The Guardian , Thursday 3 August Barney the doberman guard dog stands over the remains of the soft toys he mauled. On Tuesday night the doberman pinscher guard dog, after six years’ blameless service, went berserk: Barney went on to rampage through hundreds of rare teddies, all on loan to Wookey Hole Caves in Somerset, and so valuable that the insurers had insisted on a guard dog to protect the premises at night. The aftermath, according to shocked staff, was appalling: Either there was a rogue scent of some kind on Mabel which switched on Barney’s deepest instincts, or it could have been jealousy: I was just stroking Mabel and saying what a nice little bear she was.

Kirby is a late s teddy bear. Very small and in the worst state. When Kirby arrived at the door I was quick to pull his package open, I found the edge and wildly pulled as hard as I could to release him from his plastic postage envelope, in that instant I immediately regretted what I had just done, like mustard gas, the smell puffed out with great speed as I pulled, it wafted straight into my face and entered my mouth and nostrils!
I bent over double and began to cough and splutter, eventually dry-heaving a few times before I managed to pull open the front door for air and regain my decorum. Look at him, does he stink? Kirby smelt like the inside of a chain smoking year old hag, a Disney witch with a constant supply of Marlboro Reds hidden inside the wart of the end of her nose…actually he also looked like one too.

History[ edit ] A political cartoon in The Washington Post spawned the teddy bear name. The name teddy bear comes from former United States President Theodore Roosevelt , who was commonly known as “Teddy” though he loathed being referred to as such. There were several other hunters competing, and most of them had already killed an animal. A suite of Roosevelt’s attendants, led by Holt Collier ,  cornered, clubbed, and tied an American black bear to a willow tree after a long exhausting chase with hounds.
They called Roosevelt to the site and suggested that he should shoot it. He refused to shoot the bear himself, deeming this unsportsmanlike, but instructed that the bear be killed to put it out of its misery,   and it became the topic of a political cartoon by Clifford Berryman in The Washington Post on November 16,
