My oldest princess has had this little stuffed dalmatian dog since she was a baby. Until recently, there hasn't been a night she's slept without him for a very, very long time. He will always represent her childhood to me. Anyone who knows her, knows how important Spot is to her. We are anti-clutter people and are known for throwing or giving things away, but this is one toy I planned on keeping forever.
I don't know how it happened, but somehow Spot got lost after Christmas. I have turned this house inside out looking for him. One night, with tears in her eyes, she said, "Mommy, I think Spot is lost forever." It just about broke my heart. I'm as attached to him as she is.
I thought for sure he would have turned up by now, but he is nowhere to be found. If you are so inclined, would you pray for a little girl to find her favorite stuffed doggie?
