Fuzzy, wasn't he?

Hi all! Sierra-dog here!

In my last installment we were all left wondering, "What did Sierra see on her trip in the area around Globe, AZ?  We can barely stand it!  What was it Sierra?"
It was so fun to paw through your guesses, they were great! 
Well- it was a  bear!  A cub!

The peeps are making me post all of the pictures (even the fuzzy ones, sorry) of this bear because it was really something special that they saw it.

Here is what happened according to the peeps who were sitting in the cab of the truck:
 LL: *Gasp!* What is that running across the road? A bear!
BM: It's a cub! He just came from over that hill.
LL and BM in unison: Where is the Momma bear? *Frantically looking around to see if they could see her, to no avail.*
BM: Where are the dogs?
LL: They are in the back- they are fine. What are they doing?  They don't even seem to notice.  Thank goodness!

The cub noticed the truck and quickly moved to a tree and started to partially climb up, looking startled.

Not wanting to frighten the poor baby any more they kept the truck moving, snapped a few more pictures and left.

Here is what happened according to the dogs who were sitting in the back of the truck: (ie Dexie and me):
Dexie:  *Yawn!* I am so tired!
Me:  I know!  All that swimming really wears me out.
Dexie:  Do you want some more lemonaid?
Me:  No thanks, but will you pass the sunscreen?  I think it missed a spot."
Dexie: Do you think I look fat?
Me: NO!  In fact your coat looks great, especially after that algae bath.
Dexie: I still think you pushed me!
Me: I did not!  Hey, what are the peeps doing?  I think we slowed down.
Dexie: Oh, they are taking pictures again. Those crazy peeps are always taking a picture of something.
Me: Thank goodness it not of us this time...
Dexie: Yeah, for once!  Hum... I'm going back to sleep.
Me: Me too.  *snor*

Yep, we kinda missed it.


  1. We have lots of black bears that live around here, but the most unusual was the one that ran into our Jeep. Yep - he hit us. Our hu-dad saw him and stopped to avoid hitting him. But the bear just ran into the side of our Jeep, glared at us, and ran on. How rude.

  2. How khool!

    Thanks fur pawmitting LL and BM to share them with us!

  3. I'm glad he didn't try to come toward the truck. I would have had to stop and take pictures - that's how dumb I am sometimes!

  4. You have a knack for telling a story that brings a smile. Thanks for sharing!

  5. That was a great story !! It is quite clear that you are not hunting dogs. You missed the BEAR completely. Next time the BM and LL are taking pictures of something and you are not it you better take notice. Have a great day !!
    Love ya much.

  6. Wowza!! Great pix of the baby bear. Loved your commentary Sierra and Dexie :) Cubs like lemonade ya know...:) Dexie, we still can't believe you and your algae bath! Glad you made it out of that green slithery stuff.

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  7. Wow! Those are some cool pictures. :)


  8. Woof! Woof! WOWy ... OMD! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. That was a cute little bear! I'm glad you didn't have a run-in with the mama, though!

  10. I (lick) sorry love your blog..I'm hooked..I want more!! Sopie the Labradoodle from eastern Canada!

  11. Well, I’m sure the dogs didn’t feel the need to guard the back of a moving truck from wildlife! Great to have pictures!

  12. A bear! Gosh, he is the cutest little thing! I hope mama was close by and he wasn't lost! (Ok, I worry about everything, lol.) You two girls do the funnest things!
