In his superbly written book, Kuruk tells about his journey on a big truck, visiting with the veterinarians, flying on an airplane, more trucks, ending in a shelter.
Soon different humans began to come in to the shelter and take the pups away one by one. A foster Momma took Kuruk from the shelter.
The foster Momma had other dogs at her home too. One day a pretty lady with a very big Malamute named Simba came to visit Kuruk. The pretty lady asked Kuruk if he would like to live with her and Simba. Kuruk was full of joy. The lady soon came back, with a new collar and harness for Kuruk, put him in her car, and off they went. Well, I just want to set the record straight. I'm a divorced dad. I'd like to play a more active role with the child-rearing, but Mama Bear thinks I'm too rough and might eat the kids.
OK, well, I did once, but only because there weren't enough berries that year and I was really, really hungry. Now the ladies stay in groups and keep me away. Sometimes we hook up in the spring, but we just can't live together anymore. You know how it is. I've heard the humans have similar habits. Anyway, those humans think they're so smart. A long time ago, a bunch of stinky males used to come into the forest and cut down trees and then trade them for little pieces of colored paper that were made from other trees.
If they traded the trees to people in the United States, the paper was always green. Then the humans traded this paper for other things like food.
Ep. 028-What Defines a Dog’s Life?
It all seemed kind of dumb to me. Later on, my ex will tell you how us bears get our food and, even though it's tough sometimes, it's a hell of a lot simpler than cutting down trees.
We require about 40, calories a day to maintain our body weight so we need lots of food. And not many people know this, but we keep growing until the day we die. But getting back to the humans.

In order to get the trees out of the forest, they needed trails, so they cut down even more trees to make clear areas. They called these paths "logging roads" because they moved the logs over them. There's an old logging road that runs along the Neekite River. It starts at the Great Bear Lodge and goes about ten kilometers six miles into the woods.
Tom and Marg, the owners of the lodge, keep it clear. I like walking on it, too, when no one else is around, especially in the spring when I can rub my scent all over the trees and keep the other male bears away. Sometimes I even like to roll around in the mud. Tom is actually a pretty clever guy for a human and has figured out how to live way out here and how to take care of the visitors that come to see me.
He's got a fancy piece of paper that says he earned a degree in electrical engineering. I don't know exactly what that is, but there are wires and panels and tubes all over the place. These funny looking contraptions somehow get energy from the sun, wind and moving water and allow people inside the lodge to cook food and have light after the sun sets. The humans are really fussy about what they eat. Tom and Marg had to hire a crew of young people to live there and cook special food three times a day for the visitors.
Every day at the crack of dawn, Cindy gets up and makes whole wheat pancakes with flax seeds, broccoli and mushroom frittatas and other ridiculously nutritious stuff. Really now, couldn't these spoiled guests just get up and eat some grubs like I do and be on their way?

As if that weren't enough, the lunches and dinners are even more lavish. Heather makes gourmet dinners like king crab legs and she even bakes cookies every day. There is one food, however, that humans and bears can agree on. We both like salmon. Here I am with two rambunctious toddlers who can't be left alone for one second or else they will wander off and be attacked by a wolf.
And where is their father? Typical male, he struts all over the forest and never once lifts a claw to help with the kids or bring home any food. After I got pregnant with the twins he didn't even stick around for their birth.
