Jessie's Baby

It's Funny Friday

Jessie & her "Sucky Baby"

We don't know how this began but shortly after we adopted Jessica (Jessie for short) she was rummaging in their toy box.  M&D had bought this moose for Molly Brown but it was a bit too big and Molly is so shy that she never touched it.  Enter Jessie...

One day Jessie pulled Moose out of the box and began sucking on it.  We never could figure out why but she is very quiet and content with "Baby", yes we changed its name and she knows her by that name.

Jessie never forgets where she left Baby and she will not bring her to you or play rough with her.  When Baby gets really nasty we throw her in the washing machine - so far they can withstand 2 washes before having to be replaced.  Mom counted and we think this is Baby #12.  We always have one in reserve, just in case...and when M&D come home from being out the girls are always waiting, they have their "hoopla", get a doggy treat and then Jessie runs to get Baby.  She doesn't bring her to them but jumps up in the chair and starts sucking.  Molly Brown wants more attention and then a good butt rub - this is the routine.
Don't you just love Snoopy?
And we have exciting news - there is a new teddy bear blog in town....  Mr. Sweet Pea, Blossom,  and Sissy Bear over at

Mr. Sweet Pea
I know the gang would love for you to drop in and visit.  Maybe even become a follower.  I have an idea that they will have beary fun & interesting adventures to share.  (o:

See you next Friday.
Heaps of Hugs


  1. Dear Prudence,
    Jessie, looks as though she treats "baby" as a dummy. Poor Jessie she just needs lots of cuddles. Do you give her cuddles Prudence? She looks a lovely, faithful big black
    dog.May be you could brush her for you Mum, although her coat is short. I think the trick is just to love her heaps.

  2. Sweet Jessie!!
    Such a lovely story,my dog has a Winnie the Pooh ( ok without ears)
    always beside him!

    Dogs are great!!!!

  3. That story is just the ticket on this wet, blustery Friday in January. Have a beary happy weekend.

  4. Precious Jessie! It's a good thing you have a baby in reserve. Wow! You're on no. 12. In the pictures you can tell how much she loves her baby. Pearlene has a favorite toy too. We have never been able to find a replacement. The toy is on it's last legs.

    I love your pictures today and the editing on the last picture of Jessie is adorable!


  5. Ahhhhhhhhh that could have been the story of my dog. She has her own toy-box and her favorite toys are a bear and a mouse!!! How cute. I love to see Jessie's photo's. Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend, Thea xxxx

  6. Hi Prudence,
    We love seeing Jessie with her baby. She's so cute. We went to visit with Sissy and Mr. Sweet Pea. Thanks for pointing us in their direction. M was having trouble with blogger and your blog was one of the ones we couldn't leave a message on, well.. Ta...da...problem fixed. M posted a little while ago and Sampson got to be in the pictures. We told her we were available but she said Sampson was the perfect size to sit on the doll's lap. He's the perfect size for so many laps and he's a good little bear so we're not jealous. Okay, maybe a little bit jealous.
    Heaps of hugs,
    Bellamine & Wendy

  7. Jessie and Baby - how delightful! We reckon Jessie knows she's on #12 though, and she pretends not to because she's such a loving dog and wants you to be happy. Yeah!

    *off to check new blog*

  8. Hi, Prudence - it's so sweet to see Jessie with Baby. It's kind of like you and Weenie except you don't chew on Weenie!

  11. Hi all, and thanks for the birthday wishes last Monday. I don't feel sixty - only Katy's Mum can tell you if I feel that old.

    It's good to hear about the moose, but particularly to meet Mr Sweet Pea. I do hope he doesn't cause dissension in the ranks.

    Have a nice day.
