Last weekend, I was at the store with my BFFSK* Jenna (who had flown in from Duke University for Christmas) and my mom. ¬†Jenna and I share a mutual love of dogs and spoiling them unnecessarily, so we went to look for Christmas presents for our dogs while my mom checked out storage options for Christmas cookies.
(Honestly, why bother storing them when we all know they’ll get plowed down in a matter of hours)
I found this adorable Lamb Chops toy, which reminded me of the Lamb Chops puppets that my brother and I used to have as kids. I *loved* Lamb Chops.
Okay, so Rory LOVES this toy. I have never seen her act so crazy for something that doesn’t involve a treat or a car ride. ¬†She lays on the floor with it in-between her paws, and barks ferociously at the cats when they walk by (they look at her like, “why in the HELL do you think we’d take your dumb lamb”)
She protects it fiercely – ¬†she actually picks it up, stretches with it in her mouth, and turns around before lying back down and resting it between her paws. ¬†It’s truly adorable.
After she put a teensy hole in it, she waited anxiously with her head on my knee, sighing frequently while I stitched it up.
What have you given the animals in your life for Christmas? Anything over the top? Anything little? Do tell me!
*Best Friend Forever Since Kindergarten. Yes, I know that the “Since Kindergarten” cancels out the “Forever”, but work with me here. ¬†Her brother is coincidentally one of the creators of the Hipstamatic and SwankoLab apps, which I used for these photos. Irony!
