Lamb Chop

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.

  1. LOL, I’m surprised Lamb Chop lasted a whole week! I’ve learned to buy dog toys that don’t have stuffing. It’s interesting how our furry family members just seem to know that you have something for them. I’ve been practicing mental telepathy with my dog (yes, I’m nuts) but I actually think it works 🙂


  2. Oh you should buy another one or two one for each of you. I found one in a truck stop about 7 or 8 years ago on the way home from a band job we stopped for breakfest and their she was, had to have her. When Abby turned a year old I gave it to her and she still has it.
