Mommy's Surprise, by Dexter

Today, Mommy went shopping with one of her people friends.  When she got home, she was all excited and said she had a surprise.  She said it was for Daddy, but I would like it too.

I noticed Mommy painting this little wooden thing, but I could not get a very good look at it.  She promised to show it to me when she was all done and it was dry.

Turns out, Mommy was painting something for Daddy to take and sit on his desk, to remind him of me!  Here is what Mommy made....

It is a little mini Dexter!!!  I was so excited I wanted to carry him around in my mouth, but Mommy said it was for looking, not for touching.
So, I just looked.  He is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.  I guess I better behave myself, or Mommy might replace me with one of these little guys for herself.

Who am I kidding, there is no way this mini me is as cuddly as I am, and I know I give way better kisses!

Oh and Mommy wanted to remind you all that there are just a couple of days left to enter the Crochet Kitty giveaway.  These toys are so fun, I always try to steal Nora's!  Get more info and enter the contest here.

Oh Dexter,

That wooden pup is nice and your mom did a wonderful job making it but you is much cuter, for sure!

Woofs and Licks,

It DOES bend! It was so cute I could not pass it up. It was in the kids' craft section of Michael's, it is their own brand called Creatology. It was so fun to paint!

That is sooooo cute! Your mom did a great job of making it look just like you too. I wish we could find cute stuff like that around here.
