Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network posted this on Facebook today. Not sure if you have to be a member to view it.

"Neighbours were out in the woods – 5 miles in the brush and saw a black bear and a ‘cub’ – they took pictures and when they got home – they zoomed the pictures and realized the cub was NOT a cub – BUT was a dog! They could see the dog snout and the white blaze on the chest. (we are hoping to get copies of these pictures!). They ATVers went back into the brush found Odie and put out dog food – he would not go with them. So they contacted Julie and she went out into the woods – the mother bear was NOT in sight and she called to Odie and he came to her – she walked for at least 3 miles with him in her arms as it was getting dark and with his limited vision he was scared to walk. Julie was frightened because the area has a lot of coyotes etc. The folk on the ATV were following her to keep a look out. For the last bit – they were able to put Odie on the back with one of the riders and Julie ‘sat’ up by the engine! So Odie was being cared for by a BLACK BEAR! Just an amazing story…. When we get the pictures we will definitely share with you all! “

here you can find a picture of the dog... http://www.novascoti...n-pictou-co-ns/
