Bear the Malamute
Bruce Cunningham sent this photo of our old malamute, Bear, taken in 1981. He was a good dog. A bit aggressive, but very sweet with Linda and me. The kids had a more difficult time.
We got him from Manus (now Daniel) and Jill Pinkwater in North Carolina. His parents were Juno and Arnold. Arnold was a beautiful and quirky animal. Once we were taking care of him and he played the 'poor abused malamute' ploy by hiding under the kitchen table and complaining that we were beating the living shit out of him. I grabbed him and took him outside and had a firm discussion about appropriate malamute behavior.
Let me see if I can find a picture of these dogs.
