the end seemed very near for Hudson, a Canadian Eskimo dog tethered near the shore of Hudson Bay, east of Churchill, Manitoba. Ah, £1000 polar bear was lumbering toward the dog and about 40 others the prized possessions of Brian Loudoun, Ah, hunter and trapper. It was mid November, I said, not yet formed on the bay, and the open water prevented bears from hunting their favorite prey seals. So this bear had been virtually fasting for four months. Surely a dog was destined to become a meal. The bear closed in did Hudson Howlin Terror and try to flee. On the contrary, he wagged his tail, grinned and actually bowed to the bare, as if an invitation. The bear responded with enthusiastic body language and nonaggressive facial signs. These two normally antagonistic species were speaking the same language. Let's play. The ramp was on for several minutes. Dog and bear wrestled and cavorted once the bear completely wrapped himself around the dog like a friendly white cloud, bear and dog, and then embraced as if in sheer abandon, overheated by a smaller playmate shenanigans, the bear lay down and called for a time out every morning for more than a week, the bear returned to play with one of the dogs. Finally, the ice formed and he set off for his winter habitat.
