An urgent request.....

Earlier this week I received a package.  Not the usual package of bits and bobs that I have ordered but a very special package, containing a very special item.  It was a little plush dog called 'Jazz'.  With Jazz came a sweet little notecard (with a beautifully coloured frog on the front) from an even sweeter little girl and, it contained an urgent request.  She wanted to know if I could make Jazz well again.




The note started off like this " Dear Auntie Chris, my mom said you could fix my best friend Jazz. He has 3 or 4 holes, one is on his nose....."  Well, how could I refuse a request like that?



As you can see from this photo, Jazz did look a little sorry for himself.... he did have several holes, one ear was a little bit loose and his head was a little bit floppy.  



So I set about restoring him to better health.  His holes have been mended and his ear restitched. He has been plumped up a little so that he can hold his head up high again and he also has a nice new collar with a little shiny bell.




After his treatment I thought Jazz deserved to have a bit of fun before he made his long journey home (he flew all the way from the USA) so, he and I had a day out sight-seeing!!



He visited Windsor Castle and had his photo taken with a soldier.....




But, all good things have to come to an end and after being carefully wrapped up in a nice warm box, he is now on his way back home.  Hope you have a good flight Jazz!

  1. How sweet, A request such as this could certainly not be refused. I'm sure this little girl will always remember this & when she is grown up will pass this story onto her children.

  5. That is sew sweet :) Brought a smile and a little happy tear to my day as I read about all the extra love you gave him. I have been the doctor for several of my little Emmy's and Addilyn's treasures. When they get them back all fixed there are big smiles on their faces! Yours will do the same.:) Have you heard about Flat Stanley the kids do in school? Flat Stanley travels too from place to place and the kids take pictures of where he is at the moment. I love that you took the little doggie for a photo shoot :) And His little collar.... perfect extra touch. Blessings to you. Janita

  11. Jazz looks so much better after his holiday here in England. That'll be the Christine charm and tonic. I am guessing there is one very happy little girl in the USA.
