May 20th, 2010

tn_2010-05-20 CarabellaWe have a new friend here at our house. This is the first time that the bear in question wasn’t exactly glad when Mom took her out of the bag to introduce her to all of us. Well, she wasn’t really mad—she just didn’t expect to see one of my hug!

This is Carabella. She is a Chadsworth Russ Berrie. Mom found her at Goodwill a few days ago. When she got out of the bag, she saw Caleb, and she frowned! Neither of them will really explain why or how they know each other! Caleb, who usually loves to get his picture taken for my blog, only very hesitantly accepted to be photographed with Carabella.tn_2010-05-20 Caleb and Carabella Mom says that we shouldn’t make them tell us—but that they will tell us when they feel like it. Both of them say that it isn’t anything terrible, but that they just don’t want to talk about it! Right now, Caleb is uncharacteristically stuck at my side, while Carabella is spending time with my friend, Fleur.

At first, I thought it might be that Caleb was peeved that Mom brought in a new friend his size that he would have to share clothes with, but Mom mentioned that she has plenty of girl clothes for her. Carabella does not want to be a travel bear, so it’s not that either. We will have to wait and see what they say!

  1. Sometimes it takes awhile for new friends to adjust. We know about that around here!

  2. I've noticed that bears take a little while to feel compfortably at home and it definately shows in their faces. I think sharing a plate of cookies helps to break the ice :o)

  3. What a beautiful new friend! How exciting! I do hope she and Caleb get along sooner rather than later, though.

  5. Hello Marlowe. You don't have to worry about Carabella. Sometimes it takes people a bit of time to settle in. When Mitch came to stay with us it took a while. Maybe you can buy her fish and chips. That helped with Mitch!
