   Leave a bone for Benny

Benny Boo, Doodlebug, with my cat, Spirit, we are Benny and the Jet, BENJAMIN!

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

August 4th 2006

Eating and playing with his Dachshund brother, Kaspar; and his cat brother, Spirit, and cat sisters, Ling Ling, Yum Yum, and Windsong

Benny does not like strange dogs. Getting his toenails cut, getting his ears cleaned, getting his teeth brushed, loud noises like knocking, trucks, motorcycles, firecrackers

Favorite Toy:
He likes soft toys with squeakers, but I had to take them away to keep him from getting choked on the stuffing and the squeakers.

Favorite Food:
Benny is now eating Duck and Potato canned food. After bladder surgery our vet put him on special dry food, but he was also allergic to it.

Favorite Walk:
At his stepsister's house, Dot Dot, where he can run around off leash.

Best Tricks:
Benny doesn't do tricks, but he does his basic commands very well. He knows sit, down, leave it, take it, stay, drop it, and has a fairly large vocabulary.

Arrival Story:
My Dachshund of twelve years crossed the Rainbow Bridge in June 2006. To ease my heartbreak, my brother bought Benny for me.

Benny is the sixth Dachshund I have had in mylifetime. He is my buddy, my best friend, my closest companion.

I've been on a diet for the past several months. Vet ordered, and Mommy carried out! As you can guess, I've not been very happy about this.

When my weight dropped from 23 to 17 pounds recently, I received my very first treat from my vet! Mommy took Kaspar and me to the local drive-in for ice cream and an animal cookie to celebrate. I guess it will be a long time before we get to do that again.

DOXIES LOVE TO EAT, and that's all I have to say about that.

A Beautiful Poem I Wanted to Share

With shining eyes and lifted nose,
A million dogs lined up in rows
And stood before the throne of God,
While He, with just a smiling nod,
Bade all the household pets sit down
Upon their haunches on the ground.
Or should I say, upon the sky,
For they were spirits. As for why
God wanted dogs, that seemed to be
Much more than anyone could see
Each ear upon each spirit head
Was up to hear each word He said.
“You’ve all led lives untouched by greed,
And love and honor seemed your creed.
So, now, because of that, you’ve come
To dwell with Me in this, your home.
You’ll not have any crowns to wear,
But you’ll have bones and meat to spare,
And friendly fires ‘round which to sleep,
And too, some spirit fleas to keep
You busy when you’ve naught to do
But haunt the homes of masters who
You loved in other happier days
When once you walked in earthly ways.”
They all lay down just where they sat,
While God gave each a loving pat.
And as He walked between the rows,
They each rubbed their cold friendly nose
Against His robe as he passed by
And strolled on down the windy sky.

My Latest Shredding Episodes/As Reported to My Bestest- Shredding Buddy Patrick Kitty

Well, Patrick, I really did it this time. It was bad enough when I ate Ling Ling's Easter bonnet. Mommy is really upset this time!

I chewed up my brand new embroidered collar! It had my name on it with my phone number. And it matched my new hunter green winter coat.

After being scolded (Mommy never gets very mad at me) you would have thought I would have learned my lesson...NOT!!! The very next day I removed from her neck and chewed up Ling Ling's embroidered collar!

Mommy says I owe her $36.00. Now, I ask you Patrick, where am I supposed to get $36.00? I think I know what a dollar is, because about a week ago I found a funny looking piece of green paper. Oh My!!! I thought Mommy was going to blow a gasket when she found little green pieces of a dead President all over the living room floor!

I think I'm in the doghouse, but I don't have a doghouse!

That's the latest Patrick, my bestest shredding buddy ever!
