It has been two months since Bentley has "legally" immigrated to the USA and we thought you would all like an update.

Bentley, just like Lynne said, is a Yappee young dog. So, he has been a lot of work! There were a couple of days that I was realllly cursing him out... and threatening him with deportation! However, I must say that this has all passed... and, except for the occasional spotting in the house, we have truly fallen for this little guy.

When we got Bentley in December, he weighed in at 13 lbs 2 oz. Today, he weighs 14 lbs, 8 oz! - Apparently, when Bentley immigrated, he brought along some friends in his intestinal tract... Those were considered "illegal" and were promptly extricated by the vet... hence, the improved health, and weight gain... Bentley does really look like a different dog. Attached is a picture of him with the original harness that Lynne gave us, as you can see it no longer fits.

It took a while for Bentley and Riley to get comfortable with each other - there is a lot of competitiveness between Patterdales - so generally, we can't leave them on their own with toys laying around. Now, they get along very well and certainly have mutual respect for each other. As time passes, Riley has come to accept Bentley into the family.

Below are some fun pictures that we have taken over the past few weeks. We wish you all a Happy Valentine! With kisses and hugs!
