Ode to Puppy

Posted on

Not a puppy. Puppy, the toy that Pickles gutted on their first day together.

Puppy was a good toy, a loyal toy, never failing to squeak. Pickles and Puppy had the same yellow coat, brown-tipped tail and floppy ears. She loved to take Puppy outside to shake around in the dirt.

But today, Puppy has had it. There’s no more stuffing to give, no more seams to rip. Puppy’s gone to the big toy box in the sky. Or to landfill.

Choose whichever ending gives the most comfort.

In memoriam: Puppy, 12/2012-3/2013. We got our money’s worth out of every bit of the $5 you cost.

My name is Pickles, and I'm a Great American Mutt. I like just about everything, including a good nap!

  1. I want to post something in Pickles’ defense but just can’t think of anything. Sometimes she just loves her toys to death.

  2. So sad. Puppy will not be easily replaced. Go slowly with Pickles; let her take the time to adjust. I will think of the dear departed one.
