From Peggy in Ohio who has Bentley from our Q-litter
I just wanted to share a wonderful experience I had today. I went to church service and took our wolfhound Bentley with me to help me do the children sermon. He had a great time loving the kids and the grown ups. Then we got home and had a message from the Toledo Childrens hospital asking if we could find the time to bring Bentley for special visit as there was a boy there who was asking for him. I called them and told them we would head over. We got there and a young boy and all of his family were there and all he was asking for was Bentley to come and visit him. Bentley went right to him and he got kisses and hugs and the young boy was so happy he told Bentley how much he loved him and they thanked me for bringing him. We took the time to visit the other kids while we were there and Bentley had love and kisses for everyone. He brought so many smiles today I just had to share what an amazing blessing he is. It is so wonderful to be able to share is love with everyone. Everyone at the Hospital thinks wolfhounds are just big love pups.
Thanks for letting me share this!
