“Fur”real Friends!

Someone in my office ordered a big Xmas present for their daughter (apologies to the Park Slope Parents Message Board for making that assumption about a plush, butterscotch pony)!

I like to think the “FRR” is just the suggested pronunciation, with a little bit of a lisp and a “my hand is a claw” motion.

EDIT: Turns out there are lots of Furreal Friends to choose from!

For bettor or “horse”!

Adds a whole new dimension to the Lynn Johnston comic strip:

I guess it’s a gambling thing, but I like to think it’s about a family of goofy Canadian horses.

(And if “Cathy” were about a horse, it would probably look something like this.)
