A long time ago there was a little girl who grew up in a quiet neighborhood in a house with her mom, her dad, and her big brother. This girl was not a regular girl that liked dresses and dolls, and pink, girly things. No, she preferred the color blue and played with animals; stuffed animals and plastic animals and she read animal books. She did have a couple of Barbie dolls as she got older but they were only there to ride on the plastic horses.
She had many stuffed animal friends that lived in her room. Many came and went over the years of the girl’s life but there were some that stayed forever.
Even after she grew up and begin to ride real horses and work with live animals, her special stuffed friends stayed with her tucked away in the closet.
And one day after the girl had grown up and was raising real live puppies in her home, she decided to remember her old stuffed friends and name her puppies after them.
(But actually, this is just the beginning for the friends from the Hundred Acre Wood!)
