Prayer Request for Bear

We have been wanting to write about what was going on with Bear, but due to my mom's worry about the safety of Bear, we have not been able to.

We think it is time, and we ask all the DWB'ers and all our kitty and hammie friends to please pray for Bear.

We can't go into detail, for the sake of Bear's safety, but my ex-step-daddy has stooped to whole new low. We ask that you help us pray that Bear will be surrendered to my mom.

Here are the last pictures mom has of spending time with Bear on Sunday 6/7.

Mom took him to play with some new doggie friends, and mom had never seen him so happy.

Bear was running and frolicking for hours.

Bear could not believe his good fortune to meet these new pals.

Mom then took him to Petsmart and let him pick out some new toys and treats, and then took him for a walk in our neighborhood. He was so pooped out after the wonderful day he had, but oh so happy.

Then mom had to take him back to my ex-step daddy.
Bear said: "No, mom, please don't leave me here. Pleeease take me with you!"
But mom thought she did the right thing in order to not enrage my ex-step-daddy more, so she left Bear there. This was the last time mom saw Bear.

Bear was supposed to be surrendered to mom after this. This did not happen, and my ex-step-daddy relocated Bear.

Bear was gone. Mom searched and searched for Bear on all the rescue sites, and petfinder.com.

Finally she learned where he was on 6/21. To hurt Bear, to hurt my mom is just despicable.
We can not explain details now, but we ask that everyone please pray for Bear, and his safe return to my mom.

Thank you, my friends.....

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

If you are Bear's daddy and are reading this, please know that Bear has alot of friends who so dearly love and miss him. He is a good boy and seemed so happy playing with those other doggies. We pray for Bear because we are deeply heartbroken because we miss him. We also pray that there is goodness in your heart and you will give us our friend back. Bear has done nothing wrong, he is just a baby and doesn't know why things are the way they are.
Please, I beg you with all my hearts, please let us have Bear back.
Deetzy
I am not afraid to cry and my eyes leak today and for every day he is gone.

the 4 Bs said...

oh no, we are so worried about Bear now. he is a good doggy and innocent. he doesn't understand about human peoples' disagreements. please be safe, Bear, we want you to come home to your mommy who loves you and will take care of you. we are sending all of our paw power, power of the Bs, and poodle power to keep Bear safe and to bring Bear home to his mom. we are very sad that humans have to hurt innocent pups in order to inflict pain on other humans. very sad. very worried.

Daisy said...

I am saddened to learn about Bear. I am sending my very best purrs that he will be safely returned to your mom, and right away. Bear deserves to be happy and well-cared-for regardless of whatever is going on. I hope that your mom is able to get him back from wherever he is.

Helena said...

This is TERRIBLE!
How sick!
He obviously cares nothing for Bear nor for his family.
I truly truly hope you get him back, and that you then whip this fella's behind with any law you can find that will do it.
My God, what a cruel, dispicable thing to do. I just don't know how some people can live with themselves.

Sending hugs and all my hopes.

The OP Pack said...

How despicable can one person be??? We are crossing our paws and sending sibe vibes for the safe return to you of Bear.

Woos, the OP Pack

Dannan and The Girl said...

Oh no! Bear, JB, Chester, and Mom, we are so sad to hear that this has happened. We are howling to heaven for Bear to be returned safely and soon. I am sending all my brown dog vibes out to Bear to keep him strong until he gets to come home, and to you all too. We will pray for all of you.

As so many have commented, Bear is an innocent who doesn't deserve to be caught up in the middle of something he doesn't even understand. It is not fair to punish him this way!

Brown dog and Girlie sadness,
Dannan and The Girl

Our mom was just thinking about Bear the other day...wondering how he was doing...and now this...we are so sad...but we are purraying so very very hard that things will work out and Bear will find his way back to all of you!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Mom read dis to our daddy and he sed dat was a "sick" thing to do. Our little fuzzy babies are not pawns to be used to punish and to be hurt in da process. Please send Bear home to his mom.

Inky and Molly said...

What is wrong with people?? A doggie would never do that, that is just despicable. Our mum asks to please engage the relevant law enforcement agency (whatever that means) and wishes for bear and his mum's safety. Our paws are crossed...

Dewey Dewster said...

JB..

Casper and pals said...

Oh my God that is just horrible!

We will be praying and praying that you get Bear back.

VampyVictor said...

I thinks your ex dadda needs to be scheduled! AND if what we are reading is correct, though we hope very much not, be put on the list of possible offenders.
Anyone that can hurt and animal for ANY REASON has something wrong in their head and it is well documented that they only START with animals...
If this man has hurt Bear he needs to be locked up and medicated.
We are puurrring with alll our might, what a crazy world we just do not understand what can go through a persons mind, wy he would want to hurt you if he still cares about you which he does otherwise he would not be so stupid, but even worse the sickness that he would actually consider hurting a sweet innocent animal just to get to you.. that's seriously F'd up...
many many many many puuurs to you, to Bear (we loves you) and to your ex-dadda who we hope will have a revelation about what he is doing :))

The Creek Cats said...

This is so sad. Please know that all of us are purring and purraying for Bear's safe return!

Oh noes!!!!! That is really too much!!

Parker said...

Using an animal as a pawn is pretty low. It sounds like he needs therapy and if that doesn't work, he needs a can of pissed off kitty claws opened and applied to his face. Oops, sorry, I didn't mean to say that out loud.
All of us are praying for Bear's safety - you and Bear in our thoughts and our prayers

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

JB, we are sending our strongest purrs and purrayers for Bear, and we hope that he will soon be home safe and sound with you, your Mom and Chester. Our Momma used some of the words on the bad word list about that ....... oops, we almost used some too. He is just twisted and as Parker said, sounds like he needs therapy. We love you, and you will be constantly in our thoughts.

Kitties @ Our family cat-a-blog... said...

If your mom has legal custody of Bear and has the papers to prove it all she has to do is go to the police and ask that they go with her to get him. If Bear is purebred, and it appears that he is, if your momma's name is on his registration, that is additional proof that Bear belongs to her. I'd go to the police and file a report. I would overturn every rock in town to get that dog back.

Until Bear is safely returned to your mommy and your loving home, we are only going to think positive thoughts.

We will pray to St. Francis to watch over him and to St. Anthoney (Patron Saint of Lost Things - we think this count) to bring him home right away.

After he is home we will let Bendrix say what he is thinking.

Until then, we are sending purrs and prayers to Bear, you kitties and comforting thoughts to your mommy.

To the little man who did this: you reap what you sow! Grow up! Don't use a helpless pet to get back at a person. I can't believe you are allowed to fly a plane full of human beings when clearly you are a monster!
Sorry Deb, but, I am so angry!
Sending you lots of gentle hugs and loving thoughts,
