    I think, this has to get far more attention than it got up to now. I know very much what it means to lose a fluffy. Get home soon, Winston!

    I'm a friend of Winston's and I have a bear as well. I would be devastated if I lost him, and I can only emphasize with his owners. Please help find him.

    I have had my teddy bear for 24 years and I couldn't live without him. Please help find Winston. It might not seem important to some people, but he means the world to his humans and all his friends around the world.

    I am a much loved travel bear and have been with my human Mama for 25 years and with my Papa for 12 years. I make them happy, and I have made many people happy who have met me on my travels. Mama would also pay US$ 1000 reward to get me back if I were lost. I do not only give her joy but also hold memories of 25 years of travelling and living together. I have seen the world! I am more important than Mama's wedding ring :-) Kimi

    I for one completely understand the emotional attachment to the stuffed dog. When I was growing up, I had a stuffed snow leopard named Kitty that I carried with me for years. My family broke apart when I was very young, and Kitty became a subconscious symbol of the family and unity that I had lost. Once I forgot it on a vacation trip to east Tennessee, and my father and I searched for days until a resident returned it to me. Decades later, if I lost it on a trip anywhere, I would expend every resource available to retrieve it, not as a stuffed animal, but as a sentimental object of my childhood years that will never come again. I hope sincerely that someone in the LA area has found it and is generous enough to return it. Best wishes.

    I stumbled on this article this morning and it hit a note with me as I have a monkey who has been ‘ part of our family’ for 10 years now & I’d be devastated if he went missing. He was part of our wedding too & came on our round the world honeymoon!! I hope these folks find Winston, he is clearly missed very much. I will be sharing his Facebook page & Twitter. Good luck

    He is my friend and he went missing when I was with him. How I wish I had just looked over my shoulder and seen him on the ground. Please everyone keep your eyes open for him and keep sharing.

    THANKYOU

    What if someone bought the same dog for $25 bucks, claimed it's Winston and scored a grand off the Winston's owner. Easy money there.

      Kimpony said:

      A fake Winston would be recognized immediately. :-)

    Very sad that this cute dog hasn't been found yet. Am sure the couple must be very sad. Really do hope the person who found him returns him soon.

    Kimpony said:

    The person who has this dog really needs to try to find the owner. He was obviously loved. I mean, just look at his little outfit.

      Hannele said:
      October 17, 2013 at 7:37 AM

      Yes, Winston looks like one well-dressed dog! I was hoping he would be home by now.. Keep on searching!

    I heard the owner will be visiting media companies today in New Orleans. Maybe they will pay attention and get the little doggie home.

    Mark said:

    I have heard that some people think the Winston story is an ongoing joke between fluffies. But it is not! Winston's owners are soooo sad that he has not been found yet, and the $1000 reward is real! Please help to find Winston!

    Kathy said:
    October 20, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    Keep checking back here to see if Winston has been found since I feel so bad for the couple who lost him. :( Obviously he has to mean an awful lot to them to offer that type of reward. Really wish the person who has him would realize how important he is to them and return him. He has to be someone who doesn't have a heart if he deliberately isn't returning him or just doesn't realize people are looking so hard to find him. If that's the case it would be really nice if somebody could give some coverage to Winston's story so the person might know about him or maybe even somebody who knows the person who took him. Really hope Winston is returned soon.
