Because of Ethan, Bentley prefers to be upstairs only when the children are distracted or asleep. Otherwise he is hiding under a piece of furniture waiting patiently for them to JUST GO AWAY! He is very tolerable of the boys to a point, then he runs for the hills, especially if he is being poked and gouged by golf clubs from the front and back of the couch. You will only see his underbelly when there is no one around who he thinks might eviscerate him on the spot. Such a rough life for a 15lb fur ball.
