We are gathered here today to say goodbye to an honored friend...Pink Thing.
Pink Thing has been with us since the beginning of known time (Jemima's Mom's note: I bought Pink Thing for Jemima the same day that I bought Jemima).
Pink Thing has been a loving and devoted friend who has provided hours of tug-o-war, snuggle, and fetch time.
Sometime before Christmas Pink Thing was the victim of a vicious attack (Jemima's Mom's Note: and just WHO attacked him Jemima...hmmm?). Pink Thing's chest was ripped open, and his guts mercilessly pulled out. Next his arms and most of his head were emptied. Mom attempted to save Pink Thing, but the damage was just to bad (Jemima's Mom's Note: And the mess! Who knew that a dinky little toy had THAT much stuffing in it?!?!).
So, today Mom allowed me to say goodbye to Pink Thing, gave him a little hug herself (Jemima's Mom's Note: SNIFFLE), and threw him in the trash.
Goodbye dear, dear Pink Thing! You will be missed at every turn! You will be remembered forever! You will be....Oh! Is that my Squeaky Raccoon from Roy and Gwen?
(Jemima's Mom's Note: Well, I will remember Pink Thing at any rate...He was her baby toy and I for one will actually miss his little pink face around the house).
