Today i thought about Bear. The best dog ever . He was a family member. He died of cancer, the vet couldn't get it in time . I had the privilege of knowing him for 5-6 yrs. Bear was smart & funny! And by god he knew it!! He was the best bathrobe cleaner..he would lick & lick until it was all clean. Bob's robe was the best for that . Licking was his thing.He loved fruity scented lotion & would chase you around the house trying to catch a swipe of your hands or legs .Bear was crafty too! He was a pound puppy,abandoned & meek when he first got to his new home. but his personality came alive in no time. The boy knew how to work the dinner table..lol . He was cool & casual as he slid his head in sideways, like he wanted to be pet . And then he'd go for the kill. I think he liked everything . Loved blueberries from his backyard. Bear would stand up on his hind legs , straight up and use his paws to pick & eat the blueberries. What a sight! He chases me in my dreams & puts his head on my pillow . I never knew i could love a dog this much. I be the is chasing sticks & balls at a dog park in Heaven.
