I've not been here for far too long, and I'll post about that soon, but Benny has had some sort of degenerative muscle wastage. The process has become too aggressive for treatment and we have made the hard decision to send him home before it gets too bad, and we lose completely the spunky, fabulous hound we know and adore.


Benny is getting his wings tomorrow (Friday) morning. Please contact your bridge angels and ask them to prepare for a cheeky, handsome and affectionate new member and show him the ropes till I get there to see him again.


Won't post again till after, but any kind thoughts would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, Benny will be in very good company. Not to worry; he won't be alone. I am so sorry that he has to leave you.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I've had a long-distance crush on that sweet boy since you brought him home! I'm so glad he was so loved. Sending hugs to all of you.

Oh my goodness, I was just thinking about you this week and wondering where you've been. I am so sorry it is Benny's time but what a grand gift you gave him when he needed a lifeline. Please give that good sweet boy a big hug from me. Seamie (and nine other campers) will be there to welcome Benny home. Peaceful crossing for you Benny. :heart Fiona, I'm so sorry :grouphug

Oh no, I'm so sorry. We've had to say goodbye to 4 now, and had to make that tough call for 3 of them. I know it's so much harder when you still see some sparkle left in them, I'm just so sorry. I hope his passing is peaceful and uneventful. I've notified my 4 to be on the lookout for him. :grouphug
