Bear (aka B.Bear short for Baby Bear) became my traveling companion 30+ years ago. When my husband couldn't accompany me on a trip, he gave me this adorable German Steiff Bear to keep me company. Bear has been on every trip I have taken since 1983. He was even permitted to go into surgery with me. My husband came up with the name for this blog when I was traveling to China with Bear and three girl friends. He knew the trip would be nothing if not a circus.

Darby and the Peanut Butter Jar
Let me introduce you to this cute little one. We have had the pleasure of sharing our home with this cute little Dachshund for about 5 years. We got him from the Ohio Dachshund Rescue. This little dog has been such a joy for us. He is one of the naughtiest/cutest little dogs I've ever had. He is part Dachshund, part Jack Russel. In his short life he has been paralyzed in his hind quarters and recovered and has had knee surgery. He has such a love for life. The people that 'turned' him in to the rescue said that he had been on the run with a border collie for about 6 weeks before they could catch them. They also think that he was from a puppy mill and a pet shop in a mall was broken into and these guys were turned loose. We had already rescued another Dachshund and we wanted another buddy.
I happen to like peanut butter and I do eat it with a spoon...forget that spread it on the bread stuff. Let's just go for it! Well, I left the jar sitting on the end table while I went to get something in the kitchen. When I returned, this is what I saw. He had moved the jar to the couch for a more convenient place to enjoy the pnbutter. I haven't found the spoon yet.
