Once upon a time there was a little black dog named Sadie Rose, who had adopted a little, old, forgotten, stuffed animal Pooh Bear as her very own. Sadie LOVED her Pooh oh so much. Whenever she was allowed to come inside she would run and find her Pooh. She played with Pooh, took naps with Pooh, and gave kisses to Pooh. But as with the Velveteen Rabbit, "Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
So it was with Pooh Bear. Sadie's love is very zealous and a bit violent at times, and eventually he lost one of his eyes, and a little stuffing. But Pooh didn't give up so easily, he was quickly whisked off to the medical surgery, and in no time at all was back, with just a fancy a patch to testify of the accident.
P.S I also just realized that this was the 1500th post on this blog!!!! :)
