Bhageera is a Bouvier Des Flanders, and he is a large, calm, daily presence at the dog park. If you are wondering where this Belgian herding dog got such an exotic name, it is found in Kipling’s The Jungle Book, and it means “the panther.” Well, “panther,” welcome your new little brother, Baloo, which means “the bear!” So, a panther and a bear walk into a Bark Park…..!!! Bhageera is 5 years old and a beautiful Bouvier who recently welcomed 12-month-old Baloo into the household. Like any new sibling, this little bear is surely giving the panther a run for his money…or should I say his toys and his bed. Bhageera is a very patient older brother pooch. However, time will tell when Baloo will have to take a step back for sure.
Like all dog-lovers, the Gupta family love their pooches! Mr. & Mrs. both work from home for tech companies and their son, whose love of The Jungle Book explains how Bhageera got his name, is a competitive tennis player who is very interested in playing college tennis. So I am sure the panther and the little bear will be watching lots of tennis in the future!
Riding in the car is one of Bhageera’s favorite things so he can stick his head out the window and feel the breeze. You may have seen that shaggy head leaning out of the window of an Audi traveling down Narcoossee! Well, Baloo has definitely taken over his seat for now. Bhageera is so patient and tolerant. His herding dog instincts shine in the way he cares for his new brother. Surely he will be teaching Baloo along the way, and he will eventually regain his reserved front seat in the car just like old times. Go for it, Bhageera!!!
