In Memoriam: Bear

By Megan & Garrett, published on April 7th, 2016
"In lieu of flowers and milkbones, Bear would like you to adopt a senior pet from your local shelter."

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the passing of our beloved Bear, Bearinga, Bear Soup, Bearcephus…. after Degenerative Myelopathy and a necrotic mass became too difficult for his day to day.

He was born in July of 2000 and lived to a ripe age of 15.5, the last 3+ years of which we got to be his people. He enjoyed car rides with the windows down, romping through the woods, face plowing in the snow, the occasional game of frisbee and curling up on blankets at home. More than anything he liked treats – Peanut Butter, Beggin’ Poppers and mom’s molasses crinkle cookies.

Bear is survived by his mom and dad, Megan and Garrett, his feline sisters ‘the sandbox people’ Abbey and Tygrr, his new little sister Evelyn, his girlfriend Zoe from his last stay at the Pets Hotel and his imaginary friends Moose and Gonzalez from his job as delivery car cleanup at Little Caesars.

Bear is ever grateful to Grandma & Grandpa Albro for his endless supply of bandana bling and Grandpa & Grandma Emery for sneaking him deer jerky(and other meaty treats) and letting him relax at an amazing vacation place on the lake.

Some of Bear’s fondest memories include a road trip to South Carolina with his mom, ear rubs from his dad, falling butt first into the tide on Lake Michigan and sunning himself with a Chewbone in the backyard.

In lieu of flowers and milkbones, Bear would like you to adopt a senior pet from your local shelter.

He had the purest, sweetest soul and holds an irreplaceable place in our hearts. We will see you at the rainbow bridge, buddy. Look over us in our first night in the house without you. Love You.
