Last Night



My ‘old man’ Bentley (World’s best co-pilot, and just 2 weeks shy of his 14th Birthday) took his last breath next to me around 3am this morning. I kept him close all the way to the end. Rest In Peace my wonderful fella. You will be missed terribly.

2. Sorry to hear that, Derek

I've been there myself a couple of times, seeing one of my best four-legged friends make his/her exit from this world. It's a hard, hard thing to go through. My condolences.

Bentley was a Westie? Did you have him since he was a pup?

7. Bentley was third West Highland Terrier

He arrived at my home December 2005, after my 1st Westie, Holly crossed the Rainbow Bridge in May 2005. I adopted a Westie Rescue in September 2005, only to have him pass away from Liver Failure 3 months later. Westie Rescue, Charlie, was given up by previous alcoholic owner (sense a trend?)

At that time, I was a City Letter Carrier in Saint Petersburg, FL, and one of my former customers informed me that Bentley was at local pet store. Yup, I got Bentley at a Pet Store. He was already 6 months old, and was a challenge to house train, after living in a crate for so many months.

His reaction to grass I can still remember. I came by a small mix breed toy poodle/Bichon/King Charles mix puppy 4 1/2 years ago named Juno, all 5 1/2 pounds.

Believe I'll stay at one dog. Single (and loving it) and traveling alone with 2 dogs can be a bit nerve racking at times. Anyhow, here's who's left

3. My deepest sympathies...we've been through this too many times in our home.

Our fur babies are always hard to say goodbye to, but I have found solace in the memories and the knowledge that they all had a better life than they might have and we benefited from them being around too.

4. Sorry for your loss mate ... losing our furry friends is the worst :(



Safe passages, Bentley.

P.S. My folks have a kitty named Bentley ... and one named Healey, and one named Lola ... you sense a trend?

P.P.S. That looks like an Acura ... TL, maybe?

9. Heart felt sympathy. I recently went through this with my Tortie, Boudicca

I still look around, expecting to see her stretched out and snoozing in a sunbeam.

Sounds like Bentley had a great life with you. I know from personal experience many times over how hard this is. Take care during this very difficult time.
