Puppy-Dog Eyes for my sister Dena

Back on March 19, I said that along with a Balderdash board game, I had found something for my sister Dena’s birthday. Her birthday was yesterday, so now it can be told.

This delightful find is a ceramic mug of an adorable doggy. A separate ceramic head is set in a little indentation, with a little wire running through to the edges of the indentation, so the head is free-moving. And when you tip the cup up to your lips, the little puppy dog eyes follow you!

Here’s the mug in action:

The underside mark indicates it was made in 1984.
