It has been cold outside, and although Bear finds the interior of our house more than boring, that is where we have been doing the majority of our visiting during this nip off your nose weather.
It is very hard to get this gorgeous animal to sit still long enough outdoors to get a set of nice snapshots of him. Especially close-ups, because if you are at his level outdoors, that means it is serious playtime. You are going to get licked and pawed and maybe even turned over if you allow it.
He is 120 pounds big, and in my tiny house, Bear has learned that he has to be calm. He is a 2 year old, and calm equals dull or an opportunity for a nap. For me, it means I can sit next to him, lay my head on his chest, pet him calmly, or grab the camera and play around.
The next picture is a typical "I hope you realize I'm just barely 'putting up with you'" look from my dog. This is my favorite part of this dog's attitude. Yes, he gets rambunctious, and out of control playful, but he is truly the lie-at-your-feet type of dog, that will only move if you do. He doesn't play fetch, he completely understands and listens when you say no, and he is just an all around wonderful dog to have around.
