Ted Doing Better, Dexter Gone, and a Mistake - UPDATE November 21, 2021

Dexter walking onto scale - 11/13/21This nice 7-minute music video by Pooch Pal shows Sharon and Carolyn giving Ted food, medicine, and love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12q8_vV0atc Good to see Ted getting back to normal.

Last night, the link was incomplete on the Timberjay article, (now fixed) the numbers failed to carry over. Here is the correct newspaper link: http://timberjay.com/stories/ted-the-bear-goes-to-the-dentist,18383 about Ted’s surgery trip.

We are convinced Dexter has gone to hibernate. On November 14, he left at 11:30 PM in a different direction than he had been leaving, and he hasn’t been seen since. The picture of him walking onto the scale the night before (11-13-2021) shows this yearling with a good coat and weight (201 pounds) and more than prepared for winter. We’re hoping to see him early in spring and maybe learn how much weight he lost overwinter.

Thank you for all you do.
