I finally saw one!!

This is totally unrelated to all my dogs posts on here, but I just had to share. For the past 4 years, I've always missed seeing any of the Black Bears in the area. My sister had seen one a couple years back, Spencer saw one last year, then both of the kids saw one last week. Well, I finally saw my first today, thanks to Spencer! He had the dogs outside and ran them all inside in order to tell me about the bear.

"He" was down in the field between our house and the road. If anyone remembers the mustard field pictures from last year, that is where.

You'll notice the bear start hoofing it towards the end, because Zeo started barking at her squirrel tree. I'm guessing that 'he' thought she was talking to "him". However none of the dogs had actually noticed him since he was downwind from us.

There is also a split from when I went from shooting the video out my window, then ran out to the side yard once 'he' started to get out of my line of site.

I am still sooo, excited!

{and no, I didn't check under "his" tail to see if it was a boy or girl. I'm just calling it a "him" for ease of reference.
