These days are a bit different. Blue Lambie still lives in the toy box and comes out to play but his legs are missing as is an ear and both eyes. White Dog has learned that sometimes when rescue dogs discover toys they enjoy them so much that the stuffie is loved to pieces...literally.
White Dog is generous and has always shared the toys in the toy box that were hers. Over time, the toys have become more communal in ownership but every so often I see the Little White Dog of My Heart quietly pick up Blue Lambie or Baby Bear (when the others are off doing raucous things), cuddle for a second before hiding the toy deep in the bottom of the box.
