He is sitting on the front garden wall begging!
Just read the words on his placard...
Bearinging in mind that he is bigger than me, with a fierce Polar Bear attitude, I usually hesitate to reprimand him, however I feel his latest action is bringing the Hug into disrepute as we are very well feed.
I suspect he will claim it is because Mother would not let him paw out the tomato pasta saucepan after Joey's cook in.
But that was so, he would not stain his fur bright red!
So, his only acceptable defence, will be that he is doing a little last minute 'fattening up' before he goes into hibernation.
In that case, I will very happily turn a 'blind eye', as sleep deprivation could account for his bad humour towards everyone except 'wheelie' Bailey, his best buddy!
I understand that my friend Buttons white bears hibernate each year, awaking after Thanksgiving but I am hoping Skipper might slumber for longer, much longer!
