Big Dog and Little Dog

May 29, 2016

Meet Big Dog and Little Dog.

Two stuffed animals at our house really needed baths this week. D and M eagerly soaped them up and dunked them in the wash tub. All six animals ended up getting thoroughly bathed: Caterpillar, Caterpillar, Horse, Cow, Big Dog, and Little Dog.

I can’t mock the names. As a child, I named two of my teddy bears “Little Ted” and “Huge Ted.”

All six hung on the clothesline for a few days to dry. It’s always very humid here, and unfortunately, the past few days have been even more humid, raining most of the time. Caterpillar, Caterpillar, Horse, and Cow are dry by now. Big Dog started to reek yesterday, so John rinsed him and hung him in the sun all day yesterday. Little Dog is almost dry enough to be allowed back inside, but he wants to keep Big Dog company.

Big Dog is almost dry. D and M check or ask us every few hours if Big Dog is dry yet.

Big Dog and Little Dog are currently enjoying the afternoon sitting on a wicker chair in the sun.

If this sunning doesn’t work, Big Dog may have to get new stuffing. These two dogs hail from my older sister’s childhood and have migrated here from the U.S., so I’ll feel pretty bad if we have to give Big Dog a stuffing transplant. Better than having a Dog get moldy.

Dry, Dog, dry!

    It’s OK–That sister’s childhood teddy previously received a stuffing transplant, and he was better than new.

    Thanks for keeping us updated on the whole family including the stuffed animals.
    We are enjoying camping this season again. Our camping is a little like the way you live all the time. Praying for your good health and strength and fruit upon your ministry.
