Blessed Friends Bear by Kids Preferred

Specific Location: Roseville, MN, in field behind the old McCarrons School / Roseville Armory
This is a Kids Preferred Blessed Friends Bear that I found while out with my partner and our dog. I saw a noticeable lump under the smooth blanket of snow on the field and found this little guy underneath. I don't think he had been there very long, but did have some dirt on his side and had been frozen at least overnight. The hands are sewn together and he previously had a voice box inside (removed by me).
While it's been a few weeks since I found him, please be assured that Teddy has been well cared for! Because part of him had been in the wet dirt, I wanted to get him cleaned right away after he was found. Unfortunately, this meant doing some "teddy surgery" to remove his talk box and the dirty stuffing before he could go through the washing machine. Sadly, perhaps due to the cold or wetness, the voice box did not work anymore and was discarded. However, the good news is that the dirt was completely removed by the washer! There is no staining to be seen and I have given him fresh new stuffing and stitched him back up. He has had a great time hanging out with some of our resident stuffed animals and is welcome to stay as long as he needs.
