Much Loved and a Little Bullied.....

Its great to be back to enjoy Melody's Teddy Bear Picnic so pop over to see other picnicers , I have brought a little friend with me today  but I don't think the  pumpkin is very good picnic food really. I was having a look at Sandi's picnic and she inspired me to join her with the theme  "Anti Bullying Day"  ....so I'm wearing a little Orange ribbon...... which brings me to my story..... I'm " Robbie's Teddy" and I belong to Helen's son "Robert"  I never actually got my own name but that didn't matter as we went everywhere together.... I was bought by "Auntie June" (Helen's sister) as a gift when I was born and he just about loved me to death really as you can see in these photos.... now to the bullying bit of my story, we had a dog called "Penny" and she got hold of me and ripped my face open..... Rob was so upset he wouldn't have his afternoon sleep till his Mum fixed me..... new eyes and a nose job later off to sleep he went and me too of course as I was so tired after my ordeal  so please support the "Anti Bullying Day" tomorrow.

I brought along a chocolate..... bit of a play on words ...."Rocky Road"...... see even a Bear has a sense of humour hehehehehe.


Robbie sure did love me heaps, I'm nearly all worn out.
Robbie's Grandma Rose made me the blue outfit.... its so cool don't you think ?

I went to hospital when Rob was 18months old and was very sick, they even put injections in me which I thought was a bit much but if it was helping Robbie then it was worth it.


There is nothing like a cuppa with a good mate.

Love you " Robbie"


He's a big boy now 42yrs so Helen is keeping me safe till he comes to get me......
gosh I hope he comes soon .... I miss him.

I love Robbie's Ted and it is wonderful to have your fur 'loved right off you' I love the final photo and I got a bit misty with him missing his (grown up)best friend. Lovely post Helen and I concur "Kindness Matters" not bullying.

Fantastic story Helen. Michael has a similar bear, Mr Lynch, that our dear friend (Michael Lynch) gave to Michael on his christening day.

Lovely story and one that fits the anti-bullying theme so nicely. Even if Penny wasn't really bullying. Thanks for sharing.

A boy and his bear. What a wonderful story - to be with him in the hospital and getting a needle.

What a well loved and faithful bear he is. It looks like he has had a lifetime of great picnics - hope he enjoys his latest one.
