The two older stuffed dogs were from Colby's childhood. The bigger one was given to him on his first birthday, a gift from his grandma J, who lived in California at the time, and was a bank promotion item, the Crocker State Bank, thus the name, Crocker Spaniel. The little one was made by the same company but not part of the promotion, and was found at a yard sale years later. Both of them, as you can see, were well loved when Colby was a kid and were played with, slept with, thrown up on, and washed many times! They were put away after a while, but never thrown out. Fast forward several years and here I am sitting at the computer and see THIS very set (even though they weren't actually a set) on ebay. And to make a long story short, here they all are, a happy little family. The copywright tags say 1978 and 1979 and the new ones look like they've never been played with. April 18, 2007.
