The "Awww" Factor - I Love Bears

Today, a brief detour into the "feel-good." Hey, we need a break from the serious now and then!

Just look at this photo of a baby polar bear being gently groomed by a human caregiver. Yes, I know it will one day grow into a ferocious man-eater, but for now, how adorable. (And no, it's not the German celebrity bear, Knut)

Too bad they can't stay like that forever!

I love bears.

aaaaawwwww. Let him get bigger and there'll be PLENTY of meat on him.

I wonder if he's looking for the guy who shot his "paw".

The interesting thing is, I wonder if he'll go off on his handlers or if he'll retain affection for them.

You never know with polar bears. They're the most ferocious, followed by grizzlies as a close second.

I wonder if they taste like almond bark...and grizzlies..well, that's obvious. They would naturally taste just like choc--no, probably like chicken just lie everything else; except polar bears. I've heard they taste like almond bark.

I don't know what my problem is. I think I'm A.D.D.

The company name where I work is Apex Design and Drafting. I would have figured out what that abbreviated sooner, but I got distracted.

When he grows up it will be AWWWWWWWWWWWWRRRRR!

I Don't know if we can claw our way out of this one.

I guess this post really shows the bear essentials.

Look how cute he is. To think when he grows up, he'll be the polar opposite.

Thanks for this post, it was really something we could sink our teeth into.

I hope he doesn't get an icy reception.

His Dad might even give him the seal of approval.

Okay okay. I'll stop now.

You're going to get bitten yet.

Well, this bear might gum you to death, but the sentiment is the same.

He loves you, too. With tartar sauce.

I thought tartar sauce only went with fish. Polar bears do like to swim in ice water, but I think they'd be more partial to A-1 if they were out to eat a human.

Unless humans taste like chicken.
