Anyway, Ben and I want to thank you all for the well wishes, calls, cards, treats and gifts that have been pouring in from across the country. Mike and Hef stopped by and gave him a zebra which he loves. He took the 'brains' out of its head immediately 'cause apparently he likes his zebras stoooopid. Uncles Joe and Steve stopped in with treats yesterday and gave him all of the love and attention I withhold from him. Just look at his face, he'll tell you how bad he's got it. Mommy dresses him funny and makes him sleep on the cold, hard (plush, lambs-wool) doggie bed .
Today he got a care package from his friend Brinkley up in the Twin cities. In it was his newest buddy, Percevil Porkloin Piggy. There was a note from Brinkley:
Please note the part about the five...count 'em FIVE... squeakers. F.I.V.E. S.Q.U.E.A.K.E.R.S. ... Squeakers. Five of 'em. It sounds like a Loony Toons slaughter house in here. (Obviously Brinkley's parents are still a little miffed about the fact that I whacked their first born son up side the head with my spinning wheel last time they were here. Payback is indeed a b**ch!)
But Ben is in HOG heaven! Seriously, he's happier than a PIG in... SH..eh...ahem...well... the living room as it turns out. Really! He's SOW happy he's SQUEALING with joy."I don't want to get SLOPpy but I love you Percy Pig! NOM NOM NOM!"
(♥♥♥Thanks everyone who checked in and sent healing thoughts and hugs! They worked!
Much Love, Bentley♥♥♥)
