"Palooka" was my Dad's bear. Dad was born in 1930. Probably purchased in circa 1934 or 35. I have a drawing Dad did of him with his larger bear and a rabbit.

We sure do have stories, the most famous of them being Palooka being washed from the rocks out into the Gulf of Mexico, and Mt Dad was heartbroken. 3 days later, as he played on the rocks, Dad spotted a soaking wet Palooka! He was purchased by my GrNdparents, probably in Detroit, MI.
