I had requests for more Lars pictures, but it was hard because HE WAS FIGHTING A BEAR.
At least, the family is safe from rogue stuffed wildlife.
He moved on to chasing his tail, which I can’t tell whether it’s normal or the consequence of four cat siblings. Either way, SO CUTE.

This post ended here last night, and I thought it was all in good fun and not PREPPING FOR BATTLE. But the above was actually boot camp.
My husband and puppy met the giant, trash-eating, enemy last night.
Scott: There was an OPOSSUM BEAR in our backyard.
What’s an Opossum Bear? An opossum that has clearly bred with a bear because how else would it have gotten SO HUGE it could not be scared away by a six-foot two-inch man and his war-ready giant black lab puppy.
Since it was our backyard, Lars wasn’t on leash and headed right into battle. First, he attempted to chase Opossum Bear’s tail as he has almost caught his own once in that video. Opossum Bear was not impressed, and since he is part bear, he snarled rather than ran away.
Scott was faced with brokering a peace deal between a dog who thinks opossum bears might be great toys and opossum bears who don’t give a crap what Scott thinks. Since my skills of getting between stuffed bear and Lars one hundred times a day were not called upon, I can only assume Scott coaxed Lars away with lies about bacon and spending time with the dishwasher.
PS. Perhaps the requests for pictures of Lars just meant this:
