Mummy's Boy, Daddy's Boy, Bubby, Bubba, Beary Boy, Puppa, Puppa Boy

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

Being right between Mum and Dad, being with people in general, walks in the neighborhood, visits from Grandma (and her goodie bag), Aunt Bon Bon and Aunt Heddie

Not getting enough attention, not being a part of the conversation, not getting enough chewies, not being noticed by other people while on walks . . .

Favorite Toy:
Tug of War Ropes

Favorite Food:
You name it . . . bananas, green peppers, red/orange/yellow peppers (keep him out of the garden), most people food

Favorite Walk:
In the neighborhood - he loves being noticed and has his regular people stops along the way.

Best Tricks:
I swear he knows everything we say . . .

Arrival Story:
We went to look at a litter of 4-week old pups; they were in an enclosure while this 10wk puppy was running around the breeder's basement; he had been returned that very day because his previous owners said he was too rambunctious and was jumping on their young daughter; needless to say we walked out with him that day - we were simply meant to have him.

In his younger days was prone to lots of surgeries - hip replacement before he was one, he then ate a rock which got lodged in his stomach, he got a paw sliced on something so that was another surgery, and then a knee surgery . . . whew . . . can you say pet insurance?! UPDATE AUG '08: After a very short battle with bone cancer in that weakened right leg, his mum and dad - along with the support of the most wonderful vet clinic ever - helped Bear cross the Rainbow Bridge. He left with dignity and grace, giving kisses to the very end. We were unbelievably lucky and privileged to have had Bear to love for as long as we did. Thanks to all who loved him, and special thanks to Dr. Vana, who took such good care of our most special beautiful boy.
