Huckleberry Bear Bear

Huckleberry Bear Bear came to Earthfire in 1997 from a private owner who realized that as cute as he was as a cub, she couldn’t keep him as a pet once he started to grow. A very emotional bear, he grieved for a long time when he lost his brother, Major Bear. He lived to be a luxuriously zaftig senior bear who took his pre-hibernation foraging (and berry pies) seriously. His favorite foods were grapes and cherry pie, with lots of homemade whipped cream.
