Benny

Our dog, Benny, has been with us since just two years after we got married.  We adopted him the day after we bought our first house.  He was there as we moved in…

…(don’t worry, we replaced that carpet).  He was there as we remodeled…

He was there for Christmas…

And he was there this morning…

…but now he is not.  Today we had to make the difficult decision to have Benny put to sleep.  It will take a long time to get used to life without him.

Rest in peace, Benny.

Thank you for all your sweet words in my darkness, I know that it is because all you have walked through that you can be such a comfort. Such a blessing, old friend!

Sorry to read about this now, let's hope for a brighter 2012.

How did I miss this post? What a sweet, sweet post- I love all the pictures of him in it...how you recapped everything he was there for. It still seems weird to go to your house without Benny there...and I only knew him a short time. Hope it's easier now. :)
