It's not a real puppy, but Sarah loves her big stuffed dog that she received for Christmas. She named him Jasper after the Sandgrens' dog Jasper. They're her only aunt and uncle cool enough to have a dog, and their Jasper is also big and blonde. Sarah sleeps with Jasper in her toddler bed, which was cozy enough without him. She drags him upstairs and downstairs, lies on him while she reads, and involves him in all of her games. She totes Jasper's puppies around too, and tucks them into tiny blanket beds of their own in her toddler bed.
