NPA: Ch. 5: Penguins & Polar Bears

Woos everyone! We were traveling along at a pretty good clip for most of the day. we stopped for a snack at the BIGGEST pile of bones you ever saw!!! Come on, what husky could resist whale bones!

When we finished, we looked around....uh-oh...Penguin is MISSING!!! We searched all around. We sniffed the air and caught Penguin's scent- we started that direction & noticed a set of very small footprints leading around a big mound of snow. We slipped quietly over the top & saw this-

What a cutie pie! And what a problem - now what we are going to do? We woo'd and woo'd at the little guy, trying to distract him so we could rescue Penguin. Nothing worked. He made a lot of noise for such a little guy! and when mama came back, mama wasn't happy either! She ran over to him, and then towards us and we began to wonder if this was the end of our adventure!

She dropped Penguin right at our paws and said "That cub of mine just doesn't get that not everything is HIS. I hope he hasn't hurt your Penguin! Now apologise, Little Bear" and the cub said "Sorry".
Jack was too stunned to say anything, but I thanked her for being so gracious, and told her I would ask Santa to bring her cub a penguin toy of his own (although I think his mama would like to have the real thing!)

Jack curled up with Penguin for the night, and wooo'd him a lullaby.

And for the first time, we saw the Aurora Borealis dance in the sky above.
(Happy Birthday, Sherman)

Howoooowooowoo Happy Birthday Sherman! & Kisses to our granddogs Starr & Ice.
No way we could forget kisses to you two also, so glad Mama Polar Bear was in a reasonable frame of mind, that could have been really scary!
Warm hugs from Florida,

Happy Birthday to Sherman! The Aurora's were there for him!

You should have left penguin for the poor little polar bear. I don't think they have those up there.
