Brown Bear Cub with Fish, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska
In September, Alaska’s coastal brown bears are at their fluffy, and pudgiest best. Their winter coats have grown in thick and full and they have fattened up in preparation for hibernation. The cubs looked almost round at times, like this little guy in the top photo, after just making off with what was left of Mom’s dinner.

    Pudgie-Wudgie was a cub bear.
    Pudgie-Wudgie had fur, not hair.
    Pudgie-Wudgie dined on a fish head.
    Then, Pudgie-Wudgie waddled off to bed.

    Hence, the standard and still true popularity of the ‘teddy bear.’ My first teddy bear in the mid-50s looked just like this one!
