By Lois Lumbra — No school today. Penny came by in the early afternoon, to spend a few minutes with us. She had been out on her side-by-side with Bella (she takes Bella out for a ride and walks around up in the Gibou area). She was out in the woods having a short rest, when suddenly Bella started barking and took off after something: That something happened to be a small bear. . .
