Dot's Back!

Last week I was so sad that Dot, one of my favorite friends, had passed from this world. Her bright red light passed into darkness as Mom tried to resuscitate her with hardy whacks on the side of her house.

Mom said her battery died, and then she was gone. Mom carelessly tossed her onto the couch. I watched as Dot slipped between the sofa cushions, where so many good toys have gone to die. I tried so hard to dig her out, with my hindquarters raised high in the air, as I didn't want her to slip from our memories too. Luckily I managed to save her from her tight fabric prison.

This weekend Mom came back from her errands with a renewed sense of hope.

"Look Finny, I got Dot some new batteries!" Mom said as she rooted around the couch looking for Dot. Lucky I had saved her or Cod only knows how long it would have taken Mom to find her.

Next thing I knew Mom had ripped the door off of Dot's home and was scooping out her guts like a surgeon. She slapped in the new guts and put the door back on and... nothing.

"Darn Dot! What the heck? Lemme try this again..." Mom said as she opened Dot's door again and dug in for a second time. "CLEAR!" She yelled out as she she shut Dot's door. A couple more whacks and...

Dot Lives!

Her red spot was once again sassy and bright. It was a small miracle which I then chased around the den. I'm so glad you're back my old elusive friend.

Hooray for Dot! If we sent our Dot over, do you think your mum could resuscitate her? She was drowned in a glass of juice by our 2 year old nephew. HMPH!

I'm not so sure about Dot. Her cousin "red bug" sure teased me a lot and wouldn't let me catch her. Not once.

So not fair.

I'd loved to have seen you with your bum in the air trying to rescue Dot. Glad you've got your toy back.

Whooo Hooooo Dot is back. We have a Dot here too and she is the best. They must be cousins. So glad Mom brought her some innards so that she could dance around again. Take care.

Thank goodness Dot is back!

Jack's dot died too. Mom threw it away, thinking he had so much illness surely he wouldn't want to play. Well, now the vet says he has plenty of life left, so Mom better get a new dot.

Glad to see Dot is back. You are a true heroine Fin, saving Dot from the maws of the couch. Ours eats toys too.

Kea said...

Whew, we're glad Dot's back! We have a lot of Dots in the house...the mom usually can't find batteries so ends up buying another Dot! Annie used to love it to chase her, and Derry loves her too. Most of the time Nicki can't see the fuss and ignores her, though.

You were brilliant, Fin, with your heroic efforts to save Dot from suffocating in the couch cushions.

We are glad Dot's new guts have given her a new lease of life. It would have been so sad to lose such a treasured friend.
