Mourning The Loss Of Our Dear Dog!

Hi all or whom ever comes to read my blog! Not to many of you come to say HI....not sure why?
But anywho, I have had a really long day with 2 dentist appt. for the kids and 2 baseball games to attend! While at my first game of the evening my hubby called me to say.....Benson our dog died!
I thought how could that be? I was just home 30 mintutes ago!
Well it seems that I let the dog out at 11:30 am as I left to take the kids to the denist and pick up a few groceries.
We got home around 2:15 pm, ate our McyD's then unloaded the car!
I gave the kitchen a quick tidy up and did the dishes.
I looked out the back door and
 saw the dog laying under the picnic table "sleeping" and tossed him a piece of buttered toast one of the kiddos didn't eat from breakfast! Benson kept right on "sleeping" as the toast laid on the ground next to his back leg.
I said to myself, "Benson if you don't eat the bread the crows will get it".
Benson has always been kind of slow to get around.....its was his personality,so I did not think much of it.
I then quickly made brownies and tater-tot casserole a house favorite!
I forgot one of my boys was to bring snack for his off to the store I went again.
We all ate a quick dinner and left the house about 5:15pm for the baseball games.
Hubby got home around 5:50pm and found the dog not moving!

Hubby was in shock about the whole thing and called me while I was in the middle of watching my first ball game....I still had about 1 1/2 hour before I would be home!
I held off telling the kids until we were on our way home.

Well, my head hurts and my eyes are all puffy and wet with tears. Its time I scoot to bed!
You can read some other posts of our dear ole dog!

Hubby and Jacob made a wooden box and dug a large hole for our Dear Benson.
We will have a small family ceremony with songs and prayers Saturday afternoon for our sweet dog.

Peace and Love


  1. Aww I'm sorry! It's so hard to loose pets :(

  2. Georgiann,
    Sorry I haven't been by lately. So much going on--sad excuse, I know.

    Sorry to hear about your doggy Benson. Pets seem so much like a part of the family. It really can hurt when they pass on. :-( It's good that there wasn't a lot of pain and drama though!! Just a peaceful passing of old age.

    Wishing you peace and love!!


  3. Georgiann,

    I'm so sorry to hear of your family's loss! I remember all too clearly how painful it is to lose a dear furry friend.

    As for comments, I'm so sorry I don't take the time to jot you a note more often! I do visit your blog - nearly daily - but am often in a hurry. I'll try to be more considerate! :)



I read all my comments and love to know people are out there....I enjoy making new blog friends!
Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
