In a recent bear attack, an eye, a nose, and part of a mouth were lost in the battle.
The poor old bear didn’t stand a chance.
Against the nine-month-old, ready-for-action, Labradoodle….who in her defense, was only doing her thing.
Sadly, we feared it might be the end of the 71-year old bear, Richard’s first childhood friend.
But Guardian Angels do exist. Enter, Ruth Hasman, Teddy Bear Doctor Extraordinaire. When contacted she responded promptly with an affirmative, ‘can do’ attitude.
We air-ambulanced Bear immediately (aka Canada Post). Once received, Ruth contacted us again to outline procedure options. She also offered to give bear a spa treatment (she noticed that he had not had a bath in quite a while). At every step of the way, Ruth was collaborative, professional and showed a great sense of humour.
Thank you to ‘Dr. Ruth’ for all of her skill and expertise in giving this ‘bear attack’ a happy ending!
P.S. To avoid any future mishaps, Bear has been given a new location in our home….on a very high shelf.
