Love is a Four Legged Word

Bentley came into our lives on May 22, 2011. He was a teacup Chihuahua* that literally weighed one pound and fit in the palm of my hand. He was the cutest thing you could ever see, yet I wanted nothing to do with him. I know. I sound terrible.

Prior to Bentley, I was always afraid of dogs. I liked dogs from a distance but never wanted them around me. Fast forward to 2016 and I couldn't imagine day-to-day life without the little guy. It's amazing how much joy a dog can bring into your life. From the little things like greeting you at the door to the irritating things like constantly barking when someone is at the door (we're still working on that last one). 

Ben brings so much love and happiness into our home. I always heard that pets become family and thought that people were absolutely crazy when they said that. Now, I completely understand. Whether it be a cat (I strongly dislike cats) or dogs, they become extremely loyal and an integral part of the fam jam. Happy belated birthday to Ben! He turned 5 on May 22nd and of course, we celebrated with a cake and all. That's totally normal, right?

*Ben was originally a teacup Chihuahua but has obviously grown to be much bigger than that.
