rip annette funicello

i was very saddened to hear about the passing of annette funicello yesterday. she was loved by many and will be missed by all. this little doggie is from the annette's pets line of the annette funicello bear company. i found it at an antique store several years ago and it has been sitting in my home ever since.

the locket has her picture and "autograph".

bailey thought the doggie was her new toy so she just wanted to play with it. i kept telling her it's "mommy's toy" and to be careful with it! i had a bit of trouble getting her to focus on the camera...

but i eventually got a shot that i was pleased with.

until we meet again my friends-


  1. Sweet photo. And what a wonderful keepsake.

  2. We loved Annette too and were deeply saddened by the news. Mom is a mouseketeer from way back.
    Barks and licks and love,

  3. We were very upset yesterday as well! That is a wonderful bear. I have found that all of Momma's bears which become Finn's bears don't ever make it back to becoming Momma's again.

  4. My Mommy #1 is a HUGE fan of the Beach Blanket movies that Annette made. She said they are just plain fun and no one could have played the DeeDee role as well as Annette. She will surely be missed.
    Love Noodles
