Lifetime of Protector’s

I’m going a little bit off the beaten path here today …………

I was 2 years old when I was attacked by a dog – It left me with scars and a dent in my head and years of headaches – I’ve always been fearful of them and sometimes freeze up when around them – yet I’ve always had dogs that protected me and watched over me~

Growing up we had a dog named Pooh Bear – She was fond of me and always went where I did – We spent years wondering the woods and exploring – she protected me from all danger – down to almost getting kidnapped (Man pulls up tells me to get in  I say no and he steps out and before he could put his foot on the ground Pooh Bear had him by the leg – needless to say he sped off)

I just buried my 12 year old bull dog Teddy Bear –  We just rented a house – he had never been in it and while investigating it on his 1st visit – He uncovered 2 run away boys from Juvy – They were hiding out in my attic on top of attempted robbery – Teddy refused to let me in the house and police was called – To make a long story short – police pulled the boys out of my attic and once the house was clear Teddy allowed me in – Needless to say Police wanted my dog ~

Now I have Boogie Bear – He is the son of Teddy and has the same wonderful spirit – As I watched him chase the squirrels from my strawberry patch today – I realized he watches me day in and day out tend to the strawberry’s and he knew the squirrels couldn’t eat them – He is but 2 years old and has yet to protect me from real harm – but in my heart I know he will~


I’ve been a family Genealogist/Native American Researcher for over 30+ years and have traced over 65,000+ people for my research - My main area of research is in MI, IN, CT, NY, RI, PA, MA, VA, VT, NJ, OH, KY, Block Island & Long Island areas - dealing with many of the colonial people & tribes in these locations.
