From Fabienne, on October 1st
We had to let you go this morning, my dearest Ben, you couldn't go on anymore, you
had just turned 15 years old...
You had had Leishmaniosis since you were one year old, a heart problem, but such
a strong will to live, to lead, you were stronger than anybody else..
My beloved gentle sweetheart...
Our years together went by so quickly, you were our most unique, our great and
special Alfa for all those years... a born leader...
How many foster dogs were given a calm mood by you, how many were lead by you,
unaccountably, you were such a precious sweetheart.
We understood each other with a simple look in the eye. Words were not necessary,
you were our leader, such a good soul, lovely Ben.... always sincere and fair to
everybody, whoever came into fostercare, you always managed everthing, so
We went through so much, together, always by my side, in your own simple humble
ways. Your life started so sadly in the hands of a drug dealer, we saved you from
there and you never left us again, it was love at first sight... it is so empty without
you Ben, we miss you so much, life is so different without you...
I am so proud of you, that you were with us for so many years, a gift from heaven
that will always be with us.
You were an example for so many, so beloved and now so far away... but forever in
our hearts. Rest in peace my beloved bear... a special place in our hearts...
