Thankful Thursday...


Well, as most of you know we lost our little buddy Bentley on Saturday May 8th. We're just now (on May 20th) able to talk about him and look at some pics without crying. It's been difficult and we both miss him terribly. 

He used to sit in Paul's lap every morning while Paul worked at his computer and then when I got up, he curled up in my lap while I drank my coffee. 

At night, 95% of the time, he slept with me, crawled under the covers (have never known a dog to do that). It's hard walking in the door and he's not there to greet us.  

Here's a few pics before I go on to what I'm thankful for. 

On my lap


With his buddy, Sawyer

I'd like to say he loved playing catch but it was keep away he loved! 

He loved car rides

He loved Willow

But most of ALL, he loved his dad 💓

I'm thankful this Thursday that we have Katniss and Arya and that Arya greets us at the door when we come home. It helps. 

I'm thankful that Arya sits on Paul's lap in the mornings and tries to fill that void. 

I'm thankful I have the best friends and family anyone could ask for. 

I'm thankful that we've all been vaccinated, and no one in our family was hospitalized with Covid.

I'm thankful the country is on the mend and we now have lifted the mask and 6' mandate (although I haven't been in a store yet without my mask). 

I'm thankful I have a beautiful home to wake up to each morning. 

I'm thankful I got to spend what little time we had with Bentley. He was a goofy dog and we loved him. 

What are you thankful for? I'd love to hear. 

As always...thanks for stopping by.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I had a Yorkie too. He has been gone many years now but I still miss him every single solitary day. Bentley was such a cutie! I truly believe that once our time comes, we will be reunited with our beloved pets.
