I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Benjamin. Before I looked at B's pictures or read your sweet tribute to him, I went to Hana's site. What an enormous loss you are experiencing right now. I remember that when I had 2 dogs (in my case a mother and daughter), my mother dog went first, and when her daughter died (almost to the day) a year later, it was like losing the mother all over again. Sometimes it just seemed too much to bear. I have always had faith the Lord knew what He was doing when He decided that our companion animals wouldn't live as long as we do. They teach us so many lessons; the joy of "puppy-hood", the responsibilities of caring for something that is completely dependent on us, the joys of pure love, the value of companionship and unconditional love, the beauty of old age and a life well lived, and the sacredness of life. I am thinking of you, and will light a candle for both Hana and Benjamin, and I will look for you Monday night.
