Did your son lose a toy dog at Bemboka Bakery back in November?

By 13 January 2013 6

The fluffy toy dog ended up being posted to me, as an incorrect address was given to the bakery…

I would very much like to get this toy back to its owner, but we have no way of contacting them… the bakery kindly posted the toy but they do not have any other contact details.

All I know is that the the toy was lost by a young chap when visiting the bakery, and that they live in ACT.

Write a ransom note with pic and post it around town.

Hopefully it will get notoriety on popular social media sites and eventually get the owner’s attention.

This will actually work quicker than any other method you could think of.

Wrong address as in you were picked at random or just the wrong house number for example?

Part of the address matches my work address, I can see from the markings on the parcel that other addresses were tried before mine.

I tried to identify other possible addresses, and knocked on a few doors – but no success!

I raised a query with Australia Post – but they were not able to help… as I do not have a name for the recipient… their advice was to return it to the Bemboka Bakery… which I called and left my contact details with the hope that the family would call them back again later , but they didn’t.

I have tried everything I could think iof but am out of enthusiasm to put some random demand posters up around town – but what a great idea that was!

You know, I wouldn’t worry about it too much now.

My 3yo has had a toy puppy that he’s been inseparable with from the time he was old enough to form an attachment with anything, named ‘puppy’. There have been many nights when come bed time, we’ve realised puppy was missing, and done the mad dash around the house, car and back yard to find him.

A little while ago though, out of the blue he just decided that he liked another stuffed puppy toy more – now referred to as ‘my favourite puppy’. And just like that, the original puppy was relegated to second position. It was kinda brutal really!

The moral of the story though, is that the little chap who lost his puppy back in November has almost certainly formed a new attachment, and even if you did manage to find the owner now there would be no movie scene ending – old puppy will never resume his place in the pecking order.

Kids can be brutal sometimes – something us adults often struggle with more than they do!

Good on you for making the effort, and thinking about the child.
