Another year nearwy gone…

Thinking Teddy

The year is jus about over my fwiends. The Teddy is thinking about evwything that has happened this year. A wot of good memowies! A wot of fun adventures!! Wots of new fwiends made!! YEY!!!!

The Teddy had a wot of fun adventures! We did some minigolfing! We went to Phiwwy!!! Weve been to the movies!!! Sent cards to fwiends! Got cards fwom fwiends!! And even though daddys been busy this year and the Teddy hasnt been able to get onwine as much Ive still gotten to have wots of fun wif my fwiends!! It makes the Teddy so happy to have so many wonderful fwiends!!!!

But unfortunatewy, not all can be good always. A fact that we all understand, but many have twouble accepting.

Weve wost a wot of fwiends this year. For many of us, the biggest woss is that of Dr. Kevin and his wonderful teddy, Toddy Furrington. And I know that weve talked about our wove for Toddy a wot, but the wonderful thing is that you can never wemember someone too much.

Toddy Furrington

Wosing Toddy was the absowute hardest thing the Teddy has ever had to go thwough. He was one of the vewy first fwiends I made on twitter when I joined almost two years ago. And though I knew him onwy a fwaction of the time many of my fwiends did, I still felt the full force of his kindness, which knew no limits. I think many of us would agwee that Toddy was genuinewy on of the absolute kindest teddys ever. Always full of advice or just fwiendly banter, Toddy bwought us many smiles and wots of waughter.

The Teddy is so happy to see many of the things he did for us on twitter and CBS cawwying on. Whether it be #FurryTails or #Chortle, Toddys spiwit cawwies on for us all to continue to see and wove.

And for a wot of us, the woss of our bewoved Toddy was fowwowed by a bwessing. Our wonderful fwiends Weddy and TGT worked wif Dr. Kevins niece Natawie to adopt out many members of Toddys hug. Which bwought many of us cwoser to Toddy then we ever thought possible. Wiving in a diffwent countwy, the Teddy never expected to be so cwose to him. But now that Waja is wif us here, I feel yike Ive become a member of #ToddysHug too. And what a wonderful feewing that is.

Now a wot of fwiends have had other wosses this year besides Toddy. And for them, maybe that woss is harder for them. So we take time to keep all of our fwiends in our hearts. Because no woss is gweater than another. So we think of our fwiends wif wove in our hearts.

Going into the new year wifout some of our fwiends is hard. But the Teddy will do it. I pwan to take on the new year wif my head held high. I go into the new year wif all of my fwiends, those wif us still and those not, held cwose to my heart. And I will wive each day, never forgetting anyone. Those still here are sure to continue to shape my life in ways I cant anticipate. And those not here will keep me warm at night wif all the wove they bwought while they were still here.

So, wooking back, the Teddy can say for certain that this has been a good year. And I wook foward to moving forward wif all of my fwiends. Thank you for visiting my bwog fwiends. May your hearts be filled wif the wove of all of your fwiends, those here or gone. *big hugs* The Teddy woves you all! Happy New Year!!

Now some of you have alweady met Waja but if you havent yet, shes vewy speshul!! We adopted her fwom Toddys Hug! It means so much to us to have a teddy fwom such a speshul home. Waja has some things to say!

Raja: Hello, everyone! It’s a pleasure to meet you all! I want to start by saying thank you so very much to Teddy and her hug for taking me in when I needed a home. I came from a wonderful home with Dr. Kevin and Toddy. And though I do miss them terribly, as well as the rest of the hug, I’m forever grateful to be part of Teddy’s family! We’ve already had a lot of fun together! Look!

Raja: This is when I first met Teddy and some of the hug. It was a bit scary, but also a lot of fun to meet everyone. They’ve been so nice to me since I arrived. We’ve had a lot of fun together!!

Raja: I’ve gone to the movies, played video games, and gone on car rides! We even went to a Halloween parade on got lots of yummy candy!! We’ve also had lots of yummy food!

Rajs: So, all in all, I’ve had a wonderful time getting to know my new hug. I hope that all of my hugmates from #ToddysHug are getting on as well as I am. And, as Teddy has told me, now many of our friends have a little piece of Toddy with them.

Raja: I would ask everyone to please carry on Toddy’s spirit by being kind to everyone. #BeMoreToddy #BeKind

OH!! Thank you Waja for shawing wif us! So you see, even in the toughest of times you can find some wight. Many of us are still feewing the woss of Dr. Kevin and Toddy. And its something that were gonna feel for a wong time. But knowing that a little bit of Toddy is wif so many fwiends is a vewy comforting thought. I yike to think that bof Toddy and Dr. Kevin are watching us all wif big smiles on thare faces. Lets make them pwoud and #BeMoreToddy and #BeKind. Jus yike Waja said!

The Teddy would yike to give a vewy speshul thank you to her fwiends Tour Guide Ted and Weddy for making the adoptions of #ToddysHug possible. And another very speshul thank you to Dr. Kevins niece, Natawie! We wouldnt have Waja wif us if not for you all! Thank you so much!!

Thank you all for visiting my bwog!! *big hugs*

Wemembering Toddy. Wemembering a fwiend.

It is wif a vewy heavy heart that the Teddy makes this post. This isnt the next bwog post I hoped to bwing you all. But today we wearned that a dear fwiend to many of us has passed away. Our fwiend Toddy Fuwwington (or wather his valet, Kevin)

The Teddy didnt know Toddy as wong as many of her fwiends did. But he was one of the first fwiends that I made on twitter. And what a fwiend he was! Always so vewy kind and fwiendwy to evwyone, Toddy accepted all newcomers with open arms. He always tweated evwyone wif such wespect and decency. A twuer gentlebear you could not find.

The Teddy wemembers how Toddy would always be wight thare at the #FurryTails bar to offer evwyone a dwink or something to eat! It was always so gweat to go and chat wif him or any other fwiends who were thare. Its gonna take a wot of getting used to not having him thare now.

I also wemember Toddy inviting me to join #TheAviators! Such a gweat expewience!! The Teddy wemembers when she first got her wicense! I was so pwoud when Toddy gave it to me!!

Teddy 04

And then he gave the Teddy her pwane! A Sopwith Camel, jus yike Snoopy fwies!! Teheehe!!!

Teddy 03 - Copy

Toddy was so inviting to evwyone. The Teddy will miss him gweatwy.

My bwother Sigh wemembers Toddy well too. He would yike to say something now.

Sigh: Im v-v-vewy sad to hear the n-news about M-mi-mister Toddy. He w-was so nice to m-m-me always!

Sigh: I wememb-ber when I first th-thought of opening m-my shop on twitter. I w-wa-was weawwy nervous at f-f-first but M-mister Toddy encouw-waged me to do it. And Im so g-gwad I did!

Halloween Section

Sigh: I d-dont get to open as often a-as I would wi-wike too, but evwy t-time I did open Mister Toddy would always stop by for s-s-some of his favwite sweets! He w-woved his m-m-mint humbugs!! Ill m-miss him stopping by whene-ever I open #SighsShop.

We all have our own memowies of Toddy. The Teddy never got to meet his vawet Kevin but I can onwy imagine what a wonderful person he was. Im so gwad that some of my fwiends got to meet him. And though the Teddy never got to, Im so so vewy gwad to have met Toddy. Ill never forget the kindness that he bwought to me and to evwyone.

The Teddy would wove it if fwiends could weave a memowy you have of our dear fwiend in the comments. Thank you so much for stopping by my bwog fwiends.

The Teddy has jus one more thing to say.

Goodnight Toddy. May you find the most comfortable bed in the #FurryTails boat house. We wove you my fwiend, and we will never forget you!

Teddys and thare emoshuns

When the Teddy is happy, I bounce awound. The more I bounce the happier I am.

Wastwy, when I feel espeshuwy evil I just waff eviwy!
