A GRAND-DOG

Bye-bye Benny!  
You are invited 
to Evi's blog  over at Caught up to read her story about Benny. 

He was very fearful of people 

when he was adopted by our daughter Evi and her family.

On one of our visits

  we were thrilled when he warmed up to hubby - 

all because he loved the popcorn hubby was sneaking to him!

We will certainly miss him when we visit! 

The whole family,

especially the responsible caring of our grandson Josh,

gave him the best years of his life

and in return Benny taught us all more

compassion, sympathy, empathy,

love and respect for another one 

of God's beautiful creations.

We will remember him well!

So sad, Karin... It's difficult to lose a pet... When I lost my Cocker Spaniel (she lived for over 15 yrs)--it took me a long long time to get over her loss.

So sorry about Benny... But Evi and family must have given Benny a fabulous life... That is so special!!!! She will be remembered.

Hugs,
Betsy

Benny looks as if he was a very sweet, loving member of the family. I know you all will have great memories of him.

Oh! Karin, I am so sorry about the lose of your daughter's pup. It's hard losing animals...they become family and sometimes the best of friends.

Much Love, Lisa

Oh, so sad.

I'm sorry you've lost your little bitty blessing. My daughter just adopted our first grand-puppy - a chihuahua too. Our whole family is blessed by Lil Chompy. I hate the thought of missing him.

I love animals and hate to see them go. I'm sorry for Evi's loss. I know that God has often used my little pets to teach me significant lessons.
