This might be the happiest day of my short, furry life. Well, the day that Ozzie gave me my bunny George, that was a pretty good day. And the day Ozzie asked Harriet to marry him, that was a good day, too. I guess I've had a lot of good days in my life.

You might be wondering how we got Ozzie to purchase the sheets for us. Well, it involved consistent and gentle pressure. When Ozzie would be enjoying a quiet moment, one of us would slide up to Ozzie and say, "Um ... hello. When we moved to Indiana, you promised us silk sheets and cable TV. Did you lie to us?" I don't know why, but Ozzie found it very difficult to read a book, or cook dinner, or watch TV in the face of our earnest and gentle pleading. Um ... he broke down pretty fast. We've only been after him for six months. He's a softie. We bears are very patient. We always win staring contests, and we can pester a person if the need strikes us.

Um ... I wonder if Ozzie is just trying to co-opt our bear suffrage movement? He seemed to think that we might leave him alone now that we have silk sheets. Um ... I don't usually like being the bear-er of bad news, but we definitely aren't stopping until we have cable. Or satelite TV. Either one would be fine.

"The fur flies without cable buys"

"100 Channels or we'll storm your flannels."

The teddy bear power movement has only just begun.
