Sleep in Heavenly Peace with Petlinks

Pierre Westie: “I have been more than patient while Bentley celebrated his birthday on our blog but when my new bed from Petlinks® arrived, it was time for me to put my paw down.
Barking from the Bayou received a Petlinks bed in exchange for an honest review. We only share products that we feel our readers will love. 
I have included an Amazon link in this post and if you purchase via this link, I will receive a small commission. 
   Let me start by saying this is the most comfortable bed that I have ever laid on in my entire life. As some of you might know, I have trust issues with new things, so it took me a minute or two to climb in the bed. Now, I refuse to move because Bentley is chomping at the bit to steal it. Let me tell you more about this amazing bed. I’ll try not to doze off but I am really comfy.
   It is the Rejuvenate Supreme Soother™ Gel Memory Foam Pet Bed. That means that cats will love this bed too. My bed is extra-large measuring a whopping 42”x30”.

I do have Amazon affiliate links in this post and will receive a small commission if you make a purchase through those links. It will not affect your cost at all. Thank you.
“My name is Bentley and I am a squeakaholic. Toys that squeak make me extremely happy. It is not unusual for one of my squeaky binges to last five or more minutes. There is nothing quite like that shrill sound of a toy well-squeaked. The problem is some grumpy people Mom and Dad get tired of hearing my marathon squeaking.

BFTB NETWoof News December 11, 2017

Bentley Basset Hound: “Hello and welcome to this week’s BFTB NETWoof news. We have once again fetched some excellent stories that should make you smile. Pierre, what’s our top story?”
BFTB NETWoof News Top Story on adoption
Pierre Westie: “You know we love a sweet rescue story, so we chose the story of a man’s travels to rescue his best friends. Michael Henn is a member of Nebraska’s National Guard and went to the island of St. Croix to help after Hurricane Maria. That is where he met two dogs and knew he had to make them part of his family. The dog’s owners had recently passed away and Henn was assured that he could adopt them. It wasn’t quite as simple as he was led to believe but soon the two dogs were waiting for him in a North Carolina shelter. After a twenty-hour drive, he was reunited with the dogs. We know they will be having a very happy holiday season this year!”

   Having a dog is supposed to change your life. You are welcoming another member of the family when you bring home that wriggly wrinkled puppy. If you are really lucky, that pup becomes your “heart dog.” To me, that means a connection that goes beyond the normal human/dog bond. Bentley is that dog for me.
