Bear



UPDATE: Bear went to the Rainbow Bridge at 12:15am Central Time. She had come home from the vet and was sleeping in MaryLynn's arms when she passed. Please go over and offer the family what comfort you can. I am very sad.

Bear is a small dog who loves cats. She is 17 years old and she has just been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. This is very sad news and please keep Bear and her family (MaryLynn, KC and Missy Blue Eyes) in your thoughts and prayers. Bear decided that she liked KC very much the first time she met her and the feeling was mutual. Bear loves homemade chicken soup. When KC first arrived, she was so small that she could actually walk under Bear. One day while Bear was lapping up her chicken soup, KC walked under her and was fishing out pieces of chicken while standing between Bear's front legs. Bear didn't mind a bit.

                                          Bear is a woofie who thinks like a cat.
                                          She adopted KC and told Missy, "That's that!"
                                                 She shares her food
                                                 And is never rude.
                                          KC loves Bear like her own mother cat.

Bear is such a wonderful girl! She really loves her KC. This was my favorite limerick.

This is my favorite limerick now, too. So sweet and a real surprise! I love the part about the chicken soup, I had forgotten that.

And now KC is larger than Bear. She is thinner, but it is fun to remember her being so tiny she could stand between Bear's front paws and steal soup.

Love this woofie. Bear is so cute and seeing the pictures of her and KC on Missy's site are fun. It is so sad that Bear is so sick. Prayers are going up for her and her family. Love you Bear.
