Hello to my one or possibly two loyal readers! How are you!? How was your summer?
In my last post I told you about the bear that was visiting us.
Anywhoodle, the trap was removed after a month. Let's see, that was a Wednesday and on that Friday, yes 2 days later, as mom and I were out for our morning walk, we encountered the bear. Now mom's greatest fear was meeting the bear on our walk and/or having the bear come onto our deck. As we were walking that morning, mom turned around and the bear came out of the field behind us. He was about 20 feet from mom and about 10 feet from me. Mom's first thought was to run, but she realized this was bad. I stared down the bear and he moved towards me and that is when I chased it! Mom was very proud of me! After I came back, mom snapped on my leash, made lots of noise and we went home. Mom felt safe once she was back in the house and then she looked out the bedroom window and there was the bear in the back yard. She phoned the Conservation Officers and as she was talking to them, the bear came up onto the deck. Well we got the bear trap back. This time it was baited with a rather large ugly fish, oatmeal, molasses and peanut butter. Once again, after being in our yard for a month and not catching anything, the trap was removed. Mom thinks it should be called a bear deterrent, BOL!
Our fruit trees did very well this year.
|Look at the size of them apples!|
The garden produced quite well and mom is still dealing with the pumpkins, squashes and a few tomatoes that are still ripening.
As always we have seen lots of wildlife (other than the bear) around our place.
I have had another visit with my grammy. I was there for her 91st birthday this August and mom and her sister brought grammy her favorite meal of Chinese food. Mom made her a double chocolate zucchini bundt cake that was well received. We were very happy to get out to see her at this time. We had tried to get out there in July, but a C. difficile outbreak had put her care home on quarantine.
As summer was winding down and the month of October came about, mom had had enough of working outside. She was secretly wishing for snow so she didn't have to work outside anymore. Then this happened.

Thanks for stopping by pups! Hopefully I can be here a bit more regularly now. Wishing everyone a pawsome fall!
