Aww poor bear was dude I am trying to nap here… jeez alright I will go already.

They’re not upset! those dogs have simply found the largest stuffed animal in the world, and really, really, realyreallyreally want to play!

I can just see them imagining the mountain of stuffing they can pull out of that bear…


#4

Feists!


#5

They just couldn’t bear to share their yard with someone else


#6

Obviously it was that other bigger dog that was intruding on their territory.

That little terrier is brave to go after that big. . . whatever breed it was.


#7

If that bear was a grizzly or polar bear, those dogs would be snacks.


#8

If you’ve ever seen a chihuahua at the dog park, you’ll realize that dogs do not understand the concept of relative size.


#9

Oh great, now The Baja Men are going to try and recapture the spotlight with Who Let The Bears In?


#10

Well, that sure was one big chihuahua.


#11

These puppers get it. 13/10!


#12

I wouldn’t worry, dogs bark at anything.


#13

Whatever it was they were barking at, that bear wasn’t having any of it either.


#14

The question is, why was that big one NOT barking at whatever it was?


#15

Pic-a-nic basket defense successful!

Commence plaint for cheese and sandwich meat thus defended…


#16

Because it would be pretty weird for them to be meowing.


#17

Maybe; polar bears, being irish, are highly intelligent and thus very curious.
I have seen many videos of polar bears playing carefully with huskies.


#18

I beg your pardon?

Cool, it’s the dog version of:

:+1:

[Edit: Looks like bears can be startled away by the unexpected - and good thing too!]

Yeah, apparently they are descended from wandering irish brown bears, from ages ago.

So perhaps they’re naturalized canadians of irish descent?
