I have loved and sucked and cuddled this teddy since I was a pup -
I can spend a good few hours just sitting there sucking it, in a trance.
But - over the months and years I have worn him down a little,
he had no eyes or nose, one ear and half his body was made up of thread after K has had to fix him....and he got lots of washes!
BUt then Gertrude arrived. I have been protecting my bear ever since she has been here, and doing a fairly good job of it - she had him a few times, but nothing that wasn't fixable.
Then, the other day THIS happened.....
She swears it wasn't her......
Poor poor bear, my best friend for almost 3 years, in the rubbish bin.
I made sure Gertie got what was coming to her - naughty little pup.
For now, I have been given a 'temporary bear' but he isn't the same. It's just not fair. I wish I wish I could have my old bear back.......
