J in Querum has asked me to tell you that Brian is alive and well after his encounter with the washing machine, that cleaned up his soiled pants. She felt that the last photo of him pegged to the washing line by his left ear, gave the impression that he was being ill treated. That is not the case, and this is to put the record straight!
The photo shows Brian and Vicki at a recent tea party in Querum.
Now it is not necessary for me to contact the "Querum Small Teddy Bear Animal Rescue Squad." Thank you J for pointing out that Brian is in safe hands, and staying over the winter with his friends in Querum.
