We drove back from Bakersfield, and Bento is officially home! The drive back was uneventful. He slept almost the entire way, and he didn't have any accidents. Of course, as soon as he started to whine, we pulled over and let him out. Once we got home, he started to explore.
Aside from a few accidents (really need to get that Bissell Spotbot), totally our fault because we weren't paying attention, he's great at whining and looking at you in the face to show that he needs to go.
We gave him a bath, and he didn't like it at all. Afterwards, he just looked at us with a woebegone expression and turned his head away. I think that's his version of the cold (and wet) shoulder. He then promptly went to sleep. He sure sleeps a lot.
Bento is the best ever!!
