LAMBIE

R's mom recently bought two really cool stuffed animals for Button -- one's a horse, who we named "Franklin" and the other is a lamb, who we call "Lambie" (okay, so we weren't very original with that one). For some reason I can't quite explain, I've had the urge to sleep with Lambie every night. Anyway...

Last night, in the middle of the night, we both woke up and heard our dachshund, Otto, making all sorts of noise and he was definitely chewing on something. In one second flat, I realized Lambie was missing from the bed and jumped up to save her. I took her from Otto and boy, was I upset! I tried to let it go and just go back to sleep, but I couldn't.

So, I did what any mom would do (or maybe not)... I got out my sewing kit and performed surgery on Lambie. She needed quite a few stiches in her leg, chest, and face. I'm quite skilled at stuffed animal sutures, so Lambie is good as new! Thank heavens I was able to save her.
