This stupid dog (the toy dog, not the fur dog) has been in our family now since just before Jaxon was born. A friend gave it to us.
We didn’t give it to Jaxon until he was about 6 months old and I only let him have it in his cot. Which meant that some mornings instead of hearing Jaxon start making noises, I heard this dog start talking.
“You’re my friend, I love you!”
“Yellow, Yellow foot”
“Hand. Green Hand!”
“Itsy bitsy spider ran up the water spout…..”
This was how I knew when Jaxon was awake in his cot but not crying.
