This family’s puppy love for Bentley seriously goes the distance after they took him on cross-country road trip and snapped pics of him at every state line. 

There he is in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida!

His owners say he always rides shotgun so he can take in the view while mom is at the wheel.

But the real fun begins when the whole gang arrives. They celebrated Bentley's 12th birthday in front of the Alamo and he definitely looks happiest in his home state of Texas. 

In a blog post on Love What Matters, Bentley's human sister Lexee Leach explains how he came to be such an explorer. "Bentley used to have a brother named Max... Once Max passed away, my mom did not want Bentley to feel lonely, so she started taking him EVERYWHERE! He goes to the grocery store, my brother’s speech and debate tournaments (which is where they were going in the pictures), and anywhere else their travels may take them! He has a puppy purse that he sits in on short trips, and a doggy stroller for long walks."

So where to next, Bentley? This is one pup who is always ready to ride!
