Bentley Basset: “It’s day 8 of our humans’ government ordered “Stay at Home” mandate which means we have them all to ourselves! It’s the greatest time ever to be a dog or cat.” 
Pierre Westie: “Mom and Dad are retired but our jobs as guard dogs are essential.

 I am on my perimeter search and it seems another dog passed by earlier. I’m going to bark even though he is long gone. Again, it’s my job.”

Bentley: “Wake me if there is an emergency.”
Bentley: “No, a lizard is not an emergency.”

Bentley: “Please don’t disturb my grooming experience with your lizard hunt. Again, it is NOT an emergency."

Pierre: “I didn’t say spotting a lizard was an emergency, but it can lead to an exciting chase. Now, where did it go?”
Louie da Lizard: “That little white terrier-ist will never recognize me with my mustache made from his own fur!” (Insert evil lizard laugh)
Pierre: “Don’t worry, I know he’s there. I’m just trying to act cool and hope Mom doesn’t want to brush me next.”
Sharing coffee
Bentley: “It is a weird and scary time to be a human. Ours are riding their bikes again, doing household chores, and making the best of their time together. We hope your humans are doing well and taking care of themselves. Remember to give them extra love as they are going to need it.”

  1. a lizard is no emergency case? but a dove? a dove is, right? we have day 14 and still 14 days to go,.. or more...

  2. We miss our sports a lot, but otherwise, life isn't much different for us since we are always home together anyway. You all stay safe!

  3. The close-up of Mr. Lizard with dog fur all over...LOL!

  4. It's been weird for our humans too, but we do have weird humans!

  5. Did Louie get away? The closest thing we have to a lizard is a squirrel.

  6. Well done Pierre and cannot let your Guard Dog instincts get rusty...
    We are well and glad you 2 and your staff are too
    Hugs Cecilia

  7. Looks like all is well and peaceful at your house. Except for the brushing. And the evil lizard. And the midnight possible dog-intruder. Stay safe, frens.

    Love and licks,

  8. Congrats to Allen J!

    Yup these are strange times and definitely call for CCS (close canine surveillance). You guys look like you're holding up well. Go easy on the lizard though, Pierre. Life is rough enough on them. 🦎

  9. Waits...WHAT??? I have to disagree Bentley....a lizard IS SO an emergency! Pierre, non-terrierist just don't gets it.....sigh.
    Good work keepin' your peeps safe at home! Oh, Ma wanted to tells you she really knows NOTHIN' abouts growin' FABulous orchids....she just gets lucky ☺ She has only gotten one plant to bloom again once it lost it's blooms. here is a great website:

  10. We also have to side with Pierre, lizard are definite emergencies!!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  11. You boys sure take your jobs seriously! ;)

  12. COngrats to the lucky winner! Keep your folks healthy. XO

  13. We hit day 17 here. Lady guesses it will be between 60-90 days before things start to change. Lady wonders how people without pets are surviving.

  14. Such wild times, indeed. We are glad you're taking care of your folks, Bentley and Pierre. Love and health to you all.

  15. We are so glad you boys are keeping your parents (and us) entertained during these tough times! I'm glad you let them out for a bike ride too, that is very good for them. ♥
