Pet-Peeves: Bear did not have any as a puppy, but as he got older he seems to not like thunderstorms. He can sense when a bad thunderstorm is on it's way into our area. He will start whining and barking then come and snuggle up next to us on the couch.
Favorite Toy: His hot dog and toy rope
Favorite Food: puppy chow and peanut flavored treats
Favorite Walk: Around the neighborhood, in the backyard, and on the greenway near our home.
Best Tricks: playing fetch, playing tug of war, shake hands, and barking to let us know when he needs to go outside and potty.
Arrival Story: Our beloved basset hound Oscar passed to the rainbow bridge back in 2008, which broke our hearts. We decided to look for another addition to the family to help us feel better, so one day we looked in the newspaper and there was some people in the next town over from us that had about six Labradoodle puppies for free that were looking for a forever home, so we called them and went to look at them. There was one puppy at three weeks old we fell in love with that came up to me first chewing on my shoe strings and wanting to play. We knew right then this puppy was the one for us. It was love at first sight.
Bio: Bear loves people, kids, and other small dogs to play with too. Overall, Bear is a very affectionate, fun loving and one intelligent guard dog.

Dogster is a great site. We have been on Dogster for more than five years.

EX: health, behavior, big dogs, small dogs, puppy place, and breed specific forums just for your breed, check them out! Very informational and lots of fun groups to join along with games too.Thank you for all you do to make it a fun friendly place for all dog lovers.
OMD!!!! Today I received some great news that I'm PDPC's Dog of the Month for June! I am so surprised, excited and honored! Thank you so much PDPC! It means so much to us and we are very touched by it! We will never forget this. I love my picture. It is too cute with that crown on my head. Quite stunning i might add! That throne does look like it was made just for me. It is by far one of my favorite group's. There are such great pups there! I wear this crown proudly. Now i must tend to my royal duties and greet everyone.
Our neighbor has a basset hound that we see all the time when we go for walks around our neighborhood at his house barking at us through the fence. On Sunday morning, mom sees him strolling down the street by himself without his owner and when she said "Hey there little fellow" he luckily came to mom quickly and she took him home, safe from the dangers of the road. I was watching all of this out the window i might add. When she came in the house I told mom she could us my leash to walk him home to his owner since he had a collar for a place to snap a leash on, but be sure you bring my leash back and wash it afterwards. He has got out once before when his owner's didn't know it until later after they came home from work. We are thinking he must have dug out from under the fence is how he escaped. He resembles Oscar and brings back memories of him for mom every time she sees him with those long soft ears. She kept wanting to say Oscar so much when she seen him. He is very sweet and friendly dog that leads very well. He had no dog tag with any identification whatsoever with a name and phone number which you should always have on a dog to prevent a dog from getting lost or microchip. Luckily, we have seen the dog before and knew his owner he belonged to and some are not so lucky. Mom made me a bone-shaped dog tag that is blue (my favorite color) at Petsmart when i first arrived at my forever home with her name, address, and phone number (like i would run away from mom not in a million years) Bol to prevent me from getting lost.
All in all, it was a happy ending for all. We didn't want to see him get run over by a car or anything bad to happen to him. It was so beautiful to see the little fellow we found reunited with his daddy. His folks sure were happy to see him and relieved that we found him and thanked us for his safe return. Although, he wasn't really concerned much about being lost because he was enjoying his adventure at the present time in a unknown world Bol!!!! Heck, i don't blame him because I would be too.
