    Are you able to tell me the name of Teddy’s owner? I have a photograph of Teddy sitting on a front porch with “Joe” and Teddy Junior – signed to Fred and Family – Fred being my grandfather. I think “Joe” was a cousin but I cannot trace him as I do not know his last name. I also have a signed picture including paw print of Teddy wearing glasses and smoking a pipe!

      Your photos sound great! According to the Los Angeles TImes, March 2, 1919, Teddy was raised and trained by Joe Simpkins. The Press Democrat, May 12, 1921, says Teddy was born in Sonoma County, CA.
