Todays adventure started at 5am! We got up, loaded up and left for the lake. Dad wanted to get there before the sun came up! I told Dad that was just to early for me, but he wasn't listening!
When we got to the lake, Dad got the boat in the water and we started our voyage! I figured I would catch a lot of Z's on board Dads boat so I wasn't to worried, but not long after we anchored in our favorite fishing hole and I was finally sound asleep and snoring, I got a whiff of something. I jumped to attention like any good old guard dog would do.
No It wasn't an Osprey I smelled...
And...it most certainly was not the silly CAT TAILS! Which by the way look nothing like a cats tail! Who comes up with these names for plants anyhow?
Neither was it the quacky ducks!
The smell I smelled was definitely not an Egret either...
No this was a very distinct smell. I had to bark to get my Mom and Dads attention...It was something much bigger.
Yup there it is...
A black bear...
And not just one...Mom and Dad said there were seven altogether!
I lost count. I got tired of counting bears!
The bears seemed to be searching for something to eat. I am glad they decided to look somewhere else.
They were pretty big!
They liked the water!
They also seem to like to chase each other!
We watched them for a long time until they were out of sight!
Then pretty soon another one would come around the corner!
And, sometimes we saw two bears at the same time!
Even after we left that area and went to another place we saw one more bear!
Needless to say, I was so exhausted after all that bear watching I passed out on the blanket in my chair!
I was so glad to get home to my nice warm bed and not have to worry about bears anymore!
Until next time,
May you all have a tastey bone to chew on!
