RIP Bear

 Sunset in the creek - 01-12 -12

My heart is heavy as I think of my extended California family who lost a beloved pup last night.  Bear was 12 and had spent his entire life with one family including his birth mom Foxy.

Bear was terrified of thunder and literally was scared to death (I always thought of that phrase as an exaggeration until now...) as a violent storm passed their home.

He was such a sweet boy and I loved petting and scritching him when we went to visit! I'm going to miss him so.

This is a video the bestie shot of him on one of our visits last year:

That is so very sad. Phantom has a great fear of storms too, but his reaction seems to come before the storm arrives. Soft woos and gentle hugs to Bear's family.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

There is no thunder at the Rainbow Bridge. You will never be afraid again, dear Bear.

Run Free!

We are sorry to hear about your friend Bear. May he be free from scary thunderstorms at the Bridge. There is nothing but sunshine, cool breezes and running creeks for them to play in. God Bless you, The HoundDogs and Mom

oh, I'm so sorry. I always wondered if Spot would have a heart attack when it stormed since he was so upset. I guess it's possible. But Bear's family must be so sad, I feel for them.
