How Old is That in Stuffed Animal Years?

This beloved family member, Green Doggy, has been sick on and off for the past couple of weeks, according to my three year old daughter.  Today I learned why.  Turns out he’s 31 years old.  This also according to my three year old daughter.  He was “won” at a carnival so for all I know she could be right. 

Green Doggy has suffered many hardships over the past two years.  He survived countless nights stuffed under pillows.  He stoically endured several accidental lobotomies at the hands of his overeager caretaker.  Through it all he’s been the very essence of quiet dignity and courage in the face of adversity. 

So it is with a heavy heart that I receive this news of Green Doggy’s advanced age.  Let us hope that he can live out his final days in comfort and in the presence of those he loves.  Let us also take comfort in the knowledge that where ever he goes next, he probably wont have to worry about having a two year old pull the stuffing out of his head.
