Every time I see the big black furry mass, that is my neighbor’s Newfoundland dog, in our yard, my first thought is, “It’s a bear!” Then I notice the white patch on its chest and realize it is just Scout from next door.
Whenever Kona sees Scout through the window, it might as well be a bear, because Kona goes into a loud barking fit that can’t be calmed. Poor Scout hears Kona’s conniption from inside our house and wanders away just like a bear would do.
Since the bears are still all hibernating, curled up in their dens, it will be a couple of months before we start seeing any of them.
