a gentleman he was. He brought along his high energy, wiggles and lolling
Bentley first came to visit us when he was only 5 months old. He's turning 3 in August this year.
We've watched him grow into a very good boy! He's definitely true to his Border Collie cross breed in his energy and behaviours.
When he set eyes on Sadie he took a small step back as if to say, "Oh, wait. I don’t know you? I better go slower." And he did just that. It was obvious how excited he was. I could clearly see him exercising self control. What a good boy Bentley.

new girl will be able to keep up with his energy level.
Miss Hazel would be arriving in less than an hour so we headed outdoors for a bit of first play time while it was still cool. I suspected these two would get along great and much to my delight, they do! Bentley is more interested in playing ball and Sadie loves the stuffys and tug toys so there was happy play with plenty of choices.

We continued enjoying it with the doors wide open to be able to come and go as we wanted. I was able to repot a few more plants and I'm almost ready to plant my patio bedding plants. Having such a cooperative pack makes my days so easy. They really mind themselves and all I have to do is make sure I have their mealtimes at the right time and it's ALL GOOD!
|Try to get a smile when you've just made them stop playing to sit still. Forget it!|
|Hazel - "Hey? Sadie, let's see if we can get Bentley in the pool?"|
|Hazel - "Hey Bentley! Look! There's a ball in the pool!"|
|Bentley - "Forget it! I'd rather play ruff n tumble!"|
I was able to set up a crate on the porch, thanks to Bentley's mom. She was selling Bentley's because he no longer uses it. Thank you! Now we don't have to take the downstairs one apart to bring it outdoors. Coolies!
|Lady May - Hey Nice Crate! Thanks Bentley!|
|Bentley - "How come I couldn't have a bed buddy at my own house?"|
By 3 pm all the dogs decided it was nap time. Well almost all. Bentley wasn't really tired but was very compliant and agreed to have a lay-down while the others slept. Well almost had a lay-down. He wandered from bed to bed but at least he was being gentlemanly.
What a good boy Bentley. He sure listens well mom! Remember what a little rascal he was as a puppy! He's getting all grown up with lots of friends now.
I know Hazel and Sadie will be very happy to visit with him again soon. I'm hopeful Bentley will find a great friend in Khione when he meets her in a few days!
Watch for it 😉
|Sadie bides her time while the other two tire themselves out.|
|Three Amigos, or Three cows, you decide. Either way they surely love the fresh grass shoots.|

Not a chance without a ball in the end of that toy dear Hazel. Not a chance!
