Bentley, the dog whose owner Dallas nurse Nina Pham was recently hospitalized for showing symptoms of Ebola, has remained upbeat during his time in quarantine. Caretakers played fetch with Bentley on Friday, whose enthusiasm for the ball was not diminished by his surroundings. The dog was moved Monday to the former residence of the executive officer at the decommissioned Hensley Field, which is owned by the city, for monitoring.

Owner nurse Pham was reportedly in fair condition on Friday after flying from a Dallas hospital to a National Institutes of Health isolation unit in Bethesda, M.d.
