Benny (in new shirt) and Odie (in birthday suit)

Benny - the most lovable little doggie I've ever known. Benny is all wiggles from head to toe.

Benny never barks.

Benny's motto is, "Love food, never argue, pee where you feel like it."

Benny's mission in life is to give love lavishly.

Sadly, Benny has been feeling poorly lately and had to stay overnight at the Animal Hospital. He's ten years old and he's developed some of those same conditions that plague many middle aged people.

We all know that dogs and cats age faster than we do, but the knowing doesn't make it any easier to deal with. We're all very sad here, but hoping he makes a full recovery soon.

In the meantime, some quotable quotes, and pictures:

Benny is my "nephew" dog, Odie's cousin

" No Matter how little money and how few possessions
you own, having a dog makes you rich."
Louis Sabin
All About Dogs As Pets

Benny & His Boy

"There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy
licking your face."

Bern Williams

"Plays well with cats."
Benny's a bit overweight because he's such an accomplished begger. When he gets over this crisis I suppose he'll be dieting. I feel for ya, Benny!

Great photos and I wish Benny well! (even though dogs don't work in my world)
