Arrival Story: Bentley was rescued from the pound when a rescue volunteer went to get another dog and saw him there. She fostered him and saw to his vetting. He found a home and was in it for almost one year but was returned. The older couple's daughter moved back home with a baby and they said Bentley growled when the baby cried so they were scared and brought him back. Poor Benni. His original foster mom took him back but she has a dog who is expected to die any day from cancer and she is fostering a mom and 5 new pups. She has other dogs too! She asked if he could stay here so I could take him for adoption day at Petsmart. By the time she came to get him he was all settled in and she asked if he could stay. He is so gentle and sweet I can not imagine him hurting anyone! I think there was another reason the people gave him up that nothing to do with his personality. At any rate he is safe here and loved. We will find him a good home and in the mean time he is my shadow. He is house trained and a very well mannered boy.
Bio: Bentley does not bark, chew, get into things. He is house trained and gentle. He gets along with his housemates. He loves to cuddle. Benni loves me and I love him. He is learning to like his new dad. I think a man was not kind to him at some time in his life but his new dad is patient and gentle and kind.
Dad put me in the suv early this morning and I was excited till I saw that mom was not coming with me. What is happening?
Dad put Baron in the kennel next to me. He is as scared as I am. What is happening to us?
When the car stopped Dad took me out on a leash.....OH NO!!! I'm at the vet. For goodness sake what is going on here? I'm not sick. Is it time for my yearly? What? OK I went inside and dad held me up and I got a shot. I felt relaxed right away. Ms Jodi put me in a kennel. Then Baron was put in next to me. He said he got a shot too. Baron's not sick. What is going on here?
I got it now. Baron said dad talked to the people here abut our teeth! Clean our teeth? That's what we are here for. I want my mom. How could she do this to me. Will I ever see her again? I want my mom. Dad told them that I am mom's shadow and her "love". Ms Jodi, Ms Britney and Ms Amanda all said tell her we will take good care of her boys. Baron is mom's love too but not as much as me. I have been with her longer and I love my mom so so so much. I am trembling all over. I am so very scared. I want to go home.
My big brother Buddy left today. He was sick for quite a while and he said he was miserable and unhappy. He sat on Mom's lap but he couldn't stay cause he was so uncomfortable. He loved Mom so much that I knew when he didn't stay on her that he was really sick. Mom and Dad took Buddy to the vet and he didn't come home with them. Mom cried all afternoon and I tried to stay close to make her feel better. I promised Buddy I would watch over her for him. Buddy was a good brother. He welcomed me here and shared his parents, home and family with me. I will miss my big brother.
Mom calls me her shadow. That's cause I follow her everywhere she goes and I even sleep with her. She needs me to be close to her. I make her feel good. I let her pet me. When she wakes up at night some times she pets me. It helps her go back to sleep. When she is resting on the sofa I cuddle with her and it helps her relax. I'm good to my Mommy. She loves me very much and I love her very much right back.
