Getting Along

Posted by Rick | October 16th, 2007 | Filed under Positive Change



We received an email recently that gave very little information about these photos, save for the fact that the photographer who took the shots thought he was going to lose his huskies when this polar bear materialized on the Manitoban tundra. Amazingly, the bear returned every night to play with the dogs. Makes you think that if these two creatures — whose DNA should be telling them to fight or flee — can get along, anybody can… right?

    Thank you for sharing amazing pictures…I guess we can never assume what nature does. (that’s the part of the beauty, right?)

    Captivating and thought-provoking images for sure.

    The photos first gained prominence through a talk by Stuart Brown on the NPR program Speaking of Faith. It is viewable here

    Thank for shedding some light on where the shots came from. I really enjoyed hearing the story that went along with the pics and am a firm believer in the power of play.

    these shots make me smile, but i tend to think it’s a mother who lost her cubs and looking for someone to nurture…kinda wish it was me, but probably happy i didn’t get that bear hug.

    It’s a good thing that bear likes the dog… because that dog wouldn’t have a chance, being chained and all.
