BENNIE

FEBRUARY 27, 2000 -  OCTOBER 27, 2015

My good friend Betty had put together this collage of pictures several years ago and sent it to me yesterday.
 
 
There are some great pictures and memories in those pictures for sure.  I think the one where he crawled into the bag of laundry is my favourite.  I remember that day well.

These were taken last Spring – my little guy (just like his Mother) gets cold very easily….



But Mom was always there to take care of him…

 
 
He was the greatest travel companion I could ever ask for and no words can express how much I will miss him.

  6. Oh dear, I'm so heartbroken to hear about your gorgeous boy. He was one of the cutest doggies I knew (Polly agrees). I still remember visiting you in Q and the two doggies following each other around. I got that one pic of Bennie looking right at the camera...simply the cutest. My heart goes out to you. Our paw-friends take up such a big portion of our hearts, and leave such a big hole when they pass. So very sorry :(

  14. OH, I'm so so sorry for the loss of Bennie and for the sadness you are feeling! He was such a little cutie pie, and your mutual love of each other was very evident. I was extremely fond of Bennie myself, even though I never met him in person. He looks so much like my little Hanna, they could be siblings.

  15. I am so sorry for your loss. I loved to see all the happy, cute and adoreable pictures of Benny. He looked just like my Muffie. As it broke my heart to loose her, I am sure your heart aches as well. You made him happy and he knew he was loved. What more can anyone ask.

  30. They say loosing a dear dog is often worse than loosing a member of the family. For sure it is NOT any less sorrows and grief. Many of us have lost a long time dog friend and companion. So did we several times. We think of you, Sassie and hope you can find some consolation in the fact that you could give Bennie a very good life - the best indeed.

  31. "Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in the sky where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."

    Pick a star that you see from your home on wheels and name it after Bennie. When you go outside at night look for him and send him your love. He will be smiling down at you! So truly sorry for the passing of your best buddy.
