I have a stuffed tiger named Hobbes. The owner of a local deli gave it to me when I was probably 4/5ish because I reminded him of Calvin. (From the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes). My brother used to make fun of me for having it, so I still keep him close just to spite him.

I forgot to add that a year ago I bought a stuffed gorilla. I hid it from them but one of my siblings saw and they told my parents. This time I they didn't gave it to my sister they gave it to my little cousin. well they didn't really took it form me this time.

They said to my little cousin if he would like a stuffed gorilla he should asked me if I would give him mine. WTF... I never told them I had a stuffed gorilla and they never saw it. They knew my cousin would bug me all day for it. I endured 8 hours of non stop "can I have your gorilla PLEASE!!!!!!".In the end I had to give it to him.

I guess its also childish for them but can't I be who I want to be. I'm not hurting anyone. Oh well... I'm ganna try and say someone gave me a stuff animal for my bday this year.

Thanks Lewis. I enjoyed the picture.

Marv,

Search the archive for something like "stuffed" and you will hit on a couple of threads on this very topic. There are LOTS of guys here who have furry friends. I have two: a cool puppy that one of my little brothers named Bongo, after his own (real) dog, and a German Shepherd puppy named Bruno, which was the name of my own shepherd.

Much love,
Larry

A former friend bought me a Tatty Teddy www.metoyou.co.uk as a gift years back, they're a nice neutral design, grey with a blue nose and intentionally designed to look battered. Lost the cardboard wraparound years ago.

So that became my defacto therapy bear, until I replaced it with a Pudsey www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey for non-UK peeps, the cartoon bear is the one. Will have to find a decent home for it, possibly post it to a charity or something.

I just wish my parents allowed my dog to go in the house. So he could hug him while I'm sleeping. I can still sneak him in thou sometimes.

Hi guys,
Nothing wrong with a teddy bear or any other stuffed animal. On a rather deep emotional level it is very comforting and healing. When we are young we use items like this to practice showing care, compassion, and nurturing. As we age we redirect those skills toward pets, and other humans. However, nothing says that we must give up those items. When I first started dealing with my CSA, I was twenty years old and I felt the need to have a small stuffed animal. I went to a store and bought a cheap racoon stuffed animal. I stood there and chose which one I wanted. I got some funny looks - this rough lookin dude on his way home from the factory buyin a stuffed animal. I loved it - it messed with their minds. I told the cashier I was "doing something nice for somebody." I didnt have to tell her it was me.

I later found my teddy bear in storage over at my parents' house (I had moved out when I was 18). It was mine since I was 3. I still have it. It is 38 years old now. I have a rubber ducky that sits on the dash of my car (and yes, it squeaks).

My family bought me a "Webkinz" owl (they know I like owls), which I use as my avatar.

I spend my day showing compassion to people in need and then nurturing my family; and still appreciate having a soft stuffed animal (or 4 or 5) around. I am a notably mature professional, husband and father; someone would be hard pressed to identify a negative trait here.

Peace,
Shadow+Walker
