"Flea Market 2014" Lefty. One Armed Bear
This guy was found in a flea market for $10.00, but he was missing his left arm, both eyes, his paw pads needed replacements, and his ears need reattachment.
The socks were to keep the excelsior from escaping. Lefty's legs were in better shape than what we anticipated. What a relief.
View of his ear. I feel his pain...I had a similar boo-boo when I was a small child.
Close up of his limbs. Not too bad.
Done at last - new arm, new eyes, new paw & foot pads and ears secured! For the new arm, the Bear Doctor used new mohair and distressed it by pulling out the fibers and filed the arm with a metal file. Lefty no more..Just "Cutie Pie" for this little guy.
