Sage's Toy Graveyard
When Sage was a puppy, I was thrilled when she expressed interest in her toys. I had so much fun going to the pet store and picking out squeaky toys that looked like animals. It made me laugh seeing her walking around with stuffed porcupines, ducks, butterflies, pelicans, skunks, and even squirrels! Sage loves her toys! You could almost say that she loves them to death...
Because of the speed at which Sage is able to skin, gut, and extract the squeaky...I have been forced to work on my sewing skills and I'm proud to say that I've gotten pretty proficient. However, as school work has piled up, so have Sage's dead toys.
Finally, as Sage's toy basket supply became dreadfully low, I decided it was time to pull out the needle and thread.
While I performed surgery after surgery, Sage was nearby pacing back and forth eager to reunite with her favorite toys. Here are some before pictures. Beware, they're a bit graphic...
Some toys needed only minor patching...
...but there were some that were beyond repair!
It was difficult being the one making all the tough choices, but we got through it.
And now her toy basket is overflowing!
The only problem is...she's at it again.
