Default Bentley passed this afternoon

My heart is breaking as I write this. Usually I wouldn't disclose details but in this situation I feel maybe I could prevent another dog from suffering the same horrible death Bentley underwent. Bentley was a Yorkie because my parents became so attached they took him weekdays. This afternoon my nephew and I came to my moms house after the doctors. While I was in the kitchen I hear My mom scream when I looked outside Bentley had passed and was laying on his bed. His position was strange since he seemed to be playing but still. There were pieces of his bed all over. I frantically called the vet and she told me to take him in, when I went outside and tried to pick him up was when I realized what really happened to my poor baby. His head was stuck to the bed and was so confused while crying. Once I turned him I saw the strings from the bed around his neck tightly. He was playing and chewing on the bed, then the strings that came off of the bed strangled him. I'm surprised the neighbors didn't call the police because I broke down crying loudly. His hair is long so I couldn't tell before. What a horrible sight... He didn't deserve this, we all feel guilty because I never thought that was a risk. Anyone that has beds that the dogs chewed on made of cloth please throw them out!!! Any tips of safer beds would be greatly appreciated since all mine are the same. They are so small that if they turn in circles it could choke them. The vet said he is NOT the first dog she has seen die from this. At only 10 months he was still a baby, only god understands why things happen. My family is broken apart we are all so sad. I can accept his death but knowing that his last minutes were spent outside suffering and no one heard him or was there for him. I wrote him a letter to help myself cope, the shock was overwhelming but at least he knew he was and will always be loved deeply.

Here he was in August, sleeping.

I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to Bentley. I would have never thought beds could be dangerous, how awful!! It's always hard to lose a dog, but so shocking when still so young...
