Microcredit Sustainability Tour Comments Off on What Do Terry & Winnie Have in Common?
Both are favorite sons of Winnipeg.
The real bear cub Winnie was sold to his owner for $20 by a hunter in White River and was named after Colebourne’s adopted city, Winnipeg, before being taken off to WWI as the company mascot. Colebourne was an animal vet.
Same year Winnie was donated to London Zoo, where amongst his many admirers, was AA Milne & his son Christopher Robin (Milne) who authored the famous children’s story. The name Pooh came from a duck they knew.
Terry was born in Winnipeg.
?When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.? 
A.A. Milne

Harry Colebourn and Winnie, 1914
