tracking bears by the sea

you may already know that bears love the sea. I did not know this until I decided it was a good idea to move 20 miles out onto the Atlantic. Bears are swarming here, you are never without tracks. Pretty lucky for me cause I have been tracking bear for nearly two decades.

I started out small, but now have the help of my two assistants, wolf dog and hound dog.

Wolf dog, always ready for the track, is eager and lively. She uses her agility and endurance to assist in the trials. Hound dog is the mastermind behind the operation. She presses her powerful ears against the dirt to listen for the vibrations of passing bear. She is demonstrating this below.

  1. The photo here is well done. Dramatic colours and the what is clearly eastern shore seen through the wind twisted trees and exposed rocks. The ponderous weight of the words that you choose underscore the humour that lies there. Good for you. Good luck with your new Blog. Dont flag (hee hee pun) and learn to bear the weight of waiting for readers. It helps to remember that writing is good for the private soul and it does some good to show feelings for dogs who themselves cannot read anyway unless of course you are talking about my dog. We raise cats but have a dog since there are foxes about and we fear for our cats.
