A Life With Purpose

Life began for this little fella as it does for any, one full of hope.
Dreams for a life of joy and happiness.

Parents Richard and Betty James could never have imagined the success their child would obtain.  All from dropping tension springs.
His name?
Slinky

Do you have the tune from the 1960's commercial running through your head now?
"What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs and makes a slinkity sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing!
Everyone knows it's Slinky."

You're welcome

 Slinky found a home here in my house when my mom gave it to me as a gift. 
About a month ago.
It makes plenty sense if you know me.
Something to maybe share with the kids I work with.

What fun!  A great place for Slinky, joy, happiness, someone to play with him.
A toys perfect life.

Sadly this was not the ending to be for our dear little friend. 
Instead he met his demise amongst my two youngest pups Elly and Rigby.

Slinky in his prime
 
 Poor, poor Slinky
 

Tug o' War was the game played best with Slinky
 
 
Elly loved playing with Slinky
 
 Chewing on Slinky
 
Watching the springs bounce as she chewed
 
 Playing while resting your head on the arm of a couch creates the need for a nap
 
This Slinky no longer makes a Slinkity sound, but you can't say it's life was without purpose... I have two very happy pups.
