Dogs and people are a natural combination. A love born in childhood can change a life forever.
My Walks with Bentley captures life lessons author D. C. Charles learned from her dog, Bentley, while on their walks. Bentley’s reverence for a neighborhood tree causes Charles to reflect on nature. When they take up temporary residence on a peninsula, Bentley makes friends, though he turns out not to be much of a beach bum. And from the time they board a plane for their move to France, Bentley helps smooth the transition by making friends and enjoying the city of Paris—well, except for the sidewalks—before moving to their new home in the countryside. And he learns French long before the author does!
My Walks with Bentley is a fun read. It reminds us to expand our perspectives. The world looks very different when one is closer to the ground, and we can learn from those more grounded.
