In the early 1980s, I was smitten by a girlie white pup with pink floppy ears, pink paws and pretty pink sunglasses. She was the most adorable and glamorous dog ever. She went by the name of Poochie and the commercial had a lovely jingle that echoed "Pooooooochie, Poochie for girls!" Sadly that commercial doesn't allow embedding, so I couldn't include it other than including a link. Below is a different vintage ad just to give you a better idea of what Poochie toys looked like.
Mattel packaged Poochie with me in mind. I loved pink and blue--those were true 1982-1984 colors, which was the Poochie heyday. I was a sucker for stickers and stamp pads. I had such a thing for any type of stationary item including note cards, envelopes, you name it. I had to have it. About ten years ago I purchased a few Poochie items on eBay. I'd love to own more, but until we buy a house, our limited space does not allow for collectibles.
