Andy's Toy

We have gotten a couple of questions about the toy Andy is playing with in his "tummy tag" picture. We have been wanting to make a post about that toy so now is as good of a time as any! Maybe you remember in a previous post, Mom had called a toy a donkey but when she found the packaging, she realized it was a fox. Even then we told you Mom is pretty silly because a donkey does not look anything like a fox. Mom says her excuse was it was brown and had long legs. You tell us ...



Anyway, that lead to Mom always calling the toy Fox-that-is-not-a-donkey. She decided that was too much to say so she thought about F(ox-that-is-not-a-d)onkey and decided to call it Fonkey. (Control yourselves out there. She IS our Mom.)

Well, Andy loved to play with that toy but Sammy decided that Fonkey was his replacement for poor Red Bear who is still around but is only a shell of his former self. Since Sammy doesn't play with lots of toys, Mom usually lets him have one if he picks it out.

To make it up to Andy, Mom went to get another toy. She wanted to buy a Stinky but Petsmart only had the fox. (Here are the different ones in the series. This is just a site Mom found that shows all of the toys. It is not an endorsement for the site.) This is Foxy. He is the plush fox. You can tell because he has black legs.



So now we have Fonkey and Foxy and, guess what, Sammy wants them both. Mom spends most the time taking one away from Sammy and letting Andy have it. Roxie just ignores the whole process.



And, yes, Fonkey's face is a little chewed up. We have been working on him. He is already missing his squeakers.

Fonkey is funny. My mom thought it was a good name for that fox-donkey.

I like the name 'Fonkey'. Thank you for your visit and for your Dachsie thoughts and prayers for my mother. It is much appreciated.

Hi, guys. I think Fonkey has had a hard time! but that means you like it so much, right? I don't know how is like to share my toys because I don't have doggies around me to do that but I don't like when my mom takes one from me. I want her to give it to me back soon!!
Have a nice day!

Fonky and Fox look like great toys! Emmy chews the ears and noses off all out toys so they all look pretty weird.

PS: We met the bipeds who own the new dachsie Zim told you about. He is called a "Piebald" Dachsie. We knew there were piebald Siberians, but not Dachsies!

Fonkey ... it sounds like something out of a rock song or something. Funny! Roxie is smart of keep clear of any toy issues. I bet she is too "good" to "play with toys."
