Hi HFN;<quoted text>
Your post reminded me of something.
Sense you like critters, bears and such.
When my Dad was a kid his cousins had a pet bear that would follower them around. They would swing out on a rope over the water and jump into it. The bear would come and jump right in there with them. Just thought you might like that.
lol they do like the water especially if they think they will find fish.I live high in the mountians and I never know what will wonder in here.One cannot sleep with a window open here at night cause they might end up with company crawling thru the window.Been afew that have been woke up to bear company inside the house.Never had a bear for a pet but have had other wild ones for pets over the years.I chased afew of them away from my house at night.They can get into mischeif and tare up things quick.I always watching the bears,deer,elk,racoons,squirre ls,ect just what ever wonders in.
Of course it is my fault they come as put out food and salt lick and have water tanks of water for them to use too.I have fruit trees the bears get into when the fruit falls or produces.They love thoses pears.lol.I have a squirrel on the place who is a peeping tom I call him buddy he get up on my window unit air conditioner and looks inside the window at me.lol.Yep sure do love those tame and wild critters.Thanks for the story bet that bear brought some good times.
