Keandre is our resident puppy. He has one of those stuffed animal backpacks with a 'leash' for Mommy or Daddy to hold, and it is one of his favorite possesions! Of course, maybe that is because I have never put it on him and actually used it to keep track of him.
We aquired this particular item when he found it at our favorite consignment store. He dragged it all over the place until it was so filthy I offered to buy it before they could suggest that it was now my responsibility to purchase it. That way I felt kind and gracious, you know? ;) After all, it's not my fault they're floors were so dirty....
Keandre likes to put on his teddy backpack, complete with 'leash' and talk his big brother and sister into playing puppy with him. If they are not available, he approaches me with his sad puppy-dog eyes (pun not intended) and says, "Mommy, no one is pulling me!" Ah, sweet boy. I will pull you.
On the subject of puppies, I have to mention one of my favorite children's books, by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee. The illustrations are by Kadir Nelson. Amazing!
