The Lowdown on Bear

Hi everyone, it's Tucker-Doodle.

I thought I'd give an update on my foster-bro Bear. He's been here about a month now and he's changed bunches. The biggest thing is that he's not so much a weenie now, he's actually shoving Dot back when she pushes him out of the way. Mom's happy cause his fur doesn't feel like a brillo-pad so much anymore, he's starting to get kinda soft and silky looking, but in a macho sorta way. He still has weird fur patches though. I'm happy to say that now that his hair is getting better it REALLY makes the Brat Pack tattoo on his face stand out.

He's a SERIOUS attention hog and I just don't know how I feel about that. I mean, I'm into sharing to a point but I just don't know. The only funny thing about it is that he really irritates Dot when he steals her thunder. He likes hanging around me though, I think maybe I'm his idol. Not so hard to believe since I'm the coolest dog here.

There's a couple odd things about him that remind me of Dakota, a LOT. I think the people have noticed it too. He'll spend lots and lots of time cleaning out my ears. The only other dog that ever cleaned our ears was Dakota. I like it. Plus he's starting to sleep in Dakota's spot in the closet a lot. I think that's strange, I never understood why Dakota liked that. Those shoes are kinda smelly.

Here's a pic of us, Mom says not to look at her, just focus on the handsome dogs. Bear's melon is huge, I think he could swallow both of our heads. Weirdo.
I'm trying to convince Mom that he should live here forever. I think he's my Soul-Brother. Maybe I need to start a campaign.
Love - Tucker

Dear Tucker Doodle,
I VOTE YES, YES, YES...for Bear to be your forever brother!!! He looks so happy and seems to really love you, maybe he's YOUR special angel, sent to you by Dakota...maybe that is why he does so many special things that remind you of his love!

Hooray!!! A campaign for Bear permanency! I'll join! Can we make campaign signs? How about:
"Adopt a Bear"
"Bear: The Next Brat"
"Can't Bear to be Without Him"

Keep us posted on how it's going!

I think he's doing a great job working his way into her heart all by himself!!

Hey Tucker, I think Aunt Jan is right!! Dakota must have sent Bear to keep you all company. In a short period of one month, I think he has become a part of the pack with or without you knowing. I wanna put my paw on the campaign for Bear to be your Forever Brother!! Let me know where to sign erm..paw i mean.
PS : I like the way your Mom cuddles the both of you!!

Hey start a petition I will give you my paw. Bear so needs to live there with you all forever. Hey I clean out Flash's ears all the time. He doesn't like it but I hold him down. haha

Ruby Bleu said...

Get me that petition to sign! Bear needs to stay with the pack! He seems so happy....that picture is great!!!! You all look so happy.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Aw Tucker! That tugs at my heartstrings. I hope you get to keep your friend! (If not, maybe he could live with us! I'm not joking, either. My ma ape would drive to get him!). But I think you should get him. Everybody needs a friend. And a friend who cleans your ears is hard to find.

Aw, what a happy family pictures. I vote yes, too! I think Dakota sent him to you.

Ferndoggle said...

What an awesome picture! We vote yes, yes, yes!! We think Big Bear should stay! It's fate. We think your Mom is pretty fond of him too.

Sherman, Penny & Lola

My mom thinks the same. Dakota sent him to be part of the family. And you are a great family with people who love you so much!
I support your campaign!!
Besos y abrazos

If you need any help with your campaign, let me know! We need to get that Foster Brother status changed to Fulltime Brother. You two look very comfy on your Mom's lap.

Dakota said...

I vote for Brother Bear!


Roxie, Sammy, Andy and Shermie said...

We vote yes ... and that's THREE votes! You probably won't get too many votes against the idea because we are all suckers for happy endings.
