“It was a bear!”
Mrs. Curmudgeon was telling me the story of a bear that appeared in our backyard. The Cliffs Notes version is that the dog needed to go out to pee and when Mrs. Curmudgeon took the dog out (on a leash) she got a little closer to a bear than she’d have liked.
It sounds like the dog knew the bear was there but Mrs. Curmudgeon didn’t. It also sounds like the dog was ready to throw down. Mrs. Curmudgeon had to hold tight to the leash and dig in her heels lest she wind up dragged into a melee that surely would have been epic. Of course bears are not idiots. This one stood up, assessed the situation, and hauled ass for the forest.
In my next post I’m going to tell you what really happened.
