Help! Is it me or my Yorkie Bentley?
(Chippewa Falls, WI)
Bentley is 7 months old. We have had him for about four months. This is our first Yorkie and we have no one to ask if he is a normal Yorkie or not? We have had Old English Mastiffs, Airdales, and a Wired Haired Fox, so we know terries can be a hand full. But this beautiful little six pound puppy is the hardest one ever. He is so destructive. He has chewed furniture all over the house, tears about any and all objects he can sneak in and get. I can't leave him alone for even a minute! When I am in the room with him, he knows not to do these things, the second I am gone, he does it!!
Perhaps if we were younger, this would be cute or funny, but we are retired and just can't keep up! To be honest, I am thinking of looking for someone who would love him as much as I do, and letting them have him. This makes me cry each time I think of it. But, it might be the best thing for both of us???
Any thoughts? Have any of you felt this way? What did you do?
