Decisions for Bentley & NH??

The nursing home called, everybody is missing Bentley but I'm not sure what to do.
He hasn't been in awhile because when Ky was hurting so bad I stayed with her, then Bentley and the sock fiasco. Now he's going through his 'ugly' period.

I believe that structure and routines are important but I would hate to get to the NH and have Bentley suddenly pull his "No hablo Inglťs" routine.
He's always on his best behavior when we go there but at the moment he's very unpredictable.

Maybe I'll go visit them by myself and leave him home. I don't know. So complicated...

Maybe he'll remember his Ingles at the NH. He may be missing his outings and that may be contributing to his issues. I don't blame you for being concerned. Sorry, I'm no help. He sure is cutie though.

Go with him, but plan on staying only a short time. Ask the staff to explain to his friends that you're not sure if he's going to behave, that he's going through a rebellious phase. He might surprise you and be an angel.

Take him and see how it goes. I bet he will be good. Keep a good eye on him and leave if he misbehaves.

Bentley went to the NH this AM. He was excited to see his friends so he was a bit over zealous for a couple of minutes but then he settled right down and acted like a perfect gentleman going from friend to friend giving gentle kisses.

On the way home I told him that he's a bald faced fraud but he just smiled at me

I'm not surprised it went well. Tess also makes a difference between home and 'work'. I always tell people who fawn over her in the hospitals that she would greet them with jumps and whining when they would come to my door. She always settles straight down, but it's really different. Good job, Bentley!

Bentley is a street angel and a house devil. Glad it went well today. My mother in law always said be glad you have dogs and children with good outside manners and that any problems that arise inside the house can be worked on.

Good boy Bentley! We've always noticed that Chase is much more cautious and timid outside the house than in. People always say how calm he is and we just laugh! He's a good boy Glad to hear all went well!
