On any given day, you can find deep within the closets, sofa cushions and laundry hampers of our home, stuffed animals hidden by our dog, Daisy. These critters, originally belonging to Bob, have been adopted by Daisy and now rest in various stages of “broken in.”
Stage 1: Licked until soggy, then sun and or mud dried until crunchy.
Stage 2: Pointy parts (noses, tails, feet) nibbled on down to the fabric.
Stage 3: Thin strands of stuffing delicately peeking through one tiny hole in the fur.
Stage 4: Eyes missing.
Stage 5: Full disembowelment and strewn stuffing carnage.
The final stage takes place in the backyard and although it is generally 6th in the order, in the manner of cause and effect it would be more appropriately labeled Stage 4-1/2.
Final Stage: The poos have eyes. You heard me.
Picture that image in your mind’s eye.
Because I love you, I will not provide a photo. You’re welcome.
