Rachel is still looking for this dog. After researching more, she has learned that the dog is a “Dayton Hudson” brand and identical material to the PJ Huckabee bear that was sold in Marshall Fields in 1994. It was 16 inches tall and came with either white or golden fur. All bears and puppies came with a plaid ribbon around the neck.
We lost a GOLDEN BROWN family favorite stuffed dog in a Florida airport in 1996. The dog was originally bought at Marshall Fields in Chicago during Christmastime in about 1994.
We THINK it is a “BEST FRIENDS” brand dog. It came with a purple plaid bow around the neck and a tag with the poem:
“I’m especially soft to hug, so hold me tight and snug! On me you can depend, I’ll be your true best friend!”
It was approximately 18″ long with floppy ears, a curled tail and curly fur. At the same time, we bought a smaller (approx. 8-10″), but identical dog.
We are not looking for the EXACT dog that we owned, but for the past couple of years we have been looking for a similar animal. At the time, Marshall Fields sold these dogs in 3 sizes (the largest MAYBE about 3′ long) and in 2 colors (golden and white).’
