Our Big Red Bear
Oso came to live with us about 12 years ago. We were really just supposed to foster him, but our 1st Colorado foster girl whom we had adopted 6 months earlier told us he was a keeper, so we adopted him too. The 2 of them loved to play and acted like puppies, even as they became senior citizens. When we moved up into the mountains, Oso became more protective and often alerted us to the bears and mountain lions before chasing them away from our home. Oso went to the Rainbow Bridge very suddenly a few days ago. Shelby, another beautiful rescue from Dobe Rescue Co continues to cry and look for him, adding to our already substantial grief. He was the most beautiful, gentle, loving red boy we’ve ever been privileged to know & we look forward to seeing him again at the Rainbow Bridge.
