Bear with me

Howdy blogaroos! Squirmy here on a super Saturday. And it’s already June 4 – where did the first three days of the month go?! That’s the kind of stuff that humans say. Where did the time go? It just disappeared. Where did it go? Just like I say after I eat and look in my food bowl…where did it go?

Well do you know what June 4 is? Of course you do – it’s National Black Bear Day!!!

It seems that lately there are more and more stories in the news about encounters with wildlife, like bears. Ya can’t really blame the animals- humans keep taking over their homes. Heck, when somebody even steps on my property, I go crazy! And the Boss goes crazy if someone is even walking on our road! We OWN this area. Or we like to think we do!

Here’s a link to info about what you should do if you encounter a bear while with your dog…

We have bears in our hood – but they seem to be most active in early Spring. Here’s two photos of a big guy in our yard a few years ago. In this one, he’s running down the luge run…

And in this one, he’s listening to the sound of crazy barking dogs…

That was a few years ago. Before I arrived. The bears around here have heard that there’s a crazy ricocheting mop that lives in our house, so they’ve stayed clear. Mind you, our neighbor took this one in their yard last Spring…

I’m not sure what I would do if I saw a bear – but the Warden doesn’t want to find out. She thinks the bear would be the one in trouble. Probably.

School was good yesterday. I was my average self. The Warden didn’t take any cheese treats – we ran out and she forgot to buy more. I had to settle for hotdogs. Listen – if she wants me to perform above average – she needs to branch out with some new treats. Not that I’ll EVER refuse a treat- but variety is a good thing. Training her is SUCH a challenge at times. But overall, I guess she’s doing well. I’ll keep working with her because I do think she has potential.

OK – GBH time. Gotta go suit up.

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
