Benny was my best friend i spent 9 years of my life with him. My parents told me when they brought me home from the hospital benny would lay on the bed by my crib and watch me for hours, he was always patient of me as toddler. He was a birthday present for my dad from my mom.

Benny spent the last year of his life sick because he tested positive for Lyme and the vet gave him the vaccine anyways. I remember my dad playing fetch with him in the yard and when Benny jumped up to get the ball he had a seziure. I also remember the we got him euthanized i faked being sick just so i could miss school to say goodbye to him. Benny's kidenys failed. Benny did everything with me from tea parties to helping me steal cookies from the counter.

I will never forget my big brown bear
RIP Benny September 20, 1994 - October 15, 2003
