Best Friends Day

Scratching bellies with Bentley Basset Hound and Pierre Westie
Me: “Hey boys, guess what day it is?”
Pierre: “Is it my birthday? Will there be cake?”
Bentley: “It’s Thursday. Can we have cake?”
Me: “Never mind, I’ll just tell y’all so there is no brain strain. It is Best Friends’ Day! Since you two are best friends, I thought it would be nice to tell everyone what makes a best friend.”

Pierre: “That’s easy! Bentley is my best friend because he likes to wrestle with me. He also doesn’t try to catch MY squirrels or lizards. I respect that in a friend.”
Bentley: “Can I think about it and get back to you with my answer? I mean, he IS my best friend but sometimes he drives me crazy. It’s like a few minutes ago when I was in the middle of a great dream and he started barking at the squirrels in the yard. Do you know how hard it is to pick up where you leave off in a dream?”
Pierre: “Oh, so that’s how it is gonna be, huh? Well, you snore so loud that I can barely hear myself bark. You also hog the couch and refuse to push over for me to stretch out. I didn’t mention those things because I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.”
Bentley: “I wasn’t trying to hurt your feelings. You are so sensitive sometimes. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but I can’t go around apologizing to you all of the time. It’s a cruel world out there and you need to develop a thick skin like me.”

Pierre: “I’ll have you know that I take great care of my skin and fur. I don’t want my skin to be thicker. Admit it, you like my quirks and sensitivity. Maybe we are best friends because our differences balance us out?”
Bentley: “I’ve heard that a best friend is someone that knows all about you including the faults but loves you anyway. You know that I love you, you crazy barking fur ball! I'm thankful for your friendship.”
Pierre: “Awww, thanks. I love you too. You are a snoring couch hog but you’re MY snoring couch hog. Let’s go find some cake, buddy!”
Happy Best Friends Day

  24. These two are adorable! Icy & Phoebe are very different dogs too. They're good friends but Icy is definitely the boss of Phoebe! I'm guessing Bentley rules the roost in your house!
