Do real men eat quiche? Sometimes. Can you teach an old dog new tricks? Of course. Do bears enjoy the occasional dip in the pool? Depends. If they get to wear these adorable little swim suits from RuggedBear, AND there is a plentiful supply of fresh salmon in the pool, definitely. Glad we cleared that up.
As far as I can tell, pretty much all bears are rugged. They live in the woods, wear flannel shirts and grow big beards, and eat fish straight out of the river without even cooking them! I guess if you want to get technical, there are bears at zoos and in circuses that maybe aren't the most rugged. But we're not talking about those bears.
