Bean has a new toy. It’s a large, round, pillow-like stuffed animal. It’s black, but it’s belly has purple stripes. When you push it’s hand, it snores, then Baaas. It’s a sheep. She is terrified of it. Actually, she has a small sheep toy that Baaas and she’s terrified of it, too. She has Muttonophobia.

I was calling this animal a sheep and the hub said, “No, it’s not. Look at that. It’s not a sheep.” Now, it’s strange circular shape and unusual ears do make the particular species of this stuffed animal hard to determine. But, it Baaas, so I still say it’s a sheep. The hub? He responded by saying. “No way! It’s a puma. Or a ladybug.”

A puma or a ladybug?
