My name is Katie and I am the lucky girl who Maxine credits as the inspiration for Build-A-Bear Workshop®. This is a credit that Maxine generously bestowed upon me, though I feel it is equally correct to say that I was merely a young girl who was willing to share my definite point of view on teddy bears and other furry friends!

As part of his world tour, beginning in Canada, then to Slovenia and Ireland, Champ headed for the U.S. for a whirlwind visit, first stopping in Georgia to see Quinnlin and Champerina, before continuing on to World Bearquarters in Missouri for a quick hello.
Two Paws Up To All Our Military Branches!
Saturday, May 19, 2012
Days like this hit a little closer to home since my human-owner joined the Army. They seem even more real with PFC Benjamin Jeffrey now deployed to Afghanistan. Today is Armed Forces Day. But do you know what Armed Forces Day is? Most people know about Memorial Day - which is next weekend by the way – and of course July 4th Independence Day is big too.
Yes, yes, yes I would love to write about this very important day.
I even gathered a bunch of my military furry friends from General Sarge HQ for the occasion. We made a stop at Central Park in my hometown and posed for a picture. We got some interesting looks from people as they passed by, but we saw a lot of smiles too because everyone loves furry friends! If you look real close you will even see my furry-friend brother, Rockin’ Sarge, in the right hand side of the picture sitting in front of my tent and playing his guitar. Rockin’ and his new wife Photo Lady Sadii Sarg – who took this picture – moved back to New York State to be near my human-owner’s parents while my human-owner is deployed. It made us all very happy.
