This dog is one of my first childhood memories... but it's not mine, it's Carlos's!
When Carlos brought home some of his childhood toys that had been untill then at his mother's, my jaw just dropped at the sight of this plastic dog, because I used to have one just like it when I was a little kid. I don't recall getting it. I guess it was my elder brother's and I made it my own once he (5 years older than I) had discarded it...
Carlos tells me this was part of a plastic circus and that ringed a bell on me, but everything I can remember about it is the dog. But I do remember taking it with me everywhere (and it probably got lost as I left it somewhere and totally forgot about it).
In any case it really is funny we both not only had this little unimportant toy, but we both cherised it so much!
Looking at it from the distance (40 or more years later) I really think it is perfectly designed: it just cannot be simpler and better! any kid nowadays would certainly enjoy with it as much as we did as little kids.
