Tami is a genius! It is the right dog, but fluffier than the one we used to fight over. I did the buy it now. Let’s hope it arrives safe!! If you could pass on my thanks to Tami and of course thanks to you,
I am looking for a small ginger brown dog with a few beans in the body. It must have been from 1984 or there abouts. We did not have money, so it could have easily come from the late 70’s, as most of our toys were second hand.
It had barely stuffed feet and head, which made it floppy. It had a small tail like an unstuffed “D” shape the same colour as the body. It had a beige muzzle, and I believe the bottoms of its paws were beige, too. It had a face shaped a bit like Snoopy. The nose was plastic, but coated in that fake leather stuff. It was black and oval shaped.
It had “cartoony” blue eyes. The eyes were flat like buttons, but oval shaped and they had a blue colour with a black dot in the middle and white round the edge.
It was similar material to a Dakin Fozzie Bear we used to have, but not shaggy. It had floppy ears (again a bit like Snoopy), which were brown on the tops and beige underneath. I think it had a red cotton smile at one point, but the mouth did not open. I’ve shown Martin some Drooper dogs, and he says that it’s close, but definitely not that dog.
My sister and I used to fight over this dog. Eventually I was forced to let her have it, and she left it on a train somewhere! My sister always got her own way, and, just because I wanted the dog, she did. She screamed and naturally got her own way!
I asked her about it, and she does not even remember what I am talking about!
I would like to try and find one again, so I can show it to her and have one again. I have never seen another one since on eBay, bootsales or jumble sales –
just want to recall some happy memories (of fighting over silly stuff!!)
Any help would be appreciated.
