On Lolli’s TWO chairs in our theater she sits on back and forth (beside the chase with me :), I had her Dr. Lisa Ducky (given to her from Dr. Lisa her foster mommy for her trip down from Los Angeles to be adopted by us), her Daddy Ducky and her Momma Ducky – all lined up against one chair’s arm. Snickers taught her how to dig the blankets messing them up into a nest and then laying on them. A few nights ago when she did this, the Dr. Lisa Ducky fell to the floor and she hadn’t noticed. I communicated to her saying, “Lolli OMGosh, you knocked your Dr. Lisa ducky on the floor, did you mean to do that? Do you want to leave it all by itself on the floor?” She looks at me, gets up from the other chair, jumps down, finds her Dr. Lisa Ducky on the floor, wads it into her mouth gently (the only toy she’s never unstuffed….unstuffing taught to her by her bro Snicks), jumps back up onto the chair with it, sets it besides her gently and then falls asleep.
She loves her foster mommy Dr. Lisa! 🙂
And just to confirm, it’s not “just” the toy, it’s the toy when we brought Lolli up for a reunion to her rescuers, that we had Dr. Lisa hold the whole visit while together. Then when we bought in the bags of stuff from the car the next morning and put them on the floor, Lolli dug into all the bags and found her Dr. Lisa Ducky > ran to the couch > laid it next to her in a content state and fell asleep.
For all you rescuers, adopters and fosters – know the true impact you have on the baby’s hearts you save. ❤
