Bear With Me - Athena With The Bear Hair
Ever seen a bear in London? A real one?
Meet Athena, the sweetest bear cub in town.
Athena is a Bear Coat Shar Pei, and she is so insanely adorable that I had to invite her for photos. On the day of our shoot I was so happy and excited like in my childhood when waiting for Santa. And it's been a few days now but I just can't stop smiling since.
Bear Coats are extremely cute and fluffy, and even more rare. Their super soft coat is a result of a recessive gene in both parents, therefore it's mostly unpredictable whether there will be bear coat puppies in the litter.
During our photo shoot she has been an amazingly good dog! She is still a puppy but she is patient and curious and just hilarious (see the flower-fun photos).
Athena lives in London and loves adventures so we decided to discover some new places together. Check out her Instagram to see her chasing pigeons and hanging out with her friends.
Can the corgis come out to play, please?
Early dog catches the best photo spot.
Ok, seriously, where is everyone?
Best if I get on this high vantage point to scout the land.
And guard it like a lion.
Is it doughnuts I'm smelling?
Look at all these yellow trumpets!
I think I can pretend I'm one of them.
It's time to move on to serious business.
Swinging, for example. Can you see how serious I am?
I'm not really napping. Just showing off my flowery headband.
I'm sure around here I can get some more of them. I love shopping!
Mmm... and gentle mornings in Soho. (I woke up like this.)
Are we nearly there yet?
The trouble with super heroes is what they do between phone booths, they say.
My super power is giving bear kisses.
So much fun!
Ah this smells delicious.
(See you next time!)
