Study buddy Bear Distance learning Studying Pets Dogs Fitting Studies in
Naughty Bear Some of you who read this blog will know that I have a study buddy called Bear. Bear is a gentle wally of 43kg Labrador who resembles a small white horse. Bear is currently looking at me through the window wondering why he isn't allowed on his bed in front of the fire on ironically, the coldest day of the year...This is why...

Bear is very, very, very loved by my children and me. He also has a crazy 'step mum' who he goes to a few times a week and plays with her dog, a retriever called Pippi. His step mum is one of my best friends who I call ‘crazy’ with love, as she loves her dogs to the point where she cooks them steaks, stir fry's, sausages etc. for lunch. She is an amazing chef and Bear will often eat better than me.

So Bear was off to play for the morning at Pippi’s house while both I and his step mum were out. A few hours later Bear’s step mum rings me telling me that animal management has Bear at her house and for me to come down . We were both puzzled as the property is 'dog proof'. So I got down there and was very thankful that animal management had rounded Bear up and waited for me to get there instead of impounding him. When I arrived I put Bear in the back of the car - thanked the bloke for his efforts and for not taking him off to doggie jail -and got back in the car.

Earlier before the excitement of picking up Bear, I bought myself a pull apart cheese and bacon bread loaf for lunch and had thrown it in the back of the car in my rush to get to Bear. I couldn't believe that by the time I thanked the animal management bloke and got back into the car....yip Bear had nailed it. The whole loaf GONE in probably under 15seconds.

I was so cross that it was lucky that the animal management bloke had already left otherwise Bear would have been going with him to doggie jail for some timeout, and to learn about life on the 'other side'. I’m not sure that this would have computed but not only had he taken himself for a walk, he ate my lunch and I was extremely cross.

My friend is selling her house, and it turns out that a gate had been opened and not shut on the property by people looking through it, which is how Bear managed to get out on his adventure. I am very thankful that he wasn't hurt and he didn't hurt anyone.

I ended up with jam toast for lunch.

So still not happy, but it is lonely not having anyone to read the study material to.

Do you think I should let him in?
