Stuffie Appreciation Day

Hello there chaps, how the devil are you all. Now as lots of you know, our good friend T Bone Beasley has announced that today, 8th May, shall henceforth be National Stuffie Appreciation Day. Since we're in England, I think it's an international day.

Here's Cassidy posing with a few of her stuffed toys. Her head is about back to normal size after her day at the show on Monday.

A lot of her stuffed toys are actually Oscar's. Maybe some of his friends will recognise a few. Ma and pa saved Oscar's very favourite ones, and Cassidy had some others. She is actually a very good girl and is not a toy destroyer, so ma and pa are happy for her to play with his toys.



Now as most of my friends know, I'm not a fan of toys of any description, but in the name of friendship, I posed with the toys like a pro. Do you know though that ma has been asked twice this week while walking me if I'm real or a stuffed toy?!?!



We were both in a happy mood, so we were compliant in posing for a few more photos.


Don't quite know what's going on with Cassidy's feet in this photo, she looks quite silly!


And just to make you laugh, here's a photo which will shortly be going in the reject pile I should think!


Look after your stuffies well!

Hey Harry...
I think that was mighty big of you to pose with the stuffies...I'm sure they appreciate it! I can't believe people ask you if you are a stuffie...that's just silly!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Oh oui je vois que vous non plus vous ne manquez pas de doudous...

Bisous, Faya

You two are much nicer to your stuffies than we are! I, Poppy like to wrap my huge 'dale jaws around the really big ones and hump them to death. It's not a pretty sight, but Mom is usually laughing so hard that she can't hold the camera still to get a picture of me.

Aire-hugs,
Poppy & Penny

I think Cassidy must be practicing to be a ballarina. She has great turnout!

I like the goofy reject pile shot.

Persephone & Buster said...

COOL Stuffies!!!

But ya know what?

We take note of the unfortunate fact that your floor is too clean!

There's work to be done, here. International Stuffie Appreciation Day must be celebrated with cascades of mud and other noxious terrier-borne substances!

Still, you guys look awfully cute together...

Cheers,

Buster & Sephie

Koobuss said...

That is a very impressive collection of stuffies you have there. You should indeed be proud!!

Love your pictures, too. You guys are the cutest!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Simba said...

Look after your stuffies well?! Thats a strange idea. Stuffies are made to have very short lives.

Arabella said...

You guys are so good to your stuffies (even if you don't like them Harry). I always keep some stuffies in good order to carry to visitors as presents (and if I can't find any I use a shoe or a bottle).

Sniffs,
Arabella

Kirby said...

Hi Cassidy,

What great stuffies you have! I think it is wonderful that you get some of Oscar's old toys. You get to share what he loved. Woo hoo! Enjoy your stiffies and remember to always (well, almost always) treat them right.

Your pal,
Kirby

Agatha and Archie said...

We love all the pics and got a little chuckle over Cassidys feet!! love A+A

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Sophie Brador said...

It looks like you two are laughing in that last pic. Such happy pups! That's right Harry. I called you a pup!

Stanley said...

Harry Boy!

For not particularly loving any stuffies of your own, you were THE MAN on Internataional Stuffy Appreciation Day to pose with the stuffies. You and Cassidy are always smiling so big in your photos!

Of COURSE people think you're a stuffed animal! You have the BEST fuzzy face and you look so friendly and cuddly! I can see why they'd ask that.

Goober love & stuffy smooches,
Stanley

Peanut said...

harry Flash doesn't like toys much either but every once in awhile he will play with one. Do you never play with any?
