Sad Dixie...

Dixie is a sad dog.

Her favorite toy, a plush Christmas ornament, has stopped working.

It was a Christmas gift last year, and she immediately took a liking to it. Actually, she took a "loving" to it. The ornament is a little white dog with a Santa hat. When the shoulders were squeezed, the cheeks lit up red and it said, "Merry Christmas, Ruff-Ruff!" Dixie would gently bite it and it would say that line. She loved hearing it. It was her go-to toy.

Unfortunately, the dog won't talk anymore. It's cheeks still light up, but the sound is gone. Dixie keeps bringing it to me as if saying, "please fix this." She's moping around.

I've been looking at stores all over trying to find a replacement, but haven't been successful. Fortunately there are holiday type items showing up in stores now, so I'll be keeping an eye out for a replacement.

Poor Dixie. It sucks when your toys break.

Oh mercy, that mournful look is pitiful. I liked that "gently bite" line. Could it just be out of batteries?

I need an excuse to go to our Christmas Store here in town. I love looking but, I don't want any more Christmas STUFF! I will print your picture and see if we get lucky.
And yup, Dixie looks absolutely sad.

It might be out of batteries...but the toy doesn't open, so I don't know that it uses batteries that can be replaced. I'll check.

Thanks. Dixie will keep her paws crossed. :-)

That is one sad looking Dixie. I think the entire OC will be scouring the world for a replacement.
