Joop, by Steiff


Per Poodletail.

These are vintage Steiff terriers, from US-Zone Germany.
(They sold for $350 according to the Toy Auction site I found them on.)

Joop's the one in the middle.

Excuse me now, I have to go work on my storyboards.

It is Joop! They channelled him before he was born. It reminds me of when he was a puppy, and sitting very still at a garage sale, and people literally thought he was a cute stuffed toy for sale.

Too right! It's him, I know it, and I've only met him once. Amazing that vintage toys can get so flippin' spendy.

They cost almost as much as a real live dog.

That's an amazing line up of dogs and their look-alike toys!
