Uh oh. So I decided I better try to find some Puppy replacements. I went online and there were some (very few) replacements on both Amazon and EBay, but that’s it. He’s going to have to be careful with these two new Puppies because OMG they are expensive for a plush toy. But, how could I not buy Puppy replacements? Those two plush dogs are the only things he really LOVES to sleep with. Alas. They will be here soon…and he can start sucking on their noses, too. This time, he’s getting one Puppy at a time. Although, Nate is convinced that Fynn will have 4 puppies soon. He’s probably right.

    Erin, I love you very much. But we need to get you out of that apartment and schedule an adult playdate with adult beverages. Nate can stay home 😉

    (Please forgive me if I have unintentionally offended you)

    Ha! It could be worse. I could be talking about poop. I’ll save that for the next post. 😛 I do need to leave the house, though. I’m starting to spend too much time reading comment board diatribes and watching endless amounts of cooking shows while obsessing about money, cleaning my house, and losing 10 pounds. Who watches cooking shows while on a diet anyways. Anywho. Are you sure you want to hang out with me?

    Of course I do! I, too, am trying to lose weight, obsessing about money, and having trouble cleaning my house (and I’m just one person). We could also talk about crazy Milwaukee arts people.

    Lucky you, Olya! Try not to let him become attached to expensive irreplaceable ones. 😉

    I’ll e-mail you, Carrie! I could go for a drink. 😉
