This little armadillo/possum (I never could figure out which it is supposed to be) was a gift from my sister, "Aunt Kathy," to Darby shortly after Darby came to live with us. The creature made one of it first appearances on the blog here.

It's making a reappearance today because yesterday morning Darby rooted around in the toy basket in our bathroom, grabbed the armadillo/possum (for the first time in a very long time) and ran downstairs with it. Here it is, more than three years after we received it, just a little worse for wear.
Both dogs are relentless chewers of bones, sticks, paper, and cardboard, but they just don't destroy stuffed animals.
Read that and weep, oh you owners of Golden and Labrador Retrievers!
