Sad Panda Alert: Pokey Has Gone Missing

Pokey, who has been riding shotgun and making photo cameos with me for the past few months… is no more. I lost him out of my motorcycle jacket pocket along with my most favorite-est glasses. I am a sad fuzzy panda. And also an idiot.

So long, sweet Pokey. I hope you’re looking excited and amazed wherever you are. See you on the road, buddy. 🙁

    Awe, sad Pokey, sniff sniff.

    You can only hope a small child finds it and Pokey becomes their new best friend and brings a smile to their face.

    Oh, no! I hope he finds new life somewhere.

  5. Don’t get your hopes down, you never know Pokey might just show up one day at your door steps.

  6. So sorry, I’ll miss the little guy in your pics. Mr. Bill hasn’t jumped from the bike yet, has he?

    I once was part of a group that temporarily lost a mascot that was traveling around the world for charity. A very lightly traveled road saved our butts. Posts 1181 & 1182:

    So sorry to hear about Pokie MIA!!! I have a rock, her name is Lizzy, and she travels with my husband and I. I have devoted a lot of my post last year to Lizzy…It is so much fun…I wish Pokie the best, where ever he is. 🙂

    I know how you feel. I still miss my frog, and he didn’t always travel with me. Still, he was my mascot. He was lost along a quiet road in Utah over a year ago. Hopefully you will find a suitable substitute.

    Sad to hear about Pokey’s disappearance…:( I’m sure he isn’t lost, he’s sitting beside the road somewhere, patiently waiting for your return!!

  10. Ahhh, so sorry to hear about Pokey. Maybe just needed to get away to write the great American novel. If so, I call dibs on a walk-on roll in the film adaptation!

    Sorry to hear about your glasses too. I’ve lost more accessories while on my bike than in my entire life put together.

    Maybe he saw the chance at freedom and jumped for it. Does he have a chip?
