He might not have rescued anyone, but Bear was still a beautiful dog, and his memory shouldnt be tarnished because of his greedy owners. Very sad.

No question Shields is a con who exploited Bear; but I sense a lot of other, unanswered questions.

For starters, what's the deal with co-author Nancy West? Did she get a post-publication message from God (Dog spelled backwards) or what? And what did she do with any money she made off the book?

Just curious.

So sorry that Bear could not have had an honest owner and life. RIP
