Take a Guess

December 24th, 2009

Our nieces & nephew got into the whole homemade Christmas this year. The oldest one is really starting to understand the concept. She made a special gift for my dad this year and was so excited to give it to him. It’s the first thing she’s made all by herself and she was very proud of herself.

I thought I’d give you all a chance to guess what it is. (Lucy thought it was a rawhide chew and wanted to eat it).

So what kinds of animal do you think it is, take your best shot?

    To me it looks like a Dachshound without a tail. I was trying to think of tailess animals, but I just couldn’t. I would say some type of dog.

    I have to go with Rudolph as well.

    I have a few of those sorts of things from my daughters and they are some of my most precious possessions.
