My dog, Zeke, likes to chase things. Particularly he likes to chase pickup trucks, motorcycle, quads, skidoos and bicycles. Oh and squirrels, grouse, gophers, mice and any other small mammals he sees.
Yesterday when we were out walking he decided he wanted to chase this…
I had to say no…
Around noon today I was sitting in the sunroom, having tea and toast, with my back to the sun which was being lovingly warmed. Zeke suddenly leapt up, growled and ran out barking. By the time I got out of my chair I saw he was chasing this…up a tree
It was a little cub, not too scary, but it took me a while to get Zeke into the house. I had to go out and grab him, all the while looking anxiously around for mama. Zeke sat at the bottom of the tree, alternately barking and wagging his tail. Does he think it’s a dog?
The bear stayed in the tree for about an hour. I watched him out my sewing room window while cutting some squares for a baby quilt. Then he finally decided to come down.
A nibble of dandelion leaf for sustenance… and then he was off.
He was about five feet away from the house… I’m glad mama bear didn’t show up…
Now I’m back to sewing!
