I went grocery shopping one Saturday and since I needed to get doggy treats, I stopped to look at the doggy toys. I found a nice-sized plush Lamb Chop. I grew up with Lamb Chop and have always loved her so I couldn’t resist buying it. I figured if Andre didn’t want her, I’d keep her for myself. Andre always watches as I unpack the groceries just in case I have something for him. I took out Lamb Chop and handed her to him and to my surprise, he grabbed her and trotted off to the great room, just like a child would have.
He played with her off and on all weekend, he mostly likes to play tug-of-war with me. Well, that Monday morning before going to work I had to stitch up a seam in one of Lamb Chop’s legs. Yes, already.
It’s been a week now and Lamb Chop has become an amputee. Since the thread didn’t hold up and she lost her leg, I decided to use duct tape to patch her up. Andre doesn’t like the feel/taste of the duct tape, but that doesn’t keep him from playing with her.
Well, three weeks later I had to toss Lamb Chop out. Andre was pulling all her stuffing out – it was everywhere. I’m trying to decide if I want to go get another one just for me.
