Default Re: Need help with Ben

My beautiful, kind, loyal Ben is gone. 😢

The vet said that it was time and family members said that I shouldn’t prolong his suffering.

Still never got an answer as to what was wrong with him.

Cannot believe it

I'm so very sorry for your loss of Ben. I rarely post here anymore as my diabetic girl has been gone 10 years, but saw this and had to reach out.
I'm truly sorry.

You did your best Vanessa for Ben and did all you could . Ben is free of this world and the limitations placed on him . He is running free and jumping high

Thank you all for the support you’ve given us.

It meant a lot to me to know I could seek advice here - it always gave us hope.

May God bless you all for taking the time to guide others.

I have uploaded here a photo we took on a happy Sunday - Ben was here begging me to take him out for a second walk.

That’s how I want to remember him.
