Bentley said goodbye to this world on Jan 8, 2012. This is the first time I've been able to revisit his page since I've been missing him so badly. He suffered from laryngeal paralysis which we surgically fixed, however his neurological problem was more severe than we thought and before long his entire neck and mouth were paralyzed. His tongue wouldn't work so he could no longer eat. I held him in my arms are promised him I would be strong for him as he crossed over. I am counting on seeing him again someday and not a day will go by without one of my memories of my happy, friendly pup making me smile. Bentley, I still miss you everyday but I know your fine now and we'll be together again some day.
I'll always keep you in my heart my friend.

Well, I know it's been a long time since there's been news, but now there's big
stuff going on. Mom and I moved to Exeter into a condo. Sara and Brian are here too sometimes, but Mom and Dad got a "divorce". It seemed to happen so quickly and I always hate when the suitcases come out. I don't have a yard anymore to patrol, but we take nice long walks and I've made many new friends, though the big dogs on the corner aren't nice at all. Mom even lets me off leash at the old high school-lots of good smells over there. There are a few dogs in our complex, but I haven't met them yet.
The best part of this whole ordeal is that Mom lets me sleep with her. I've never been allowed to sleep on a human's bed before and the first night I FELL OFF!!! It's ok though, Mom picked me back up and cuddled me util I fell back to sleep.
I miss Brian and Sara when they're not here, but Mom says we'll see them all the time once we get settled.


What was that???

About that new picture Mom posted:

Well, it's spring and time to be outside in the yard with all my friends and family. Last weekend, Mom and Sara were trimming bushes and raking leaves and we had a cute little guy visit us. He was being pretty antisocial and hiding out near the tree and I just couldn't understand why he wouldn't come over and say hi. I just had had enough of that and decided to introduce myself in my ever friendly terrier way. I really just wanted to get a good sniff, but my new "friend" wasn't having any of that and the next thing I knew my face was covered with these sharp pointy hairs. Mom was screaming at me to stop and "come" and I did hear her but I just c0uldn't help myself. I can't believe the nerve of that guy to come into MY yard, then just act all defensive and pinch me with his fur. I found out later at the emergency vet that it was a porcupine and I wasn't supposed to mess with him. I guess he was really scared of me-I never thought I was that scary, but why didn't he just say so. I just wanted to play since I'd never met a porcupine before.
I had to have some medicine to make me sleepy so the dr could take all the quills out of my face and mouth. Mom wasn't happy that she got a big doctor bill, but I'm all better now. I haven't seen that guy again, but if he would just come back, maybe we could just talk about it.

I had to go to the vet again today because I have kennel cough. I kept Mom up all night-it sounds a lot worse that it is. We think I caught it from someone at my groomers. Maybe I won't have to ever go back there.
