The mooshy belly bear I made? Turns out my nephew wasn't the only one in the house who loved it. The dogs did too.
And you might notice the past tense there.
My sister and brother-in-law have two large dogs, a lab mix and a pitbull, both of which like to chew things, especially my nephew's toys if they get their teeth on 'em. Well, apparently my nephew loved the bear so much that he was carrying him around everywhere... and left him where the dogs could get him. I can't blame the kid; he's not even one yet. And I'm flattered he was so in love with it.
So I made him another one that I'm giving him tomorrow with his Beatnik Bob and the book & finger puppets.
One more mooshy belly bear, headed for my nephew!
