A few months later, Snoopy could be found resting while Bailey watched his favorite preschool cartoons. Even a few months ago, Snoopy was a devoted nap taker and good at taking abuse from Bailey.
After nearly 3 years of undying friendship and even overcoming the possibility of being replaced by the likes of Thomas and Mack, Snoopy took a trip to school and didn't return home. You can only imagine my sorrow. We searched the room and couldn't find Snoopy and still haven't found Snoopy! I waited and waited and Bailey would occasionally say "Snooey at Schoo." He didn't seem too phased by his loss, but Mommy was. At other points in our journey with Snoopy, I've almost purchased a new one, but they get expensive on Ebay and that's about the only place I can find him. Then last week, I found one that was significantly cheaper on a Buy It Now so I bought it! And here he is! Bailey was delighted to have his new clean Snoopy and though he doesn't need him near as much as he once did, there's some degree of comfort in knowing Snoopy is just a few feet away. Maybe that's just mommy feeling comforted! Snoopy will always be a treasured part of our family!
