The 15th October is Schnitzel the Schnauzer’s birthday!

This adorable little Schnauzer dog is named after the popular Austrian dish. According to his poem, Wiener Schnitzel is his favourite food!.

Did you know, the Miniature Schnauzer breed of dog first originated in Germany in the 1800’s. They are also known as a Zwergschnauzer (Dwarf Schnauzer) and have an average lifespan of around 14 years! Quite an age for such a little guy!

Do you share a birthday with Schnitzel?

Ty have released many teddies over the years. Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Beanie Buddies, Attic Treasures, Ty Classic, etc, all have various teddies all in different styles and colours.

Some teddies are rarer than others, with the Billionaire bears fetching over $200-400 each!

Some were released for charity. Aware was released to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

There have been Christmas bears, like the 1999 Holiday Teddy, St. Patrick’s Day bears, like Clover, and Easter bears like Bonnet.

Ty even released some to mark that very special day that a boy or girl is born into the world.

Did you bring a teddy bear to work or school today?

Cecil is back on Amazon UK!

He was previously available on Amazon UK via third-party seller, The Entertainer. The few that they were selling sold out very quickly.

Now Cecil is back again on Amazon UK via another seller, Inspiration Gift Shop.

Judging from the previous time he was available, he probably won’t be around for long so get him quickly before they sell out!
