Bear was frightened by all the thunder and lightning that hit the Seal Rock area while his owners were at work in Newport. Bear dug a hole under the fence to escape the noise and took off. After Bear’s owner Connie found him missing she put out a call to various outlets for lost dogs (including NLC.com) and sure enough, a call came in that someone spotted Bear on a trail down on Seal Rock State Beach. A woman saw the dog trailing another dog on a trail and it was determined that the second dog (not on a leash) was the missing Bear. A quick phone call to Bear’s owner was all it took and now Bear is back home with Connie. Maybe she’s thinking about what she can do to prevent her sweetie from performing an encore. Maybe a very long aerial tie line with a leash on it? With Bear weighing 90 pounds, it better be strong!
But all’s well now that Bear’s back home again.
