bears are just big dogs. i have always believed this and you cannot convince me otherwise

@trappleton Well, according to Wikipedia, bears are from "one of nine families in the suborder Caniformia, or "doglike" carnivorans, within the order Carnivora." Caniformia includes dogs, wolves, and foxes. So. They are in fact related.

@dani yes!! some scientist was really doing the right thing when they split all of the order Carnivora into either Feliformia or Caniformia. hell yes. everyone is either a cat or a dog, get in line
