Monday Mischief – It’s a Bear!

They finally decided to come back from their fishing trip!

I gave them the whole ‘I’ve been so sad routine’ to get extra cuddles, but the truth is I had a blast at Cosmo’s house next door!

They weren’t very lucky with the fishing (which made Mum happy!) :) But they did get to hang out with a Bear on the trip!

I think everyone was too excited to get a less blurry shot!  I would have been all cool about it if I was there! :)

My Mum has never seen a Bear before and this one just came wandering through the complex they were staying at….

First of all my Mum saw it and thought “Oh how cute, there’s a Bear” and thought it looked very much like Leroy and Sherman the Brown Newfoundlands co-hosts of this blog hop! – Then she suddenly realized it wasn’t Leroy or Sherman and yelled to everyone else who’d already got into the car “OMD it’s a Bear!”

I gather there was a lot of excitement to follow, especially when they drove around the corner and saw it again.  It was really close to some children walking their little dog across the street and a man who was walking just by it and didn’t realize!

So I guess I missed all the mischief from the Bear, and I sure won’t be telling Mum about the mischief Cosmo and I got up to! :)

Have you ever seen a Bear in real life?

  1. Glad you had a blast at Cosmo´s house !
    NO I have never seen a Bear in real life and neither have my mom or dad-person.
    If you don´t count Bears in Zoo :)
    Happy Monday !

    • Hi Charlie Rascal,

      My Mum hadn’t seen one before in the wild either, she said it was scary and exciting all at the same time!

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  2. Whoa!! a bear!! How cool is that!
    I like to stay away from him, but it’s still a cool sight

  3. Oh yikes! That is not good. Too close to people and out in the daylight too. Hopefully people were careful with their food and garbage and the bear moved on.

    Yes I have seen a bear (brown bear) in Alaska. It was across a river. Bears can move very fast if they want to, so we were very careful while watching it.

    And you may not like to hear this, but hubby has hunted black bear and the meat was quite good. :)

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      I didn’t know that Bears could be super fast, that guy in the video sure needed to get out of the way – everyone was yelling to him, but he didn’t seem to understand?

      Big wags to all

      Snoops :)

  4. Snoopy – holy cow – a bear! Wow, that would have been cool if you had been there, you could have chased it! Happy Mischief Monday!

    • Hi Slimdoggy

      Mum says she’s glad I wasn’t there and I sure wouldn’t have been allowed to chase it – I wonder if I could have played with it, cos it did look pretty friendly? :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  5. That is cool! Lady saw a number of bears in the wild near Vancouver last year. There was a momma and 2 cubs by the side of the road. She loved seeing them!
    Can’t wait to hear about your adventures with Cosmo! Lee and Phod

  7. The closest thing I’ve seen to a bear is Sherman and Leroy. lol:) except of course at the zoo!
    That is cool and scary that you saw a bear that close! I’ve often had people do a double take when I’m walking Leroy and Sherman, I really do think some of them think I am walking a bear at first glance!

  8. Hee! That does look like Sherman or Leroy! But we’d love to see them in real life. Never seen a bear (outside the zoo) but have been to a lot of places where bears might be roaming. Don’t really wanna run in to one!

  9. A Bear?! I wanna meet a bear!! We used to have a dog down the street named Bear… does that count? ;)

    Woofs & huggies! <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  10. That bear was really up to mischief. My person has seen bears when she was on vacation in Alaska, but they were out in the wilderness where they were supposed to be. She says that once though, one of her co-workers saw a bear across the street from his house – not very far from where we live.

  11. Scary! We’ve seen bear here in the Ozarks and definitely keep our distance! When we lived in VA we saw more of them, often in town :-0

  12. I’ve never seen a real bear…just some Newfies like Leroy and Sherman. They are big enough! Glad you had a fun time at Cosmo’s house…you should tell us dogs about that mischief, we can keep a secret ;)

  13. A-roooo! Good thing you stayed home, Snoopy! And good plan about not telling the mom about any of your and Cosmo’s mischief – when the mom’s away….. :)

  14. Oh very cool, we like seeing bears, although we haven’t seen very many. Did you get our email that you won the frosty paws backpack? We just need an address and will get it right out. Woo-hoo

  15. Snoopy, that is SO COOL. I’ve seen bears while camping in Tennessee and North Caroline. They’re beautiful. Too bad you couldn’t chase that bear!

    Yikes! A very big bear who probably ate all the fish

  17. Wow – now that is mischief!

  18. Wow, that is so exciting. Not sure how I’d react. That bear seemed kinda chill, though. Still the same…my goodness!! Have a lovely day!

  19. OMD it DOES look like leroy and sherman! BOL!
    I would have DIED!
    Noooo I have never seen a bear just walking around like that! Did you shoot that video? OMD!!!
    How could the man NOT realize a bear was strolling down the street!!!??? OMD!
    That’s not your “average” bear! BOL!
    Barks and licks and love,

  22. We had a bear right in our yard once. Our dog Shelby had just gone outside, when she saw it, she came running right back into the house! It was cool to see it from safely inside the house. But then it tore apart my bird feeder!
    Your Mom will be so busy telling the bear story, she’ll forget to even ask if you and Cosmo got into any mischief, so that worked out well for you. :)

  23. Scary!!! Glad you had a good time with Cosmo

  24. You mean a bear in real life besides the zoo? Actually, yes. When I was a girl, my mom would take us camping in the Oregon wilderness. We’d follow logging trails deep into the woods and camp along a river. I loved to go exploring and would sometimes see bears in the distance fishing in the river.

  25. Snoopy, you always have the best time with Cosmo. But missing out on a bear?! Wow. That must have been neat to see but it is probably safer to keep your mischief away from the presence of a bear :-)

  26. The bear probably ate all the fish or scared them away…which is why they weren’t very successful :)

  27. wow, I thought bears lived in a forest far, far away! I would be totally shocked to see one in my neighbourhood or in a holiday complex I was staying at :) Quite the adventure!

  28. Very cool that she got to see one Snoopy. I got to see my first one in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago. I have seen wild ones in Skyline Drive in VA before, but they have TONS of them there. The PA one was a nice surprise!

  29. Your so lucky, neither typist nor I have seen a bear!

  30. Holy Honey! It’s a bear. Now that’s a whole lot of mischief… imagine them knocking at your window.

  31. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the
    text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
