Benny the Bipolar Puppy  ~ Page 6 ~


Despite the worries and fears of Mr. and Mrs. Dalmay, the doctor did not seem to take it too seriously.  Even after Mrs. Dalmay told him there was a history of bipolar disorder in her family and of her fears that Benny had inherited the illness, the doctor was unconcerned and felt Benny was far too young to be diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.  The Dalmays left, still not convinced.  In the next weeks things continued to get worse.

When Benny was awake he was often mischievous and getting into trouble  with his parents, his teachers and  his friends

More and more often Benny would be sleeping while the other puppies were around looking to play.  It was so obvious that Benny was sick.

He would run off with a friend and would be gone for hours.  He refused to tell his parents where he was or what he was doing.
