Happy Bennigan

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 is fine.

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.

 

Good Bye sweet boy...

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.

 

A new home?

Mom had a real serious talk with me tonight. She said she has found a good home for me. A furever home. A home where I will be loved and I will be safe. She said I will have a big yard and my Mama will be home with me all day like she is now. Mom said I am going to have a bath in the morning and go to my new home after noon. My people are coming to PetSmart to adopt me. She says I am going to be at my new home a week before they decide if I am the right pet for them, and if I am happy there. She said I get to choose. If I don't like it she will come get me quick and bring me home with my friends again. I am not going to have any friends in my new house. I will have friends but not living with me. I hope I am not bored. I get in trouble when I am bored. Mama asked me to promise her that I will not forget her and how much she loves me. That's silly. How could I do that? I am excited about my new home and think it is going to be so much fun to be an only dog getting all the attention. I love Mom and Dad but I do want my very own home. I'm gona try to be perfect.

 

I love my Mom.

I had a good day. I was a very good boy. Mom fed me in my crate and it was fine. I was nice to my friends too. I did have a little missunderstanding with Buddy but it was not my fault. I wanted to play and Buddy is a grouch. He didn't want to play and he got upset with me. It was not bad. I mean we didn't have a real fight or anything like that. He just growled at me. Mom fussed at him. I'm being so good. I am sitting in the chair with Mom while she fills in my diary. She gives me kisses and rubs my ears. I give her kisses back. She loves me a lot. She just told me I may have my furever home soon. Someone is very interested in adopting me and she is going to meet me soon and see if she likes me. She has a big fenced in yard and her husband is away a lot so she needs a good friend. I can be a good friend. I am a good friend. I hope the lady likes me. I want my own family.

 

I had a Time Out!

Mom is very upset with me. Yesterday she gave me a time out and again today. I was in the kitchen with the other dogs and she dropped some food. I wanted it but the others started to gobble it up. I got realy upset and I jumped on one of my friends. Mom put me in Time Out and fussed at me. She was real upset with me. She said I was "not nice" and a Bad Dog. :( I don't like being in my crate when my friends are out playing. Well it happened again this morning. I am in Time Out again. Mom says from now on I have to go into my crate before she gets our bowls ready so that doesn't happen again. I'm sorry but I like to eat........a lot. Mom said she is going to give me more food at meal times too. She said she loves me and wants to help me be a good friend to the other dogs. Maybe that will help me.

 

Saturday.

Man oh man, it rained last night! Yuk! I don't like rain well it's the mud I don't like. Mom let the Doxies out to play and Sweet Pea was not nice to me. She did Yap Yap and Snap at me. :( I was nice to her so that hurt my feelings. I'm just not going to be her friend. There.... Bella and Heidi are my good friends. Heidi is little so Mom says I got to be careful not to hurt her. She has a crippled leg so I am real sweet to her. Now Bella and I get going real good. She is rough and tough so we paly hard, then we take a nap together. Bella's my bestest friend in the whole world. Gotta go. Here comes Bella. Mom's taking pictures of us and laughing. Hummmmm

 

I love my Mom.

Mom is giving me medacine for the Kennel Cough I have. I got it from Katie or the Doxie girls. They all have it. Mom said she got it quick so I should be fine in a few days. She said "Bennigan my love, this means you have to stay here with me for at least 2 weeks more." I just looked at her and wondered if that was a good or bad thing. Then she hugged me tight and said "I get to keep you for 2 more weeks at least." She had a big smile on her face and so I smiled too. I gave her a big kiss too. She says she loves me and it is wonderful having me in her life. WOW! I feel special.

 

Mom is very upset!

Yesterday when I got my dinner I coughed. Mom thought it was cause I eat too fast. I coughed some more later and Mom got upset. See she thought maybe I have picked up Kennel Cough from the 3 new pups she got from the pound. They all 3 have it. Mom works real hard to keep all their things away from us and she has them in Quarantine so we never get to meet them or play with them. This morning I coughed again and she just paniced. She called the vet and ordered Rx med. for me. I kind of feel like I have something stuck in my throat sometimes but I feel OK. No green nose or fever or stuff. Oh well. Poor Mom, she feels real bad for me, like it's her fault I got the cough. I wish I could make her feel better cause I know she works so hard for us and she can't control everything. Poor mom.

 

I'm still here.

Yesterday Mom and Dad took me to PetSmart for Adoption Day. It was so exciting for me. I saw lots of dogs there. Big ones and little ones, long hair and short with some medium length coats. All the dogs were nice to me and the people gave me ear rubs and told Mom and Dad that I am handsome. Lots of people but nobody wanted to take me home with them. When time was up I came back here and took a nap. I was so tired. It's hard work being on show for people. Mom gave me a big kiss and told me she was glad nobody wanted to adopt me Sun. She said she loves me and my company is very special to her. AWwwww Mom. I gave her a kiss but she will have to let me go when my people come along. I want my own family with a big yard and some kids. For now I am OK and all in all I am a happy boy. I love my Mom and I like my friends here very much.
