Searching – RUSS? 70′s WINSTON & DOOBIE Beige DOGS and 80s Standing WHITE LAMB

Rex is still looking for this lamb.

Custom Stuffed Vintage White Wooly Standing LambRex says the lamb in this photo is something like his, but his had closer cropped hair and the eyes were glass buds. No tongue was visible and the legs were thin but stiff. The Lamb – who had no tag and went by Lammie as far as I was concerned – was a little white lamb with blue eyes and mine kind of twisted a little so the legs didn’t quite line up. The lamb would be from 1983-5, and had short, nappy, white hair.

Thanks to one of our Fabulous Finders we now have a photo of Winston and of Dooby, and the dogs have been found.

70's RUSS Big Head Cream Dog

I am looking for two dogs and a lamb from my childhood. These were my favorite – not that we like to have favorites – friends growing up. The dogs were my mum’s before they were mine and would have been from the late 70′s.

When I was 17 my step-father threw them out by accident. The two dogs, Winston and Doobie, had tags that read as much, and they were off-white or beige and had heads that were as long as the rest of them. Doobie was the little one. Sorry, but I don’t think I have any photos.

When I get sad I miss them very much to this day, and if someone could help me it would mean a tremendous amount to me to have my old friends around.

Searching – RUSS? 70′s WINSTON & DOOBIE Beige DOGS and 80s Standing WHITE LAMB — 22 Comments

  1. 013009-1 We need to know when you grew up. what decade or year did you get them. What size were the animals. What they were made of. thanks

  2. I grew up in the 80′s, so the dogs were from the late 70s when they were given to my mum, and the lamb is from 1983-86 or so. They were a soft cloth with no length to the fur, really; the lamb was of a nappy white woven cloth.
    Thanks!

    The lamb, is it standing on 4 feet or sitting position? What is approximate height or length? Any hooves or not? If yes, what color are they? Winston and Doobie could possibly be Russ Berrie from late 70s. This company likes to name their stuffed animals on their silk tags. Take a look at this 70s Puff Puff, does the font and type of tag similar to yours? eBay: 220300284072.

  4. Thanks for all the help! I think they were Russ, come to think of it, especially as the tag was like that. As for the Lamb, she was standing, with no hooves, and she was about 20cm long. Blessings, and thanks!

    Honestly do not think this is the lamb but may be similar and we can get a working picture to help identify Lammie.

  7. No, the legs were long and stiff, and were the torso not ever so slightly tilted she could easily stand.

    You’re welcome on the dogs. Sorry I didn’t have better luck with the lamb. Will keep it in mind as time goes on.

  9. I just bought both of them! I cannot wait more, and it makes a perfect, albeit two days early, birthday gift for myself! I cannot thank you enough for returning such wonderful memories to me; I had to explain to my office mates why I had to wipe my eyes this morning and I hope to do the same when each arrives! God bless you, especially on this wonderful Feast!

    Glad we could help! I think you waited plenty long enough. May you have many more misty eyed good mornings! Happy Birthday!

    Oh say, I was curious, BTW, if your lamb might have played music, because I found some similar looking musical lambs on ebay.
