Big Harry Is In The House!!!

Theodore M. Bear reporting on the exciting news in our home!

Big Harry's mom, Patty, said that she was moving into a smaller house. She knew that Harry would need lots of room to roam and play and run and was very concerned about him. Now our house is not that big but we decided that we have just enough room to adopt Big Harry.

Patty was so good about packing Harry with plenty of honey and other supplies for the journey. He had a marvelous time flying from Texas to California. When he was brought out of his traveling box, he saw all the bears looking at him. He was a bit nervous at first. In seconds, they all started cheering and greeting him and hugging him and welcoming him to his new home!! I think I saw a tear or two from Harry as they all were jumping up and down with excitement. He smiled the biggest grin, climbed out of his box and hugged each and every bear, hare and assorted other friends. By the time he was done, it was dinner time.

Everyone wanted Harry to sit next to them at the table. You can see below how they all piled on top of him (even I'm right there with him right in the front.) I told them all that Harry needed a bit of a break to relax from his long trip here. They understood perfectly, of course. Harry told everyone a bit about himself and how much he missed Patty in Texas but how happy she'd be knowing he was so loved by so many bearsons and Mom, Dad, Sarah and even Chloe the dog, Teddy Bear and Norah Cat. I told Harry that Mom would be sure to let Patty know that he arrived safe and sound and is very happy. In fact, he pulled me aside later in the evening to say how happy he is to be living here and how he is looking forward to many wonderful memories to come! I told him that we do holidays pretty big in our household and Mom thinks he'd be the perfect Santa Claus at Christmastime. His eyes widened and I could tell that he was already planning what presents he would give to each one of his new friends!

Still wrapped up in his travel blanket....

All free!

Harry wants to e-mail Miss Patty to let her know he's arrived safe and sound.

Oh my goodness - bear pile on Harry!

Even Teddy Bear Cat is excited about greeting Harry.

Harry has a light snack before dinner!

You can be sure that there will be many more adventures of Harry and all our friends!

A Strange Happening.....

What's all the commotion? Why are you all looking outside?

Is the UPS driver stopping at our house??

Yes he is! And he's leaving a very large box on our doorstep!

Chloe's giving it the sniff test in search of clues...

Teddy Bear is giving his two "scents" worth...

Whatever can it be?? Tune in tomorrow, same bear time, same bear station!

A New Friend .... With a Pedigree! :-)

Kirby Bear reporting in here. Today, Mom heard a knock at the door. Whoever could that be? Why, it was our letter carrier dropping off a box. curiosity arose. What or WHO could be inside?

Look at this box...
Mom, I've got the scissors! Ummm...maybe I should take over, Kirby, mom said....
Why, it's a little brown suitcase with travel and bear stickers on it! I wonder if there's something inside?
Oh my gosh!! There's a bear inside! And from the looks of things, he's been traveling for quite a while!

Come on out little feller!

He's tied to the suitcase. Mom! I need the scissors again!
Thank you so much for releasing me! My name is Fynn and I'm a Steiff Bear! 
I'm Kirby and I'd like to welcome you to our family!
There are a lot of bears here who would love to meet you, Fynn! Oh and there are a couple of cats too, like Teddy Bear here....

I know I will love it here!
