Meet my stuffies

May 8 /08


7 a.m. Today is Stuffy Appreciation Day. Ordinarily, I'm not allowed to play with stuffies because I like to eat them. Ever since I ate Papa's socks last year and got a really bad tummy ache, Mama's been a little fussy about what I play with. But for this occasion, she rescued a few stuffies from the pet store and gave them a home.
Now I'm playing with them under supervision. I don't like supervision. Mama's just sitting here watching me try to rip their heads off. Geez, can't a dog have his privacy while he chokes on wooly eyeballs and swallows toxic substances and gets stuffing all twisted up in his gut?

So this is my gang: KweenKittayKat, FunkyMonkey, LoonyRaccoony and Bob the Ball. We're giving them a temporary foster home, though. Just before they're shredded beyond recognition, they will move on to another home, but I don't know where ... maybe the garbage can.

Anyway, if I was a stuffy, I think I'd rather sit on a store shelf than be torn to pieces by a wild, dribbling dog.

They really DO deserve our appreciation.


I really do appreciate you guys. CHOMP.

I'm a little partial to Loony. I could yank his eyes out and swallow him whole if Mama would give me a little more time with him. He squeaks when I bite him so I think he likes me too. Funky wants to be BFF with Bob. See how he's clinging to him? My entourage has gotten a little cliquey except for KweenKittayKat. She's a snob and likes to sprawl all by herself. Typical cat. But it doesn't matter. I don't think I could bite a girliestuffy anyway.

Down the hatch you go, Loony ... Mama stepped in right about here because Loony was about to take the long route to the poopy bag, just like Papa's socks did ... or worse: get tied in a knot around my liver.

4 p.m. Well my stuffies have disappeared. Frankly, they didn't look too good when I saw them last. But wherever they are, they know that I really did appreciate them today.

You don't eat the stuffies, just kill them a little bit. Humans always stop you just as it get interesting.

Hehehehe, you made me and my human laugh at loud lots with your stuffie appreciation! By the way! Happy National Stuffie Appreciation! It was sure nice of your mom to let you have to supervised time with the stuffies! Did you know there are some stuffies out there that lions can't even kill! Go to The toys are call tuff toys. That's where Larry is from. He's rated a 7. Maybe those stuffies could survive the wrath of Chef!

Heheh! Go Chef!

All good stuffies go to stuffy heaven. Afer of course they have been ripped to shreds and disemboweled.

Hey Chef, Sorry to hear you are a stuffy killer. I just massage my stuffies, and they love me back my not exploding all over the place. It was a different story when I was young. I never got stuffies when I was a wee one. I think I may one have been a stuffy killer too. Funny, I don't remember going into rehab at all.

Hey Chef,
Those are some very cool stuffies. We have TONS of stuffies in containers. Mama doesn't let us have all of them at once. She said the entire floor space would be covered with them & there would be no room to walk, hmmmmmph. We really appreciate our stuffies, we lick them to clean them & we really don't tear them apart either.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
