"I had this deep desire for this Benjamina tree."
“I’ve got to tell you this story! There’s a big nursery close to the university in Seattle. Lots of greenhouses and beautiful, beautiful plants. I used to go there and drool at all the plants. Well, on this occasion- just before I left for Utah- I got this urge. ‘I want a tree,’ I said to myself. And this thing was eight feet tall! All I had was a Volkswagen with a sunroof. I walked in the side entrance if this place where this beautiful benjamina was and I picked it up. It was heavy ad bulky. Anyway, I got it and started walking. I got to my car. I lifted it up and down through the sunroof. There’s a good five feet sticking out the top! I calmly walked around, got in the car, and took off. I don’t know what would have happened if somebody would’ve stopped me and asked me, ‘sir, just what do you have in mind here?’

I just had to draw that image I had in my mind of ole bundy driving down the road with a tree in his Volkswagen bug!!!!
The dogs name was Endal….”Over the years, Endal has learned to pull the plug out of the bath before going for help if Allen falls unconscious whilst bathing, and is able to put Allen in the recovery position, hit the emergency button on the telephone and summon help … Endal has learned how to use ATMs as well as Chip and pin machines, as well as helping out with shopping, opening train doors, operating lifts, unloading the washing machine and more typical doggie skills like getting the paper.”
Parton states that Endal’s ability to comprehend his wishes and needs showed when they first met, and was responsible for helping him recover from the initial deep depression and trauma caused by his disability.
Endal came again to national attention in a 2001 incident, when Allen was knocked out of his wheelchair by a passing car. Endal pulled Allen, who was unconscious, into the recovery position, retrieved his mobile phone from beneath the car, fetched a blanket and covered him, barked at nearby dwellings for assistance, and then ran to a nearby hotel to obtain help.
