A little bit more than three weeks ago the results have been posted on the webiste of the Taiwan Teddy Bear Association. I could hardly believe it when I read that my little George won the 1st place award, because the other nomianted bears were truly outstanding. Countless times I went back to their website to check if it was really true that I won, but since Monday I can be sure:
I would like to thank the Taiwan Teddy Bear Association for this wonderful early Christmas present, for organising this great competition and for taking such good care of little George.
I would also like to thank the judges and all the collectors and bear enthusiasts who voted for George.
I would like to send a very special thank you to George Clooney for being such a great model for teddy bears and for being such an inspiration.
