Here’s news from one of our long time mailing list folks who has been looking for this pig.
Upon getting your email that there was a Pierre Pig on eBay, I did not hesitate and just clicked on “Buy Now”… My plan is to give it to Gracie for her 5th birthday, which is July 10th. It is not a replacement for Pig, but hopefully a successor who can carry on until… who knows? I’ve even given her this book about “Threadbare Companions“.
(We still have a mailing list of people looking for this pig in all sizes!)
My daughter Gabriella Grace (Gracie to me…) was given her friend “Pig” by her “fairy” godmother when she was just 9 months old. It has been her closest and most loved friend, but as such is much the worse for wear. “Pig” has never had any other name, and was joined by Manhattan Toy’s Tiptoes Bunny, Cow and Horse in the vain attempt to slow down time, and has been not too delicately patched by her maternal Nana.
Sadly, I don’t see Gracie or Pig as often as I’d like, since she lives in Alabama with her Mom, who remarried.
Thank you so much for your assistance, and please let me know if I can reciprocate your kindness and service in any way.
