One day, like usual, we were outside playing with Bear. I told Gabby I had to put Holly down for a nap but to stay outside and I would be right back. While I was inside, Bear's owner walked over to our house wanting to talk to me but, by time I got back outside, she was gone along with the dog. I decided since we never really officially met, just a friendly wave as we're driving by, that we should walk over to their house and introduce ourselves.
As it turns out, Bear comes from a family of 6 with two other smaller dogs and a cat. The four children are grown and they all have jobs leaving no time or no one to play with Bear. So, when Robin (the owner), asked if we would like to keep him I checked with Matt right away and the adoption took place.
Nyati is an Indian name meaning Great Buffalo. The girls like calling him Bear plus it's easier for them to say. For now, we'll call him by both names but eventually we'll just call him Bear.
He loves playing Frisbee!!
