My Benny List & Hugs and Kisses Pawrty

Since being diagnosed with liver cancer....
I've been thinkin....

Should I have a bucket list?
I am going to call it Benny's List instead.

I am overall one happy dude/Chick Magnet.
Life  is good

I am not sure I can ask for much more.
I have a great life
I have #1 Blogville and Facebook friends.
My family rocks

I get hugs and kisses like crazy.
My doctor is awesome, plus she is blonde, BOL.
I have the bestest friends.
All my friends got my back.

I Will Fight Like A Frenchie

So my list........
1. Go camping
2. Go to the Grand Canyon.
 The Canyon is the place I first met my mom when she picked me up
3. Go for a ride on a kayak
4.and on
September 6, I want every buddy to post themselves getting hugs and/or kisses from their mom, pops or human 
so we could all have a virtual hug pawrty since we can't all hug in the person.

What do you think?

Thank you all friends...
your love, support and words, keep me going
Benny (& Lily)

ALL who leaves a comment has a chance to win a prize

  3. Hey Benny!
    Wow, what a super list! I'd take you for a ride in my canoe anytime you want. It's a ton of fun and we'd have an adventure fur sure. Love your Hugs/Kisses day and I'm so ready for that!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Furiend

  4. Fantastic list Benny!!

    I love the Grand Canyon idea!

    Your mom might need buckets and buckets of tissues though. You know how you say she blubs on your head now and again, imagine going back to the place where she first met you? ;-)

    You know if you have a virtual party then you should have party food - and that doesn't have to be virtual, it can be real!!! And ice-cream is something your mom and you and Lily and your friends could have!

    oh and maybe for your party we all should wear our 'FLAF' bandanas that Murrays mom made? and we could send you the photos! with a note saying Benny's virtual party!

  5. That's a grreat list!! We'll definitely help out with #4. Kayaking sounds fun too!

  6. Awesome idea Benny and love the bandana wearing too Michele. I will try and get Mr. Wiggleworm aka Mozart to sit still for the bandana and def. get hug and kisses pixs. :-)

  7. Sending you Lots of Golden Kisses, Hugs and Sweet Golden SMILES :-) :-) Lots of Golden LOVE n Woofs, Sugar

  8. Awwwww, Benny that is such a beautiful list — most especially that last part, about the hug pawrty. You made my eyes all wet, you sweet boy.

  9. Sounds Great I for one am Up for that,xx Speedy

  10. P.S.Your list is Awesome,and you are a hero to all who know of you!xx Speedy

  11. Oh Benny, your list is perfect! I wish I could take you camping with me...I love camping and we are going next weekend. Maybe I can bring a flat Benny though I don't think that would quite be the same.

  48. Great list Benny AND we will be more than happy to post a photo of some hugging and kissing here in my house on September 6th! I think a LUV par-tay is a great idea - there's lots of love in blogville to go around and a whole lot of it is being sent your way Benny - believe me!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  49. Nice list. I started one but never finished it...better get my paws moving! That hug day is a fun idea :)

  50. I love your list Benny! That's a great idea, I can't believe I've never thought of it. I think we'll start one too. Thanks for stopping by Coffee With A Canine and reading our interview! We'll be sure to post our hug party pics next week :)

  51. First of all, I am in denial that you need to start thinking of a bucket list. You are going to be fine, Benny! Just call it a "Things I Want to Do For The Heck of It" list. Okay? I love the idea of a virtual hug and kisses day! Very fun idea!

  52. That is a great list, Benny :) Though I think that last one will be a miracle for me. Mum will have to get someone with a fast shutter speed if that's to be achieved this end!! MOL

  53. Hi Benny and Lily! I hope it's ok, but we are sharing your story, because we want to make sure you make it into the calendar. Benny's story has touched our mom's heart, as she lost her first collie, Lad, to cancer. We think you are one brave and handsome boy, and we hope you many more years with your mom and your sister Lily!

    The collies

  54. Here's a Big Hug for you Benny.
