Did I mention that he is often sweet and cuddly?
Beneath the fuzz was a hard layer wrapped around a core of styrofoam pellets. I didn't want the pellets all over the living room so I put the flamingo in the yard. Sam spent 10 minutes trying to drag the wide flamingo through the narrow dog door. It took some maneuvering, but he succeeded. And when I wasn't looking, loosed a geyser of styrofoam all over the porch.
