3V0736.02 Culdy’s mouse; apparent possessive (1/28/80)

Peggy has been of late forcing the dog’s toy on her, will she or not.
With Scurry in the other room, Peggy picked up the toy and very
distinctly and precisely named it as “Culdy’s mouse” then ran off to put
it on her. This is an uncontestable use of a form that has all the
surface features of a possessive; the form was distinctly applied on an
object to a person quite correctly.
