I picked up Paddington from a shelter near me in October 2006. We thought he was 6 or 7 at the time. I remember him dancing because he was so excited I had come. He was a happy boy and he went to Paige's for fostering.His new parents kept his name and even bought him a statue of Paddington Bear when they went to London.Paddington was a wonderful boy, and I loved his plaid bed and the tongue.His favorite thing to hold in his mouth was a rock. His foster mom, Paige, said he would find the biggest rock he could hold and carry it around with her. At his adoptive home, they would put his pet rock in a sock for him to carry.His best friend was Amelia. She was also adopted from us and they became great buddies.They loved just laying side by side. I know she will really miss him.His mom and dad, Fiona and Bill, said, "Paddy was a great soul, and we will miss his cuddles, sweet little face and endearing ways." We love you, sweet Paddington Bear. Rest in peace, sweet one.
