Thursday Throwing It Back for a Happy Thing





I was 12 weeks old when my Mommys adopted me. I was the size of a football and a little under 9 pounds. That hardly seems possible now, huh?

This sock monkey (Socky) was my first toy and I guess you can tell it was my favorite. I could not go anywhere without it. I slept with Socky, played with Socky, stared at Socky. . . you get the picture. One day Socky was no more. It was almost a year later and his squeaker was gone as was most of his stuffing. When his second arm came off, well it was time to retire him to the toy farm. I missed him a lot. I looked for him for a very very long time.

To make me feel better, Mommy bought me a larger Sock Monkey toy which I still have. But it was not the same as Socky. I missed him SO. 

That is until Mommy got me the ultimate SOCK MONKEY -

I have seen these before and think they are sooo cute BUT BECAUSE I live with to heathens who PEE on dog beds, Mom says I , Stella Rose can never have anything nice. Even my first toy, Baby Bear, had to be put away cos they are mean to her.
You are so lucky.

Some toys are just loved too much for too long to survive. Glad you got a new sock monkey.
