Love Those Cuddly animals Like They Were Your Own
I'm writing this on Christmas Day because I've just received another cuddly dog to add to my collection. Yep, I'm 47 years old and I still have a cuddly toy that I take to bed.
If I lost it, I would be devastated. It's a comfort thing. He was with me in Hospital when I was recovering from an attempt to take my own life. If I could take him with me everywhere, I would. But, I'm worried about losing him. So he only comes with me whilst I'm away from home. A night spent without him is unthinkable and I panic if I can't find him.
Am I ashamed to have him? No. He's now part of an ever increasing family and is a family private joke 😃
I've had my original dawgie, now for 20 odd years. I bought him in London from the Manhattan Toy Company. This is now known as Jellycats.
Still the same company, just a change of name.
