I was just going to post a picture of Earl's favourite stuffed animal, a cat named Jamie (or Jaime, or Jamey, we didn't really discuss the spelling), when I thought it would be fun to post a picture of my brother Stephen's favourite stuffed animal, too. Leo the Lion has been with us for a very, very long time. And then I thought, well, how can I refrain from posting a picture of my own favourite? Snowbell the Sheepdog has been my constant companion since I was about six, if I remember correctly. Leo and Snowbell look a little the worse for wear, but rest assured that they have been very, very loved.
