April 22, 2013 ~ Sadly, Bear has gone to be with his beloved OJ. Bear passed away this evening at 6:15 p.m. He will be greatly missed by his Mum, Dale…and many friends.
Bear is a very special boy ~ with one blue eye and one brown, part husky and part I’m not sure. I’ve known him for about 11 years since he was a pup and he’s always been very skittish with people in his home ~ even now and he’s the size of a small pony! Well, I’m very happy to report that after all these years of gentle patience on my part, along with many high end dog biscuits, he finally allowed me to pet him ~ all by myself, with no assistance from his Mum (Dale) and Dad (OJ) ! A huge feat! Bless you Bear! (Sorry David..he likes me best!)

Update: February 28, 2012
Sadly Bear’s beloved Master passed away suddenly in October…. poor Bear has struggled with the loss and hasn’t been the same since. He misses his Dad!…so much so, that he’s lost 10 kg in the months since OJ died. We’re praying he can rally and find the strength to go on.
