When I turned 5, my parents introduced me to my best friend. Chocolate the bear, my childhood stuffed animal, is and always will be my favorite animal. He is 18 inches of fuzzy bear cuteness topped off with a blue ribbed bow.
So what’s up with the turtle? Well…see I also collect turtle because the turtle is also my favorite animal. Turtles inspire me to take it easy and always wear a helmet. And I just don’t think I should have to pick between my very first teddy bear and the wonderful, gracefully laid back turtle.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the world would be a better place if we could all have two favorite animals.
