"Moose Me A Dance!", 12" Victorian Lady Moose Animal Doll E-Pattern - Victorian Animal Series
"Moose Me A Dance!" knows that her brother, "Moose Me Victorian!" really didn't want to have anything to do with joining the "Victoriana High Society Tea Club." But, she knew that he would do it for her. He knew how much she just loves to dance and would never turn down an opportunity for her to do so. So, when his friend "Bearly Victorian, Ryan" invited him - well, how could he say no. "Moose Me Victorian!" was a Victorian moose but he considered himself every bit the man's man. Hunting was in his blood and had been for generations. In fact, he excelled at marksmanship and had won the county title several years in a row.
