Since I can remember Grandpa has always called me his little huggerbugger. I often wondered just what a hugbug was. I was pondering this question the other day and so I turned on my computer and looked it up. The information I found was very vague, but it gave me a good idea about this often unheard of creature. I compiled my data and came up with a short description of this awesome animal.

A hugbug is an animal that loves to make others smile. It has long arms and short legs and can sometimes be seen roaming around your house or back yard. Most of the time it likes to sit on the couch with you and eat peanuts. You canít help but spoil it because it is so cute. Hugbugs can come in a variety of colors and shapes. Some are short and round and some are tall and skinny. The most common kind you will see around here are ones with peach skin and brown hair, but their offspring can come in a variety of colors and pigments. The female hugbug is the most loving when it comes to grandfathers, but with mommy hugbugs, the males seem to show love most. A hugbug likes to eat anything. It will sometimes turn itís nose up at vegetables, but boy does it love popcorn. Itís favorite thing to do is wrap itís long arms around your neck and give you hugs, but it also likes to snuggle, cuddle, and the youngest of the species loves to blow kisses. It communicates by making sounds with itís mouth and itís various facial expressions can help you tell when it is sad or when it is happy. No two hugbugs are alike and some give more hugs than others.
