So, “Puppy” is to Spencer what NeNe is to Maxwell – his lovey, his main squeeze, his most prized possession. We try very hard to not let Puppy leave Spencer’s room. When he gets up in the morning we always make him put Puppy back in the bed and he does it with no complaints. But, he’s also known to sneak into his room and reach through the rails of his crib to grab his beloved Puppy from time to time! Sometimes you just need a little lovin’ from your lovey, you know?
Last week we were out in the yard and poor Spencey was having a rough time with itchy, allergy eyes and just a case of the all-overs (ever get those?). He disappeared inside and, next thing I knew, he proudly walked outside with Puppy hanging from his mouth. Stinker. All I could think about was poor Puppy getting covered in grass and pollen so I snatched it out of his mouth to take back inside. This is what Spencer did when I took his favorite buddy away…
Poor guy. What did I do? I gave in of course.
As I said, sometimes you just need a little lovin’ from your lovey and Puppy can always be washed.
ps – yes, we call him “Puppy”. We didn’t get real original with the naming this go around! 🙂
