Treed bear alarm clock
My dogs Travis and Mika woke me at 6 with their barking. They aren’t barkers.
I waited for the deer or whatever to run away and their barking to stop. It got more intense.
The last time Travis barked like that was when he treed a bear. I got up to check and sure enough there was Travis at the bottom of the hill barking up at a medium-sized black bear:
Travis was one proud doggie and I praised his bear-treeing skill as I led him away back to the cabin.
Where we went back to sleep.
Tonight I work on Chapter 7 of Operation American Freedom – President Cheney’s Inauguration.
