Thanks to one of our readers, we now know that this is a Best Made Toys dog.
Rebecca needs the PURPLE version of this dog, but if anyone finds it in another color please let us know.
I’m looking for an iridescent, almost shiny in the light, large purple stuffed dog. He is very floppy and has a big brown nose, but not a big pink tongue sticking out (my mistake). He only has a small black smile. The inside of his ears are white, and he also had a big white spot over one eye and a short tail.
Purple puppy was won by my husband at World’s of Fun in a carnival area. It was wearing a tag, but he was a carnival prize, so I don’t believe he was any known brand. I think that may be why we have been unable to find him for sale on eBay. We also look at garage sales for a duplicate and occasionally on Craigslist.
Purple puppy was given to me by my husband on our first date. After my daughter was born it accompanied her everywhere she went. When she was one month old, they discovered her intestines were malrotated, and she had surgery. Purple puppy was kept in her crib at Children’s Mercy Hospital. She does not remember the surgery, but we have pictures, and purple puppy was given a lot of credit by Taylor for “helping her feel better after surgery.”
When Taylor was 3 1/2 years old, she experienced intense stomach cramps, and we returned to the hospital. Somehow, possibly because of the scar tissue from the first surgery, her spleen had turned over in her abdomen and constricted itself. They removed her spleen. Purple puppy was clenched in my daughter’s arms during the entire hospital stay and during her recovery. She contributes her recovery to purple puppy.
Purple puppy is talked about all the time in our house. He was accidentally left in the Holiday Inn Express in Omaha, NE. I called them 3 days after we returned home, hoping he would turn up in our luggage, and they said they had not found him. I called several more times with no avail. Purple puppy has now been missing for over a year.
I did purchase a similar dog on eBay that was brown. But, he has not replaced purple puppy for her. We continually look for a similar dog on eBay.
Any help to replace my 6 year old daughter’s favorite purple plush dog would be extremely appreciated! Any advice as to any websites that would be a good place to search would also be appreciated!
I LOVE your website! And think it is an excellent way to help others who would do anything for their kids.
Thank you for any help,
