A Happy Tale: About Bentley
Bentley (far left) was a much loved animal companion whose owner fell on hard times. He had to
give his pal up for adoption so he asked his friends, who
already had two Westies, to give the fellow a home. They
did, and Bentley, who was 10 at the time, adjusted
instantly to his new life with his two other, younger Westie
companions, 5 and 7 years of age.
The three became fast friends! They slept together 9on
their owners’ bed, of course), ate together, and froliced
happily in the large fenced garden together, chasing each
other around trees, trying to
outrun the squirrels, and
barking a greeting to any
passersby. At right, the three
Westies play “puppy pileup!”
Despite a chronic skin condition -- which was treated with special
shampoo and an occasional topical medication -- and the diagnosis of
Canine Diabetes, which was kept under control thanks to a regimen of
insulin injections easily administered twice-a-day, Bentley was a
carefree Westie who acted far younger than his years. After a rich and
happy life, Bentley died at the age of 14-and-a-half. His adoption made
a difference -- not only for him, but for the couple who lovingly cared
for him and call him their own.
