Bear vs. Erwin > the new Arch Nemesis

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Paws and Pooches of the internet,
and all of our loyal Bear’s P4ws readers,

Meet Erwin. 
MY trees! MINE!

Erwin is a lovely and adorable Ontario Red Squirrel who lives in the trees beside our home.  He is happiest when gathering nuts and branches and enjoys warm sunny days and adores feeling the wind rush through his fur when jumping from branch to branch.

Erwin and Bear have never really met.  For the most part, Bear is happy to mind his own business when walking under trees, but lately we’ve hit a bit of a.....stalemate. 
You see, Erwin does not like Bear.  In fact, he spends most of our walks following us through the tree line and will, whenever it suites his fancy, throw twigs down at us as we walk.

Bear is, of course, deeply offended by this and would very much like the opportunity to speak with Erwin, nose-to-nose...alas, that will probably never happen, as Erwin does most of his chattering from as high as he can get. 

Poor Bear

(Although our morning walks are much more interesting now.  I don’t even need to use the magic “W” word anymore.  All I have to say to get Bear’s excitement going is “Let’s go see Erwin” and the tail starts to wag furiously.  It’s adorable!)

Keep your tails wagging

  1. Erwin sounds like a rascal! I don't think Stella would know what to think if she came nose-to-nose with a squirrel...we only have the dull grey ones around here though so she they largely go un-noticed to her. Keep your tail wagging Bear!:)

  2. Squirrels are evil and must be destroyed. Erwin sounds like a butthead. Bear is freakin' awesome. So is his bunny. Bunnies Rule. Squirrels Drool...
