Arrival Story: We had just gotten rid of our cat and had never had a dog before. So Mom and I went to the pound to pick out a dog, and they had 2 little puppies that were about 2 months old. Ben was merle colored and his brother was black and white. I knew I wanted the puppy with all the colors! We took him home and I wanted to name him either Ben or Mike, and I'm not sure why. So we settled on Ben.
Bio: Ben was my first dog and he had to be put to sleep in April of 2005 at 9 years old. He had severe hip and back pain as well as a fungus in his lungs. I miss him very much now and I think about him a lot. But having him opened my eyes to what owning a dog is like and I will never be without one now. Thank you, Ben. We miss you!
