We Lost Benjamin
One of our trusty and lovely companions Benjamin went off to his Summerland on 23 January 2014.
As a puppy he jumped out of a car at 70 miles an hour when the tailgate came open unintentionally and he got up and jumped back in the car as if nothing had happened. We rushed straight to the vet of course and he was amazed to find hardly a scratch on him. However, that jump we believe, did him more harm than anyone imagined and only about 3 years later he started showing signs of arthritis.
Over the years the pain got worse and the medicine dosage increased and while he was still a young dog at heart, the disease was taking a great toll on him. He eventually decided he had come to end of days and stopped eating and drinking - we knew it was the end for him and its been a very sad time for us.
