Welcome the newest member of my gang. The Beaver. Shiny coat, big flat tail - could be fun.
I thought it was time I introduce you to my Gang. I asked Mom to gather them all together for a group photo. I admit - not everyone made the photo - Mr. Hedgehog, Froggy and the football are still in the basket - oh well.
When we moved to NYC 3 years ago - Mom thought I had outgrown the childish notion of "toy pets" and somehow my buddies didn't make it in the packup. WHAT WAS SHE THINKING!!! Fortunately our new neighbors across the hall set Mom straight and started my new collection.
First up - My favs. "Teddy". He's a lobster Mom brought back from her travels to Boston. - And Yes - we named him for the Senator. He makes a "plop plop plop" noise - like he's sinking in water---a big pot of boiling water - (Did I mention Mom loves her Lobster Rolls!)
My Current #1 - Squirrel Man. He has a velco belly so you can replace a dead squeeky!
"Harvey" - yep - Jimmy Stewart fans here. You always need a Harvey in your house.
Next is "Kenne". He's not really a dog toy - Mom picked him up at The Colony in Kennebunkport, ME.
He quickly lost his nose. Oops. (Mom doesn't know - but I saw her cut off the nose - I think she was afraid I might eat it - please - unless it was coated in BACON I doubt it would have been an issue!)
"MOOOOOOSE". And yes - you have to say it that way. Kind of goofy - just like a moose. Gee, think Mom's got a thing for Maine & New England....I see a theme here...
"Mallory" - I know - girl name, boy duck. Give me a break - I'M A DOG!!! I like to take Mallory for walks - but Mom makes me leave her with the doorman.
"Rupert" - because he's a Fox!
Now it's time to get that "new" stink off of the Beaver. Can you tell I'm not trilled this turned into a Kodak Moment!
The big flat tail comes in handy when trying to swallow the entire head of a beaver!
Now I just need to come up with a name. Mom picked him up in New Jersey - I was thinking "Frankie" as in Frankie Valli, Jersey Boy. Any suggestions?
