Last Friday my older brother got home late, carrying a hudge plush Pig under his arm. He told the story of Porky, who was trown out of a flat (by an adult) Friday morning before 8 and was still laying outside on the grass at 5PM. My brother was in shock how could anybody simply trow out a plush that was still in okay shape? So he took him home.
I washed him twice by hand (didn't fit in the machine) and let Porky dry for days.
Yesterday evening I fixed him up.

What I did to Porky?
- washed him
- fixed the 4 small holes
- extra stuffing
- new snout & nose-holes
I plan on giving Porky a saddle/deck later but for now he already looks much better. Tomorrow morning my baby brother Ben (4) is going to find him "eating" the carrot in his shoe (who he puts down every other night in the hope Sinterklaas, the dutch santa, put something in it). Poor stepdad has to eat half of the carrot.
I'm pretty sure Porky will spend his remaining years with us. Being cuddled to death. :wink:
