Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear

July 23, 2020

‚ÄčI adopted Grizzly Bear (formerly Grizzly) in 2016. He was nervous and skittish when he moved in. He was 8 years old and had been in the shelter for months and had an adoption fall through.

He just celebrated his 12th birthday and Grizzly Bear is now the most affectionate head-butter around. He walks around like a big feather duster lion, showcasing his glorious mane, bib, and pantaloons. He takes his lead from his outgoing adopted brother Tiggy and is an indispensable member of the family. His favourite toy is a plastic stick, which he carries around, talks to, and treasures.

I painted this furry monster; you can see Grizzly Bear’s and other animal portraits at @thelibrarium!
