FOUND – 2001 Manhattan LARGE RAGTAIL DOG Named CLARENCE Top Priority
When my wife was young, she was very sick, and her parents ended up getting her a stuffed dog while she was in the hospital. This stuffed animal is very important to her, since it got her through a very rough time. She has mentioned before that the name on the dog’s tag is “Clyde Dog Small” (turned out to be Clarence) and she always figured there must be a Clyde Dog Big out there, too.
I contacted the company who made it, Manhattan Toys, and they confirmed that they did at one time make a larger size. Sadly, my wife is very sick again, and I know finding this toy would help to lift her spirits and would really mean a lot to her.
I’m so sorry it has taken me this long to get back to you on this, as things have been a little crazy the past few weeks. I was able to get a photo and the year that is on the tag. She got the dog while she was in the hospital for about 4 months in high school, so it’s not that old, The tag said 2001. He is a light brown/tan dog with floppy ears and a long floppy arms. He sits upright on his hind legs and the are beans in the feet and bottom to keep him stationary. He has big eyebrows and little black eyes.
Thanks again for your help and your understanding on the lag in response. If anyone can help me find it, I would be extremely grateful. Thanks for any and all help!

I wrote him again, asked about his wife, and asked that he send the description and age.
Could the name be Clarence instead of Clyde?
Does the dog have a vest and a mustache? Which size is considered the 'small' size? I may have one. Also, are you positive it was the 'manhattan toy' company that made it?
You'll have to contact us so we can connect you with Ian!
I was hoping there would be a picture soon. I hesitate to contact the person when I am not totally sure that I have the right toy. Has anyone heard from him again?
I'll try contacting Ian again. Thanks for reminding me.
If I would have known it was Clarence, I would have saved one for you. This one has been listed nearly a week now, ends soon.

It couldn't be helped Tami, so don't feel bad about it. Ian knows about your auction listing.
Congrats Ian, sending the dog tomorrow. My son wanted to sell him because it was such a cute dog, and deserved to be loved.
So was it Clarence or Clyde? Should we stop searching for the 'big clyde' version?
Evidently they were wrong about it being Clyde, but I won't change the post to FOUND until they have it in hand, and they're sure it's the right one.
