BARELY BEARS

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE LIVED IN A VILLAGE IN PERU A COMMUNITY OF CUDDLY ALPACA TEDDY BEARS. (YOU KNOW THE CUTE LITTLE ANDEAN CAMELS WITH THE LONG SOFT HAIR). ANYWAY, THIS GROUP OF TEDDY'S WERE TIRED OF THE BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS AND SLOW PACE OF LIVING. THEY DECIDED TO MAKE A TRIP TO THE UNITED STATES TO SEE THE BIG CITIES, GREEN GRASS AND HUGE RIVERS.  THEY SOON FOUND FAMILIES TO LIVE WITH AND WROTE BACK HOME ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES.  THEY WERE AMAZED AT THE DIFFERENCE IN LIVING HERE. WELL, SOME OF THEIR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES HAVE ARRIVED.  SINCE TEDDY'S  DON'T REALLY LIKE TO WORK AND BECAUSE THEIR OUTFITS DO NOT HAVE POCKETS, THEY HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES A LITTLE SHORT. (ABOUT 10" FROM TIP OF EAR TO BOTTOM OF FEET USUALLY), SOME ARE ALMOST 20 INCHES AND SOME ARE IN BETWEEN.  WHOOPS! I WAS TALKING ABOUT BEING SHORT OF MONEY! IT'S LATE AND I'M A LITTLE DITZY ANYWAY. THEY ARE GETTING BY, IT IS A REAL GOOD THING THEY DON'T EAT MUCH, BUT NOW THEY WOULD LIKE TO FIND MORE PERMANENT HOMES.  MAYBE YOU CAN HELP?

THERE ARE NO QUOTA'S OR IMMIGRATION POLICIES CONCERNING TEDDY BEARS. SOME HAVE DECIDED THAT THEY ARE HERE AND WOULD LIKE TO STAY.  PROBLEM IS THEY DO NOT SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE YET, AND WITHOUT MONEY; THEY NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A BEAR OR TWO IN AND GIVE THEM A GOOD HOME, THEY WILL NEED TRANSPORTATION COST. THEY ARE PRETTY LIGHT, SO IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH. THEY ARE GOOD LISTENERS AND ARE WILLING TO DO THEIR BEST TO BE GOOD HOUSE GUEST. AT THIS TIME, I SHOULD INTRODUCE THEM TO YOU. BEARS ARE VERY POLITE AND MUST BE FORMALLY INTRODUCED. AT FIRST THEY ARE A LITTLE SHY, AND WITH THE LANGUAGE PROBLEM IT MAY TAKE THEM QUITE A WHILE TO CARRY ON A CONVERSATION WITH YOU.  BE ASSURED, HOWEVER, THAT THERE IS NO SLIGHT INTENDED. BEARS WOULD NEVER BE RUDE. THEY PROMISE TO BE ON THEIR BEST BEHAVIOR IF YOU WILL ONLY ADOPT THEM.  MOST ARE STANDING BEARS, BUT SOME ARE SITTING.  OF COURSE THE STANDING BEARS CAN SIT, THEY JUST NEED SOME BACK SUPPORT.  

THERE ARE SEVERAL SIZES, FROM THE SMALLER 10"TODDLER SIZES TO A FEW WHO LIKE SOME AMERICAN'S HAVE OVER EATEN AND ACHIEVED SOME REAL SIZE.  SO FOR THE CHILD IN ALL OF US, HERE ARE OUR NEW ADDITIONS.

Bobbette Bear is all young lady. Very tall for her age, about 20 inches.  A golden honey fur coat.  The picture does not do her justice.  You know how hard it can be to take pictures of teddy bears.  The just do what they want to do.  The move when you want them to stay still and stay still when you want them to move.

Bonnie Bear likes the natural look. Her coat is tans and greys and makes her look older than she really is. Shy, she likes her privacy. She is very loyal to her friends and just needs a little time to get used to you.

Hi! Just thought I would let you know, I was adopted by an elderly lady. She collects bears, so I am surrounded by cousins. Her grandchildren come and take me out to play. Takes me time to recoup from their visits, but normally it is pretty calm and I have time to go on the internet and read a lot. Reading little women at present. Saw the tapes, four versions, at least a dozen times since I left.

Say hi to everyone and send me the gang's addresses when you get a chance.

Love

Bonnie

Blake Bear was named after his grandfather Blakely. Somehow, the formal name just didn't fit. Blake is quite the slob. Loud and always the tease, he is usually at the bottom of practical jokes. It will take a firm hand to control him. Sorry, I have moved in with a nice family. I really love cable television, especially Monday night football. Football is really different in this country. In our country, football is endless motion and you do not get to rest a minute between 10 second plays. I think you call our football - soccer. Anyway I really love it here. $45.00

for gasoline and he will be on his way to you.

     SOLD

BoBo Bear is a standing bear that can also sit. At 18 inches he is the largest and shaggiest of the village. All man, at least he thinks so. A rugged silent type, he is teased by his smaller siblings. The call him the abominable fur ball because he is so hairy. He can sit for hours real quiet or play all day - your choice of course. Call real soon before he is adopted! Bo Bo was taken in by a lady that just loved his soft side. Sorry, but he was a real charmer. Too much of a charmer it seems, he left a huge phone bill to his girl friend in Peru. $85.00

At his size, he needs transportation and several meals too!

     SOLD

Bradly Bear is all decked out for dinner. Dinner, what he really means is life is one continuous meal. He ate his parents out of house and home. They had milk delivered by the case every other day. He really needs to go on a diet!

Yo! Tom, Have to go to Washington for the swear in, too many parties and food to miss the trip. Have a nice family to stay with, might make it permanent. They could use a little class in Washington, with this new group, I may just fit in.
