Rufus is looking a little rough these days. He's been with us for over three months, since T-Bear's diagnosis, and has been deeply and persistently loved. He goes just about everywhere T-Bear goes. He was lost under a bush in the front yard for a couple of weeks (thank goodness we had a back-up bear), so he's been through the wash once. His clothes are looking a little rough, too. So, Angel Bear decided that he wanted to sew a new shirt for Rufus. He pulled out some yellow felt, I helped him cut out a very crude pattern, and after one false start by him, and cutting out a new pattern, I sewed it up. Rufus is thrilled. Brother Bear is now helping out with a blanket and pillow.
