Good Morning Dan!
Wanted to take a quick second to share with you my big “WOW’ at 3 am this morning.
I felt wet licks at my feet and then my hands. My first thought is that our English Bulldog Nala had made her way into our room. Bentley sleeps in Skye’s room and has NEVER left her room to come get me. He ALWAYS wakes her up himself. When I opened my eyes and focused, Bentley was next to my bed staring at me. I greeted him with a “hey buddy”! His reply was simply a big paw on the side of my bed. Now I am not even sure I can put into words the emotions that I began to feel at this very moment. I got up and said okay lets go check Skye. After checking we treated him with a good high (yes he got extra!!) Skye’s bg 360!!!!
I cant even explain to you the amazing feeling knowing that our boy was adamant about making sure Skye corrected when she would not wake up for him. I’ve waited for this moment since the day I called and said sign us up! I thought it only be fitting that I share with you this amazing moment.
We have had many wow moments with Bentley. He is constantly maturing and learns new things very quickly. I am so proud of Bentley and Skye for working hard together and for reaching this point in training.
We have a perfect DAD! I mean it. He’s a perfect match for Skye. Yes he’s still a puppy and loves to drag toys into the yard, he loves to play tug of war with Nala, he’s had to learn his boundaries and sometimes he’s even stubborn. He’s beautiful! He has a perfect coat, perfect weight and is going to eat us out of our house and home lol Can you tell how much we love him?
We knew going into this decision that it would take a lot of dedication and hard work. We also knew that it would pay off and I am so happy to say that writing you this little note this morning, it has definitely paid off! What’s even greater is that we still have so much more to look forward to and so much more that Bentley will be able to for Skye!
