I have had a horrid week. My brother in love dog, Benson, died yesterday just short of his 12th birthday.
Benson was a wonderful dog. I know that all pets are wonderful - they really are - but Benson was special. He suffered from a lot of illnesses from birth and had many operations, took daily medication and had lots of difficulties to overcome.
Despite all that Benson never let anything get him down. He had the nicest most placid kindest and loving personality of any person or animal that I have ever met. I realise that I sound biased, and I am!, but his doggy sister, although a wonderful dog, doesn't have the things that Benson had so I don't think I am overstating this.
We will all miss Benson more than I can describe to you. Benson just knew. He knew everything. I think because of his own difficulties he could somehow empathise in a doggy way with others difficulties. I learned a lot about keeping going from Benson, and trust me, that is something that I need to do sometimes.
Benson wasn't my own dog, but he was as close as he could have been to being mine.
There have been other problems too this week with issues related to Man who is being less than pleasant about us trying to help him. That is all quite upsetting.
Added to that I have been having horrid dreams and much broken sleep as well.
So sorry that I haven't been round visiting or blogging properly. I have noticed that there has been a lot less traffic coming by here recently so I do apologise for not getting round if that is the reason you haven't stopped by here. Or perhaps you are just busy with summery things and your own life. Or it could be that I have just been a bit boring!
Anyway, I am sorry that I haven't been by. Give me a few days, it is our bank holiday weekend this weekend - long weekend - so after that I hope to be a bit more refreshed and will be round visiting even if I am not up to much blogging for a little bit.
Benson, you won't read my blog, you didn't even know it existed, but I love you and will miss more than I can say. I will be waiting to see you again one day. Thank you for loving us all so much.
I hope you all have a good weekend.
Go and love on your pets!
