Bear the Border Collie mix, the Dog of the Day
Name: Bear
Age: Eighteen years old
Gender: Female Breed: Border Collie mix
Home: Florida, USA
      Bear is unique in many ways beyond her age - though she came to me from the shelter at four weeks, being an orphan, she had been hand fed since her birth...the only survivor of the litter! Born on St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Bear became a sailboat live-aboard, swimming each day in the harbor and playing with coconuts on the beach. Bear loves sailing and frolicking on the beach while at anchor. She also developed a fondness for rum, especially Pina Coladas (don't worry, she just gets a little bit)!

     This continued for many years and then the move to Florida and a land-based home. Bear continues to love sailing and, of course, car rides with her head out the window, blowing wind in her face. At age 15, I started to count each day as Bonus Time but her last check up a week ago received an A+, the vet said, "She's happy and healthy, see ya next year!" Bear's favorite pasttimes these days, besides sailing and Pina Colada's, are barking at squirrels on the roof next door and walking on the bayfront, visiting other dogs on parade!
