Chopper really is my best friend. He's (usually) the most easy-going roommate I've ever had. He is always happy to see me, even if I'm an hour late, and one goofy look will make me smile. Afew months ago when I cam across this little gem at Trixie + Peanut that I thought was just too cute:
Now at first I had some flashbacks to junior high (not all good) but I decided in the end that we had to have it.
I thought I would put mine on my keyring and Chopper's on his collar and we would be very cute. The problem was that it was really tiny (really is more of a charm size). Nonetheless I put it on the key ring and got Chopper's on his collar (along with his city license, his ID tag and his St. Francis medal). Now Chopper has only ever lost one ID tag (some have just worn out) so I was pretty sure this was a safe bet. The cost ($12) was not too bad if we had to replace it though so I wasn't that worried if he lost his.
Guess who lost it first? Me. My key ring opened up after a meeting and keys flew everywhere. A colleague helped me collect them and when I was certain I had all the keys I left. I forgot about my little charm though. So now I have to order another one because poor Chopper is walking around with "be frie" around his neck and I don't have my "st nds" and I don't want him to feel like some poor junior high girl whose best friend stopped wearing her charm.
Either way I though it was just too cute not to share. Also if you sign up for the newsletter at Trixie + Peanut they send you coupon codes. The next time I'm in NYC I'll have to check out the shop.
