Our brave boy is Mr. Bentley. His Instagram account, @mrbentley_thedog
, shows him dressed up for holidays, looking cool in mirrored sunglasses, and protecting his floppy little ears with a dog-sized headset as he looks out over his world through the bubble of a Robinson R44 helicopter, flown by his good buddy, Bradley Friesen. He clearly loves airtime, but flying isn’t Mr. Bentley’s only adventure. Like any good action hero, he enjoys snowboarding, kayaking, paddleboarding, and riding in the sidecar of a motorcycle, all of which came as a bit of a surprise to his owner, Alycia Foy. “He’s my first dog, and I was pretty set on an English bulldog, because I’d always heard they were lazy!” She and Friesen both laugh, and I imagine I hear Mr. Bentley snort in the background too. Bulldogs aren’t lazy, they’re just bored doing normal dog stuff when they could be flying.
