It's a bird! It's a plane! .. No, it's a "sheedopilope"???

That's right, people. My stuffed sock "weiner dog" is finished!!! Whooo hooooo!

And luckily it has turned out to be decidedly less pornographic. Hallelujah!

Unfortunately, it has also turned out to be less "dog". Sigh.

I don't know what happened ... I followed all the directions, I swear!

So I'm calling it a "wiener sheedopilope". (Pronounced "/shee dough pii lope/" as opposed to "/she do pee lope/" ... just sayin'. ;))

Anyway, take a gander ..... get ready to laugh she is.....

note: antlers, nose and Christmas sock sweater just to dress it up for the holidays. And not to cover really, really bad seam sewing on my part. Nope. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!! :)

hee hee ... isn't that a riot?!!

Okay, so, if you haven't figured it out already, here's the breakdown on the "sheedopilope" name.

I've found that if you put the ears up on this "sheedopilope" you've got what looks kinda like a pig...

ears up .... "oink oink"

Now if you put the ears down and move them forward a bit .... you get a sheep...

ears forward .... "baaaaaaa"

But if you pull the ears back like so .... and squint really hard ... and maybe have ingested like five margaritas ..... you get a dog.....

ears back, you drunk .... "arf arf"??

Yeah, even drunk, calling it a "dog" is just pushing it. We might have to revamp the name to just "sheepilope"! ;)

Ah, poor T1. I actually sent that off to baby Q just yesterday.

The bad news is ... it's not really infant-safe.

But the good news is ... it's not really infant-safe.

See? ... cuz now T1 has a legitimate excuse for just chucking it!

Because I'm clinging to the hope that really ... it's the thought that counts. Right?!

Right??? :)

Ah T1 ... you didn't think you were going to escape the Inappropriate Gift Giving By Kat to youngsters, did you?! If the gift isn't unsafe ... it's bound to be really, really messy and/or really, really loud! I figure since I can't be there in person to SAY inappropriate things .... I'll let the gifts do the talkin' for me!

Love ya! :)
