Bentley's Bargains

*Bentley has asked to say a few words on today’s post.  I have explained to him that it is BlogPaws’ Wordless Wednesday, which means we are supposed to limit our writing.  He has promised to keep it brief.
   Hey y’all, it’s Bentley here and I have a huge Hound Dog announcement today.  I don’t know if you have noticed anything new about our blog, but Mom and I have made some changes.  First off, we have switched from two sidebars to one and we changed our font.  Just let us know how y’all like it.  We are still kinda on the fence about it, so we need your feedback.  Just bark at us in the comments, but remember…no growling.
   My big news is that I have opened my very own store. Bentley's Bargains offers great stuff at huge discounts.  I’m all about saving money, because that means more to spend on stuff for me.  I know that you other dogs and cats know what I’m talking about here.  Anyway, I decided to call it Bentley’s Bargains on account of that is what it is, mine, and bargains.  It makes sense now doesn’t it?  Then…and this is the kicker; my tag line is “Bayou great pet supplies.”  It’s like Buy You, but I used Bayou!!  It’s pronounced the same way!  I just crack myself up whenever I am clever like that!  Mom thought it was classic and she gave me her okie dokie.  I am thinking this is how Wal Mart started out, except I don’t have long lines, and my register is always open!
   Well, as you can tell, I am just proud as a peacock.  Oh, wait!  I forgot to tell you another awesome thing about Bentley’s Bargains.  I will feature products that relate to our blog post of the day.  How cool am I?  If you’re wondering about Pierre’s role in my new business venture don't fret.  I am hiring him to be my accountant! Mom is hurrying me, so let me just say, you’ll be howling the praises of my low prices and quality products.  Sniff around and get your paws on fabulous goodies!   You'll find my new store at the bottom of each blog post. Thank you for shopping at Bentley’s Bargain and have a fantastic day!


This is my executive look!

Thanks to my friends at BlogPaws for hosting this fun-filled blog hop.  There are many great photos from these other bloggers, so hop along!

  6. So, Bentley . . . how about a link to the store? When I clicked the link above, it only takes me to "for publishers" and "for sellers" pages. . .
    And tell Mom that I am really looking forward to the next book!!!

  13. Bentley, the new font is great! The other font was difficult for me and Ma to read...even with our glasses on...I guess we are both getting old. I like the one sidebar too. That is what I have and I find that it makes the blog less "busy". You know, if you want to change anything and you do not know where to find it, just ask! We are happy to tell you where and what we have figured out in Blogger!

  16. Wow, your own store. That is the first step to being listed on the New York Stock Exchange. And the executive look would fit perfectly on Wall Street. And the play on Bayou is clever.

  21. I like the new look, two sidebars gives a squishy, cluttered feel. I want a new blog look but Mom says I have to make some more green papers first. We will see. Good you have an accountant. If you need a PR dog, Bailie is good. She works for me, but I can share. :) Emma your GBGV
