Tweet by a dog’s human just went viral because he exposed his not-so-good-boy for taking bribe from a bear. Twitter user @JesseNeon posted that his dog, who is supposed to be a guard dog and bark at anything that enters his compound at night, keeps quiet and lets a bear access his trash because the bear bribes the dog with deer bones.
Shared on May 8, the post explains how miserably his dog fails at its night job. The post further reads, “This is the THIRD TIME he’s been gifted deer bones in exchange for being allowed access to my trash, AND HE KEEPS DOING IT.” The tweet, which captured the attention of netizens, has gained more than 320,000 “likes” and 81,000 retweets.
My idiot furry son has one job at night - bork at things and make them go away. Easy, right?— Jesse 'Writer, Not Writer*' Jordan (@JesseNeon) May 8, 2019
HOWEVER, a bear has learned that my furry son can be bought. This is the THIRD TIME he's been gifted deer bones in exchange for being allowed access to my trash, AND HE KEEPS DOING IT. pic.twitter.com/6NOKiFNLgm

Seems like their relationship is fairly established. It's doubtful the bear of the dog anticipate bothering each other. Instead, the are the funniest animal duo seen lately.— Trisherann (@Trisherann) May 9, 2019
Dog: How much you got 👀?— wairachu_ (@kelvin_wairachu) May 9, 2019
Bear: deer bones
Dog: Get in
The dog’s owner further commented on the same tweet revealing that the dog is a mastiff/hound mutt and his name is Brickleberry or Brick. He left comments on his own tweet to give some background information about his furry pet.
Although I basically handed my dog this position of power, it's become very clear that he has no idea how to actually do the job properly; now not only do I have to clean up a huge mess, I see him putting his own self-interest first. Clearly, I have no choice but to impeach him.— Jesse 'Writer, Not Writer*' Jordan (@JesseNeon) May 8, 2019
Just so I don't have to repeat it any more, doggo's name is Brickleberry but he answers to Brick. He's a mastiff/hound mutt with some beagle in him, and he is the best boi. His mom died days after he was born, so I raised him by hand. He is great with kids and apparently bears.— Jesse 'Writer, Not Writer*' Jordan (@JesseNeon) May 9, 2019
When some Twitter users expressed concerns for the dog’s safety, the owner left another comment saying that “the black bears are a nuisance in northern Ontario and not typically a threat, meaning Brick is very much not likely to get eaten. If he was, I wouldn’t let him sleep outside.” He also shared some adorable images of Brick. Check them out:
I -have- to turn off notifications for this thread, but I'll leave you all with one final reminder that black bears are a nuisance in northern Ontario and not typically a threat, meaning Brick is very much not likely to get eaten. If he was, I wouldn't let him sleep outside. pic.twitter.com/I1gtj5iXuU— Jesse 'Writer, Not Writer*' Jordan (@JesseNeon) May 9, 2019
What do you think about this fine arrangement between the dog and a bear?
