no buddy had "C" ....cancer.
Since he miraculously made it through a critical night
"my miracle boy" fought for the next four months.
It was the hardest four months of our lives.

Murray Muffin sent us 
Fight Like A Frenchie bandanas.
Murray is still Fighting today.

  6. I don't see a link to donate via Team Frenchie? All I see is the Indianapolis Cancer Walk. Am I looking in the wrong place?

    That's what my mum says.

  14. Benny definitely fought the good fight. He did it like a Frenchie! I know how badly it still must hurt.

  15. Benny put up a good fight, but the big C is almost unbeatable. Mom lost her dog Trine almost 11 yrs ago. Fine one day, gone a week later, she is still having trouble getting over it. Continue your fight for Benny!
