Monday started out pretty nice,getting to
have lunch with CJ and Tom on a
beautiful sunny day.
Then Tuesday happened and along came a
HUGE black bear. Teddy barked and
barked. That little dog was going to protect
me. Fortunately we were able to get into
the house. (I am not to good at painting bears
and I really didn't think he would stay still
for me to draw him.LOL)
So on to Wednesday.
After Teddy's run in with the bear I felt he
deserved a spa day.
My little hero!
On Thursday Washington Fish and Wildlife came to
access the HUGE bear problem. They want to give it
2 weeks to see if it comes back. If it does they will
try a catch and a hard release on him. That is where
Mishka the Karelian Bear Dog comes in. Mishka is a \
beautiful dog who belonged to Rocky Spencer, who was tragically
killed in a helicopter accident in 2007. He was a dear friend and is missed.
Mishka now lives with Bruce Richards who works for the fish and game
dept. Mishka is a bear dog and his training is the best. You can
read what they do on the wdfw.wa.gov site. Just google bear dog.
It was good to see Mishka again.
Friday I had lunch with the posse. We ate a
Pallino Pasteria and yes this time I broke
my diet. "me bad" But it was sooooooo good!
Today Saturday I am cleaning house all day. :-(
And watching for bear!
