I am, in all reality, the luckiest father on the planet.  I have three beautiful, healthy, caring daughters.  Each day I come home from work, they struggle with each other as they race to the door to give me the “first hug.”  I’m blessed, no doubt.

But having a wife and three daughters at home makes for a very “emotionally rich” environment.  I often just need some good old fashion male bonding with my golden retriever, Bentley.  He’s fun, active, entertaining, and constantly loyal.  We can go for walks, wrestle on the floor, or throw the tennis ball.  He brightens my day just as my girls do.  He’s a great companion and true friend.  And just like a true friend, we can also be perfectly content to simply be near each other and not say a word.

“Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal.  Difficult standards for people to live up to.”
-Alfred A. Montapert

Bentley and Daryl, best buds for life.

I love having wonderful photos of me and Bentley.  They are a constant reminder of great memories and great companionship.
