Date of birth 10-9-96. Style number 4110. Poem inside: This dog is little but he has might. Keep him close when you sleep at night. He lays around with nothing to do. Until he sees its time to protect you! He is black and brown with one stitch out of place on his paw. The stitching came like that from the manufacture. No one is paw-fect but he is pretty close. It is how he was made. Bernie is in mint condition and came from a larger collection of Beanie Babies that were stored in plastic totes to keep them safe. The swing tag is in a plastic protective cover. He is 8.5 inches in length.
