For Benny (and Lily)



Words are especially hard for us to find when it comes to Benny's crossing.  He fought the good fight, he fought like a Frenchie, he was just so very strong.  He fell ill at the same time as our Thunder, both falling ill so suddenly and so young, both such sweet boys, and now both together forever free of pain and sickness along with so many of all of our furry loved ones.


Our hearts go out to Lily and her Mom and all of her family.  We have no words, just lots of hugs and tears.  Please send some tender thoughts to them - we know how much they need them now.

Hugs and Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning, and Mom too

Our hearts are breaking once again. Benny taught us many things in life, but we will always remember him for his courage and strength.

Oh how we loved Benny. He was a super hero that fought so so hard and still made us laugh at the same time. I will miss him very much and just want to cuddle with Lily and hug his mom.
Blessings,

I'm still aching from my Jake's sudden departure last month and I just want to embrace dear Lily and her family and share the tears and love.

Too too sad. We can only hope there will be a big meet-up at the Bridge with all our pups telling stories about us!

When we heard the sad news... we instantly thought of THUNDER being right there to Greet our Buddy.
Blogville is one hurting place right now. But we KNOW we will all be together again... running FREE and FAST.

We are heartbroken here as well....Benny was an inspiration to humans and animals who fight to stay together through the best and worst of times. We didn't know Benny long - just a matter of months - but we felt like we lost a family member....he was everybody's little champion and now he's everybody's little angel.

So sad that Benny had to run off to the bridge. This has been a horrible past several month with many of our dear friends running off. My heart is heavy and I am sorry for the families that have had the loss of a loved one.
