Benny loved his pack of people more than anything . . . even more than strutting at a dog park or convincing you to throw him carrots. His sharp mind allowed him to communicate in intricate ways and his playful charm brought us many laughs. He was happy to spend his days guarding by Mom’s desk while she worked, then following her room to room. If she was gone even a few minutes, his whole-body tail-wag and dancing matched the grandest reunion. Never once begging until his boy, Brayden, became a messy toddler, he then learned the important role a dog has in waiting under the table to lap up every tiny dropped crumb (and licking fingers and baby faces until spotless). Benny was so proud to run through mole-filled fields with Brayden as “his boy” grew older. He taught us that a “clean enough house” was worth the joy of his fiercely loyal companionship. He left his muddy footprints all over the carpet and deep in our hearts. We will love you forever, Benny.
