Adam’s Epic Adventure – Man’s best friend not so friendly

Okay, so after that close call last week where I nearly got abducted by a human being, I’m glad to tell you that I’m back out in the wilderness, free to explore and not having to play dead all the time around people. It’s just the way I like it!

You might be wondering how I got here… Well it was a bit of a paddle to be fair, but after a few hours floating on this boat, I arrived safe and sound, if a little bit damp.

I decided to climb a tree since I am a bear after all. My friend Grizzly who has a bit of a bad temper once told me that the best way to climb a tree is by putting one paw in front of the other. So without further adieu, I climbed and climbed and climbed.

I got so high up that my legs started to tremble with fear. I realised I wasn’t as strong as my friend Grizzly. I wasn’t used to this type of climbing and so with the story of Humpty Dumpty firmly imprinted in my mind, I decided to head back down cautiously.

After a long walk on the beach, I decided to relax in the soft sand. Just as I was beginning to admire the view I heard footsteps coming from behind me. They got increasingly louder and this time, it didn’t sound like a concerned passer-by. This was something far more deadly approaching…

All of a sudden… Boom! I had been savaged by a wild dog! He picked me up and shook me around. The humans stood around, laughing and pointing. I couldn’t work out what was funny. I was covered in gross dog slime and I struggled to wriggle out of the dog’s mouth desperately.

Eventually the dog put me down and howled with pride. It was a lucky escape and I got away with nothing more than smelling of dog. It was time for a dip in the ocean to freshen up and find some shelter for the night.

They say that sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination… So far I’ve learned to stay clear from beaches with dogs!
