Chloe came by with her two male cubs that were showing brotherly love while we continue to debate names for them.
Then I tried hard to make the light-faced mother nursing her cubs be Lily, but she is too small and cannot be 14-year-old Lily. It’s 5-year-old Lucy, daughter of Samantha, granddaughter of Braveheart, great granddaughter of Blackheart, and great great granddaughter of Shadow. The sun actually is highlighting the very small clump of white hairs on her chest that make her absolutely Lucy. I’m glad to see sweet Lucy, but I’m still looking hard for Lily.
Lucy and Chloe are both good bears that I look forward to seeing all summer.
Thank you for all you do.
