Lucy & Her Hedgehog

Lucy has had her hedgehog toy now for almost 9 years.  How can that be?  I can't believe it hasn't been lost or at least destroyed. Lucy constantly cleans/grooms it while treating it with great care.  I wish I had a photo of her as a puppy with it. But if you can believe this, I took few pictures of my girls when they were puppies.  I know that is hard to imagine.  Of course it was before digital and I didn't like wasting film and I suppose I thought they would be puppies forever.  Now I wish I had done different.

Bless, Lucy's hedgehog is her baby. Lulu has several toys, but some are firm favourites, like her sausage dog, it's been re-stitched several times now, but it's still the one she wants first!

It's the one thing I really love about blogging - it really encourages you to take photos of these precious little lives.

I have had several dogs who had a special toy they loved. When they died, I always had it cremated with them.

Good job Lucy!

I can understand what you mean with the puppy pictures. My family had a Golden Retriever/chow mix who passed away in 2007 at the age of 14. I think we only had a few puppy pictures of her, and I always felt bad about that. It's so much easier these days to get pictures of our pets.
