Stuffed Animals Are Ready to Do Battle
April 25, 2018 12:11pm CST
There must be a lot of wildlife critters roaming outside our 6-foot wooden fence that surrounds Molly's backyard. Molly's stuffed animals are kept in an open container on the patio. I walked into the backyard yesterday, and I was surprised to see that Molly has been very busy placing all those stuffed animals in strategic spots in the backyard. I believe Molly must have put a lot of thought into stuffed-animal placement. Molly has always told me that positioning is key when stuffed babies are ordered to defend the backyard from wildlife. There are a few small spaces where wooden fence does not quite meet the ground. Those little spaces are just right for a skinny, or quite flexible, wildlife critter to make its way into Molly's backyard. I very glad that Molly's stuffed animals, referred to as "babies" by Molly, are out there to help defend Molly's property from wildlife. My husband said it looks like a stuffed-baby graveyard out there. I must check to see if all Molly's "babies" are alive and kicking.

@thislittlepennyearns No, Molly insists that all stuffed babies remain outdoors. I will bring one in just for fun, and she will take it right back outside. I have placed one on her doggy bed indoors, and she is not happy about that. Out is goes.

I saw a TV program about how certain dogs do this. This one dog had hundreds of stuff toys. The owner would say bring me the giraffe, dog goes and gets the giraffe. Bring me the lion. Dog brings a lion. Bring me the squirrel , not the rabbit, the squirrel. Dog brings the squirrel. Pretty damn smart if you ask me.

Molly certainly loves to keep her backyard free of other critters! I hope it works well for her, But you must talk to her about giving her babies some leave time, so they don't have to be on guard every day! do they ever complain to you about that?
