A Hungry Hippo

Last week my owner brought home a bag with something called 'Super Soft Filling'. I wondered what it was for.

It turned out that one of the hippos was feeling a bit under the weather. He had gotten very thin and was feeling very hungry.

So my owner had gotten the filling for him to eat in hope it would bring him up to his normal weight again. It seemed to be working as well.

And just look at the hippo now: all well again.

Oooh, I'm so happy for the hippo! G. Got a little hippo from her old friend Jan today. He's going to bicycle in Kenya to raise money for the flying docters over there. He gave her a hippo that can hold a card! I'll make a post about it so C. Can take a look! It's a very nice little hippo made in Kenya!

Hooray! He looks much better... it's amazing what a bit of food can do. Maybe he was trying to go on a diet to lose weight? And lost too much weight? That's not good... but now he's all better and ready for some hippo adventures!

@Hammie: we'll keep an eye out.
@Enbrethiliel: Yes, we have the McPig-sized travel version!
@Alexander: that might well be. I will tell him and the other hippos to be careful with dieting in the future.
