Betelgeuse has (finally) fully recovered from last week's sickness. Thank you for your get well wishes!

A few weeks ago, we shared a room at La Quinta Inn in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my brother, his lovely girlfriend, and their dog, Rigel. My puppy nephew has gotten so big!
Rigel had this big plush squeaking bunny dog toy that he just loved. He would squeak it, shake it, hold it, hump it. I had never thought to get my little dogs such a big toy, but it was super cute to see Rigel and a Rigel-sized bunny locked in an embrace. So on our way out of town, I stopped into a pet store to purchase Betelgeuse her own big plush squeaking bunny. Only this pet store didn't sell big plush squeaking bunnies, so I got her a big plush squeaking blue dog instead.* She loves it, guys.
And so now we have three dogs ($11).
* I can't for the life of me find a link to the blue dog on the Internet. It is difficult to come up with Google search terms for a dog toy that is also a dog. Let me know if you come up with anything.
