Ursa was a breed rescue, bottle fed for the first few days when we got her just under four weeks old (her siblings sold off even younger). That halting start has had no long-term effect--she grew like a mushroom in the forest, and is bigger than most males of her breed. She loves to roll in the cool grass, smile and supervise our cooking. She loves going in the car to Grandma's (where she gets homemade beef jerky) or watching movies at home, with oranges and peanuts to snack on. She's a lovely girl, who wins over all those who initially fear her because of her breed and rather large frame. She's a teddy bear in reality, who makes friends wherever she goes. At seven, she's a mature girl with the heart of a puppy!
