Mu searched for Bear again today. We didn’t find him, but we found clues of where he might be, in the middle of a very large blackberry patch behind the apartments. Mu found black hairs on a blackberry thorn, and it looked like it could be from Bear. Mu did not find any evidence that Bear had been taken by a predator. A trap has been set, and people will be checking it. In the middle of the search, I let Mu off the leash in order to get untangled. He got that look in his eyes. I said, “Go ahead. Zoom.” He did some brief zoomies through the tall grass of the meadow. I tried to get a video of him, but he kept running behind me. After his zoomies, he got back to work and kept looking for Bear. Towards the end of the search, I tripped and fell. I tried to put a hand on Mu to stabilize myself and keep from falling, but Mu wisely stepped out of the way to keep the big oaf from falling on him, and I fell to the ground and smacked my elbow hard. At least Mu sat with me for a few moments while I recovered.
