We lost our dog of 8 years that my daughter had grown up with this year. She was constantly crying herself to sleep missing her. This pillow was a perfect gift for her. The small size makes it easy for her to carry around with her on sleepovers and family trips. The picture quality on the fabric was close to perfect, not blurry at all! and the turquoise color was spot on. I have yet to wash it, so I am a little scared to do that, but if anything I will gently hand wash to preserve it. It was beautiful and she absolutely loves cuddling with it every night and it gives her some comfort of her Coco Buggy.
