My Friend Benny

Dear Friends 
Today I want honor my friend 



BENNY THE FRENCH BULL DOG.

Benny (and Lily) and their Mom made me smile every day.
They loved, lived, played and fought the evil Cancer together.
And they taught me the meaning of Faith and Family.

Benny went to the Bridge yesterday....while cradled in the arms of his loving and devoted Mom

Run free and happy Benny...may you find
lots of fun hiking trails, doughnuts...and friends
Remember you were loved to pieces

  20. I just can't believes we lost another Most Special Blogville resident so soon. It's just too sad. This is a very beautiful tribute to a very beautiful soul. We will miss him so much but we imagine there's a big HUGE pawty going on over the Bridge today with all our furends we've had to say "see ya later" to recently.
