Sun. 5/4/08 Bennigan and his family came to visit us at PetSmart. He gave his foster Dad and kiss and a hello and got a pat and ear rub from him. Then he came to me and gave me a big kiss on my face! He wiggled all over and his eyes said " I am so happy Mom. I have a wonderful family of my own. My Dad plays in the big yard with me. MySissy plays with me, the cats even like me. Well 2 of them like me. One ran away. My Mommie loves me so much. It was my new Dad that wanted me. He said he thought I was so awesome he had to have me. But it's me and Mommie that are the real close pair. She loves for me to follow her around the house. She looks for me if I am not under her feet. She loves me very much. I get to sleep in the people bed! I love that and I am very good. I sleep all night. I'm happy Mom. You can stop worring about me. I love you but I love my Mommie a lot too." His eyes said all that and more. He was excited and happy and it made me so happy to see him like that. He is such a handsome dog. His coat shines like glass and his body is perfect. He looks like a champion and to me he is. I'll see him again some times and look forward to hearing how much he has filled the lives of this very nice young couple.

Bennigan's Dad came to finish up the paper work for his adoption. He said they really like him. He has fit right in to their home. He is even getting along with the oldest cat. The one I was so concerned about. He and this cat follow each other around in the house. His new Rottie sister is OK too. He has introduced himself to all and they must be well adjusted because they are all OK with him. His Mom didn't come today. She was home in bed, not feeling well. She said Bennigan stayed with her all day to "take care" of her. He is a good TV buddy to his new Dad too. They are happy with him and I am going to "Let Go" now. No more worring, no more fears. He is loved, he is home now. I must help Rose, Katie, Sweet Pea and Lilli find their furever homes just as perfect as Bennigan has. Be happy Bennigan. I love you and will not forget you.

The home I had found for Bennigan did not work out. Because he is so rough and strong I felt it best he not go to a home with a baby who would be crawling on the floor. He does not know what a baby is, and it just did not feel safe for the baby to me, for him to go there. I loved that the Mom is home but I would not want Bennigan to hurt the baby by being the rough, strong Puppy that he is.
Yesterday I took Bennigan to his new people. His Mom is a nurse. She is very sweet and is quite knowledgable with canine behavior. She and Bennigan's new Dad have a Rottie girl who is 6 yrs old and 3 cats. I talked to his new Mom today and she said he is doing fine. He is puzzled by the cats. I don't think he knows what they are. He was a little rough with his new sister so she let him knw she didn't like it and he has been a gentleman since then. He slept in the bed with them this am after he went out to potty and stayed in bed till 8:30! That made me feel so happy. He had an accident in the house. I was shocked but his Mom said she expected it because he was excited and trying to take in all his new surroundings. They like him and I am thinking it will work out for him. We will have to see I guess. They work and so he will be in a very large crate for 8 hrs a day. That makes me feel bad for him but he does like to sleep. If they do take him walking and play with him when they get home it will be OK I think. When they are sure he will not try to dig under the fence they can leave him in his pretty and large back yard. He will have a big covered patio to sleep under and to cover him if it rains. I guess I'm just being a Mama. I want everything to be absolutely perfect for him. I know they will be good to him or I would never.....never have let him go with them. I just have to "let go". I will keep in touch with them and see how he is doing. I will see them at PetSmart tomorrow while we are there for adoption day. They have to come finish his paper work. I hope they bring him with them. I want to see him....... Even though he was a real hand full for me. It's like when I was teaching I guess. The child that seemed to give the most trouble was always the one I missed most. I love you Bennigan and want you to be happy.
