"Friends, I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose. But fortunately I had my manuscript, so you see I was going to make a long speech, and there is a bullet - there is where the bullet went through - and it probably saved me from it going into my heart. The bullet is in me now, so that I cannot make a very long speech, but I will try my best."

Thinking about it, maybe I should have made him a bull moose. But then I wouldn't have been able to show off his adowable stuffy wuffins. I don't know if stuffed animals count for this, but it wasn't specified, and a bleeding bear wouldn't have been nearly as shirtworthy. Who knows.

Nearly being assassinated didn't stop President Theodore Roosevelt from giving his speech. I'm pretty sure the result would have been the same if he had been a teddybear -- less because of how awesome and manly he is in this case and more because he has layers of fluff and no internal organs, but still.

It being mostly blue has nothing to do with me getting his political alignment wrong and everything with it looking better in blue.

Agreed, a realistic bleeding bear probably wouldn't go over big, but leaking stuffin' sure should. Lol! Besides, that's how we got 'Teddy' bear, anyway.

I love this design. You did a great job incorporating some of TR's features. The level of detail is amazing, definitely above and beyond the other designs.
