Muzzer's Munchkin

Well, we were so impressed by Miss Autumn's post this morning on Tiny Ted that we decided to show you Muzzer's Paddington Bear. He is slightly taller than Ted, topping out at 4.5 inches, in boots and hat. He has moved with us from Azrizona. Originally, he belonged to one of the Sissies, but muzzer has appropriated him.
He usually lives on her desk, hidden from prying doggie eyes, but we brought him into the kitchen for his photo shoot.
See his tiny tag. It says "Paddington Bear" which is not what it is supposed to say, AT ALL!
But muzzer just pretends that this is a later version, after he is established in jolly old England and replaced his heavy blue wool coat with a new slicker and hat. Of course, his wellies are black and not red, which sort of supports the story line she has developed.

Here is a profile shot, in case he should decide to run away and visit our blogging pals.

And closeup shots of his little wellies, complete with bear paws on the bottom.

We don't have too many stuffies around here, because me n Teka are hell on stuffies. But maybe we can get muzzer to show you her Mennonite stuffies some time too.

Muzzer's Paddington Bear is just adorable, Gussie! We love his wellies! How cute they are!
We'd love to see your Mennonite stuffies whenever you want to show them to us!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I hope you give him plenty of Marmalade sandwiches.. apparently thats what Paddington eats!

The beans have a Paddington Bear somewhere, but he is traditionally dressed in the Red duffle etc, no doubt munching on a Marmalade Sandwich whilst vying for attention along with the 3 million other stuffies they own!

I don't understand why the beans need any stuffies.. they have ME!!

love and tailwags,

Ben xxxx

The little bear looks just the right size to fit in my large yet curiously gentle mouth.

Hey Gussie,
Muzzer's bear sure is cute! We luv his little wellies. How come you & Teka like Muzzer's stuffies so well? We don't dare even look at Mama's stuffies. She still has tons that she's never posted about and that doesn't even include the moosies or lambies. We think Mama should make a bubbleshare slideshow with all of her dog stuffies at least so that we can put it onto the blog. What do you think? Hmmmm, wonder if the cats will be mad?? tee hee!
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Please look after this bear, Thank you! My ma ape has a PB that is taller than ME but it is at my GranNE's house and she keeps it in a glass case like Lenin's tomb!

wally t.

ps. When my ma ape was 8, my GranNE made her a PB costume complete with fuzzy mask and "paws" plus wellies and a rain slicker.

pps. My ma ape fears I have revealed too much. I say there are worse things than dressing like a fictional bear.

Our Dad's gram collects bears, and she has a great big Padington, the old school one :)

We don't have any tiny stuffies, Tanner would eat them.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my Gussie...he is just the cutest thing ever...um...DOES HE DATE? He's a tad short for me, but I'll adjust...

Love his boots!!!

Buckets of kisses to you both and hooge hugs to Muzzer!

Lotsa love, Laciegirlie

Stanley said...

Gussie Gus Gus!

Your muzzer is always surprising me! She's an erudite lover of fuzzbutts and fuzz faces, and we love her songwriting skills! Now we're finding that she is has her own mini Paddington. She is a renaissance woman for SURE!

We are catching up slowly with everyone. My girl has been busy writing on the evil thesis and we've had a hard time getting her to do much else. Plus, we've been reeling from the news about Klaus. So, here we are.

You know, you asked me about teaching you how to do the snuggle therapy on Teka... I can try, but it seems like each dog (especially girl dogs) is so different and you have to find THE thing that will calm them. Other than sitting on her what else have you tried with Teka?

Let me know.

Goober love & smooches,

Very adorable lil bear. My mum has a tiny winy bear I will have to introduce. I think he is record small bear.
The profile shot was pawsome.
I would love to see the other stuffies...I am hell on stuffies too.
PS: I think you are right...Fence is for me....bol

We have some things in our house that are behind glass so that they can not be destuffed. Paddington Bear should probably go into one of those places.

Eric said...

Haa, he must be lost. Or is he on his way back to Peru? Have you got enough marmalade for him? Shall we send you some??? Paddington mini me's were everywhere at Christmas this side of the pee. All special ones cos he was 50 last year!! Kind of cute isn't he? Bet he's tasty too.

Wiry wags, Eric

We love those little bear paws on his soles. Full disclosure -- Mom has bear stuffies in the closet, including a very very flat brown bear that she had when she was eleven. But no Paddington Bear, although we believe she coveted one for a long time.

Stay away and let muzzer enjoy!!!

Hey Gussie,
ant to see the stuff inside the stuffies. The stuffies, few that they are, around here refer to homer J. as The Terminater. It doesn't matter how cute any stuffy is; Homer J. must go all the way, any toy he must destroy.

Kathryn and Ari said...

Oh, we just love Paddington! Of course, at our house we have different ways of demonstrating that love. One of us thinks the best way is by tearing out all of his stuffing!

Rudy said...

Wow I think our rat friend Tweak is maybe bigger than that little bear!
I bet that bear is nicer than Tweak, too; he gets crabby whenever I come up to talk to him. Mom doesn't have any stuffies that small!
