So happy that Herschel was adopted, but there is a little pink void in the studio where he sat... They each take a piece of my heart with them when they leave. You know, my daughter used to kiss them all on the nose before they each took their trip to their new homes. Now that she is married and lives far away, it is kinda sad to send them off without that memory. Come to think of it, this is the first bear I have had to send away on my own... Don't be mislead, though. He still received plenty of love and hugs from me!
