Hmmm, my post seems to have vanished. Oh well.
Yes, it is a stuffed toy, a rabbit. They've desqueakered it, and partially destuffed it; but they still think it's fun. I came out one of this cold mornings and found it frozen on the ground with stuffing scattered around it. It was oddly gruesome, and I decided not to buy any more life like toys!
Randy, my parents had a rescued greyhound, Luke, and he was a very sweet dog. My father used to wait on that dog hand and foot, too! They have that whole tragic look thing going on, and all Luke had to do was fix his big brown eyes on Dad, and he melted.
