Heartbroken Kid Loses His Bear, But Then This Hotel Makes It All Worth It.

The Grand Hyatt Kaua’i is a classic Hawaiian resort located on the sunny South Shore of Kaua’i. It’s a place where people from all over come to relax and unwind from their everyday lives. It’s also the resort that Anna Pickard had chosen to stay in with her son while on vacation. They had a lovely time in Hawaii, but all good things came to an end and they had to go home. But it wasn’t until she had returned to her everyday life that she realized she had left an important member of the family behind. It was her son Doozer’s favorite teddy bear, Sutro. So, she reached out to the Grand Hyatt Kaua’i hotel and their response was incredible.

Anna Pickard assumed that Sutro, her son’s favorite teddy bear, was gone forever, but he wasn’t.

It turns out that Sutro was having the time of his life. Anna emailed the hotel to ask if they had seen a white bear answering to the name of Sutro. The hotel emailed her back. Apparently, Sutro was hanging with the laundry team, and he wasn’t alone.

Sutro the bear had made a new friend, who is a stuffed seal, and they were loving life at the resort.

Together, Sutro and the seal were hanging by the pool and enjoying a spa day. Clearly, Sutro wasn’t upset that his human family had forgotten him. He turned a disadvantage into an advantage and was now chillaxing during his extended vacay.

While Anna worried that her son would be upset over the loss of her bear, Sutro was living it up.

He was also helping the staff at the salon out. We bet this lady never thought she’d end up getting a manicure from a stuffed bear. Obviously Sutro was more than happy to work to pay for the extra time he spent at the resort.

Sutro and his friend also took a walk through the resort to figure out what they were going to do next.

Along the way they met the gardeners and perched themselves on the walkway’s wooden handrail to take a selfie. They also enjoyed the resort’s beautiful garden in the background. This was plushy heaven!

We’re not sure if Sutro ever learned how to swim, but thankfully, his seal friend was a total expert.

The two of them had a lovely time at the pool. Afterwards, they dried off by sitting on the rocks. Then they took another selfie so Sutro could let Anna and Doozer know that he was actually doing okay on his own.
