About 3 years ago, a friend called & said she'd had a bad day and she could use a drink & a hug. Boozy's creator wanted to help so he went to the store & bought a basic teddy bear & a bottle of Crown Royal. He cut the stuffing out of the back & placed the bottle in the back. Then, he drilled a hole in the cap & places a plastic tube from the bottle down the left arm & out. He then sewed up the bear and gave it to her and said, "Here you go, a drink and a hug, all rolled up into one!" She loved it and her friends wanted one also, so Boozy Bear was born!
