All our puds are precious, but dear Ben was especially so. He arrived, a bit wobbly from a recent stroke, but he was determined. He rallied, he smiled, he walked, he loved. The wonderful Borderline Collie group had stepped in to help this abandoned soul, and we were delighted to have room at the time to take him. He has taught us a lot. Yes, about collies, but about compassion, resolve and enjoying what you have. We will miss you dear friend. Your heart was so so weak at the end, you had no strength or immune system left to fight. Your last breath, a deep and fulfilled sigh. Bless you; be at peace, know how much you were loved by many xxxx
