The Polar Bear comes in peace

Just had to share this, as it is so beautiful.

Norbert Rosking's striking images of a Polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's, Hudson Bay.
The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the Polar bear wandered in..
Look and see what happens .... unbelievable.

It's hard to believe that this Polar bear only needed to hug someone!

The Polar bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs.

May you always have love to share, health to spare and friends that care.


My blog was featured at Garden-planter.com
Go and check out their site as they have some lovely planters and pots.

I hope that your week is going great and preparations for Christmas and the holidays are going well for you.

  5. Hi Carolyn,
    Congrats on being a feature blog. You so deserve this too.

    Oh I love the pics of the polar bear and the dogs. How wonderful to see the bear enjoying a hug and making some new friends. Nature and the wild life is so very sweet when you take the time to observe.

  12. Thanks for visiting Victoria and it is a heartwarming story.

    Hi Vee,

    When I saw the first picture I hoped that it would not turn out how I thought it might.


  13. Carolyn, what a beautiful post...how amazing is it...what a simple hug can do :)I am sharing this with my family...You know when I first saw the title of your post I thought it read...Polar Bear come in pink lol can you tell I didn't have my readers on :)I have been thinking about you, hope you are well sweet friend, hugs to you all and your mama especially :) Besos, Rose

  14. Oh my gosh, that was so amazing. Really something!

    Well done on the feature, will go check it out.

  15. How adorable is that?? I know Polar Bears are not as cute and cuddly as people like to think (i.e. like Panda's they are quite dangerous), but this just makes you want to run up and hug him. So nice that he just wanted to play with the dogs... oh, and I've always wanted a Husky!

  16. That is the sweetest thing ever!
    Thanks for the smile, Carolyn...
    And happy holidays!

    Hi Haute-Shopper,

    Yes, Polar and Panda Bears are so dangerous even though they have the look of a big cuddly bear.
    I have always like Husky dogs too.

    Thanks Couture Carrie and happy holidays to you.

    How wonderful to hear from you again and you have been missed here.

    Hi Monica,

    You are very welcome and I thought it was too cute, not to share.

    Hi Melissa,

    When I saw the first photo, I thought to myself, oh no... and I was so glad that it had a happy ending.

    Hi Gail,

    Thanks for your visit and I look forward to coming to see your Christmas lights.


  50. that brought a tear to my eye. aren't animals just so amazing? i guess why we have so many cats. though sometimes they just want to tears each other apart most of the time they are so tender with each other.

  51. HI Carole,

    We can learn so much from animals and yes, I love this Polar bear and the dog.
    The last photo especially sums it up so well.



Thank you so much for visiting Draffin Bears.
It always makes me happy to read your comments
and I look forward to visiting you.

Carolyn xx
