Here he is, for those of you who are wondering what this 'bear' I twitter about looks like - he's my other new job...dog sitter of (what everyone seems to think) a bear. He does weigh in at 150lbs so its not that far off from far away to think that I've got a bear on a leash that I'm walking around Microsoft campus.
It's not too challenging of a job, he's got his moving doghouse (aka the Scion - see below - that's him in the back of the car) which he lounges in all day. He's got his water bowl, bed, snacks, lots of sun and gets regular walks. Life ain't too bad. For him.
