  20. All of that is so thoughtful and very heartwarming. We can understand how hard it was to change your header. I decided to keep Abby as our muse even as she blogs from the Bridge.

  37. Andrea~ I just want to say how sorry I am... even though that seems so inadequate right now. I haven't left any comments since Benny passed because... well, I couldn't see to type through the tears. My Lily and I have been sending healing vibes and prayers your way. Please know that if we could, we would wrap you and Lily up in a big group hug. XOXOXO Sleep tight, Benny, you will live in our hearts forever.

  41. How sweet of you to thank us... it was very sad to see Benny disappear from the little red sports car. Who's Lily going to have ask for directions???

    The outpouring of love and support is no surprise to us at all. Benny & Lily are what the blogosphere is all about. You've made us smile, giggle and snicker since the first time we visited.

    Kitty kisses and purrs to you.
    love,

  42. Our hearts go out to you! When Blueberry passed away suddenly this summer (and Lilac a few years ago), there were so many people who were unexpectedly kind to us through it all that we felt overwhelmed. It's just a lot to take in while you're trying to deal with your own grief, too. I felt like I was letting a lot of people down in a way, by letting Lilac go. But, I learned to accept grace from others and also that other people reached out to us to help comfort themselves over the loss. There are many dogs that I've met through blogging that I just adore, and I am heartbroken when they pass along as if one of my own has left me. Please know that we are thinking of you, and while we may not know exactly how you feel, we understand the pain of loss and wish for good things for you in the future. Benny was a special guy and a lot of people adored him!

  43. Benny was loved by everyone whether they knew him for a day or a year - he was a hero and everybody loves a hero (and NEEDS a hero). He touched so many people with his story and we know how hard it's been for you - his family - to adjust to life without him. The outpouring of love you're feeling is because we ALL lost Benny in one way or another and we are keeping the "love" coming to let you know that like Benny over the Bridge, that love goes on and on and on forever. It's so wonderful that tributes to Benny keep coming to you - part of his legacy I think....

    Hugs to Lily and all of you.......
    Sammy and his Mom

  48. Oh my, I am so sorry to hear that you lost your dear Benny. I had been following the antics of Benny and Lily for a long time, but have been away from blogger since the summer so I was out of the loop. Love to you and Lily, I know you must miss him terribly.
