  37. Mom Kim here
    DearAndrea and Lily - when I first got online at home last night and saw the news on Frankie and Ernie's blog I was so shocked. Even this morning it is still difficult to comprehend and that is for me so I can imagine how this must be a most difficult time for you. Benny was such a fighter and always so full of life. We at Team Beaglebratz wish to express our utmost deep sympathy for your loss.
    DearBenny - Run and romp forever pain-free over the Rainbow Bridge.

  38. Everyone at my house is broken hearted that Benny had to go to the Bridge. He was an inspiration to all of us throughout Blogville and he will be so, so missed. We are thinking of all of you who loved Benny the most and are sending you lotsa love and hugs (and brindle kisses) during this sad, sad time.

    Gentle wiggles & wags,

  39. Every single time we hear about a loss a little piece of our heart breaks too. I know all too well the heartache and sadness that is filling your soul and body. I wish that there were words of comfort I could offer that would help in any way to take some of the numbness, the sadness, the aching away, but I know there is not. All I can say is how very sorry I am over your loss and the one thing that is true is the love that was shared with Benny will sustain you and warm your soul and heart again in time. I won't try to tell you that time heals all wounds because I don't believe it does, what it does do is erase the hard jagged edges off the pain and sorrow. I will offer one piece of advise if I may and that is be gentle with yourself, you may find that you want answers or feel blame in some way, you did everything right, you loved Benny and gave him great comfort and care. This may seem like it's an ending but it is only the beginning of a new path, a new journey you are on with Benny. Know he is with you always where it matters most -- in your heart and your spirit.

    Many blessing of peace and healing to you and your family.
    *hugs*

    and he shall make the face of heaven so fine
    that all the world will be in love with night,
    and pay no worship to the garish sun.

    You are our shining star now Benny, and we will
    always love you and miss you.

  72. Just wanted to say how sorry we are to hear about Benny! Can't imagine how difficult it must be for you - although it is wonderful that he is at peace now, after his brave battle, Although we had only started to follow your blog for a little while - and only got to know Benny for a very short time- we already feel the hole he left behind., What a wonderful, special dog he was.

  80. I'm so sorry for your loss. He was way too young. Cancer effing sucks. It took my girl who was only 2 1/2. It does not fight fair. Benny gave it his all. He was lucky to have you, as you were to have him. He's your special angel now. Look for the signs that he got "there" okay. Hang in there. Thinking of you at this oh-so-difficult time.

  87. Every morning - Two French Bulldogs was opened first to see what was going on with Benny and Lily. I've watched Benny fight like a frenchie with poise and charisma. I've watched Nurse Lily stand by her chubby's side. And I've seen momma take care of the two with love and strength as only a mother can do. I know Benny is running free now at the bridge with my Lucy, Macchi and Norm - all without pain and without illness and without age. My thoughts are with you Andrea and Lily at this very difficult time.

I know your pain too well and I am extending a huge hug and all of my thoughts to you. Benny was a wonderful part of the family and I know what an adjustment this will be. You have a huge support system that is here to stand by your side and Lily's side and we will be thinking of you lots and lots. Our deepest condolences :-( xo Katie and Coccolino

  96. I am finding myself to be utterly speechless. Benny was one of a kind, and he was so lucky to be loved so deeply and so completely. Through your tears, I'm sure that you know how lucky you were to have such a sweet sweet boy in your life. Please give Lily a kiss from me, and take care of yourselves. Breath and put one foot in front of the other. That's all that you can ask of yourself at first.

    Run free, sweet Benny. We love you.

    ReplyDelete
  97. The best little frenchie in the world. Tears are streaming down my cheeks. We were speechless for a while, but realize now that he can look over his family until it is time to meet again. Lily and Momma took such good care of him that he will return the favor from the bridge. We are sending you lots of love, hugs and my furry butts send lots of butt sniffs and face licks and they also offer you a heart shaped band-aid for the large hole that is in your heart right now.

  126. I left you a comment on Facebook yesterday when I heard the most awful news. Benny touched THOUSANDS of us more than you will ever know. Through your words and humor you "humanized" him for us and made it as if we knew him. That is what hurts so much. He is a beloved part of this community and will forever be missed. I am holding you all in my heart. Saying I am sorry doesn't begin to convey my feelings. Much love.

  127. I feel for you and send my condolences. I remember reading the blog posts of Benny's visits to the vet and the sweet pictures of him and Lily. Please send her my love too, I hope she stays strong.

    I shared with Pip and Gracie Lynn a dream that I had during the time of their passing. Two of my dogs from my childhood and teenage years came to me in a dream. They led me through dark halls filled with many dogs and when we got outside, all of the dogs ran towards the grass and to other dogs that were already there. When I woke the next morning, I heard the news of Gracie Lynn and Pip passing away and I remembered how I comforted the dogs as we waited to reach the other side. I'm sure that Pip and Gracie were in those halls with me and the rest of the dogs.

    After having that dream, I decided to host a blog event on October 30 titled, "To My Angel(s)" which is dedicated to our animal companions that have passed. If you'd like to participate and write one for Benny, you are more than welcomed to. Here is the information on the event in case you're interested: http://vegcourtesy.blogspot.com/2013/10/animal-loverscompanions-please-read.html

    I'll keep Benny close to my heart and in my prayers along with Pip, Gracie Lynn, and ,my two dogs, Oso and Estrella.<3

  142. We are so very, very sorry... We know how special your Benny was to you and to all of your friends and readers. He brightened our days with just a glimpse of a photo or a silly, funny comment. We will miss him so much.

    We hope our hugs and purrs and prayers help just a teensy bit. But we know what it's like when your heart is in pieces.

    It feels so hard to put words together just now because we really can't get over this. Benny was an amazing dog, he brightened our lives and touched our hearts and we will really really miss him. I'm sure he'll have a great time over the bridge with Mr Pip, one day we'll all get to meet up with him again, and join in with his fun!
    I'm so sorry, we hope you feel fine again soon,
