How times fly, it has been 3 years since Benji went over to the rainbow bridge.
Tomorrow will be Benji's 3rd anniversary and I still miss him heaps.
This is my BESTEST BESTEST BEST friend, sometimes I see him as my dad - Benji
This is me and my FAVOURTEST Benji
Its really a waste that Benji never got to know all the sweet and kind friends over here at DWB. I am sure he will make more friends than me, he is just so sweet and adorable.
If Benji is still around, I am sure he will like to do a little blogging to introduce himself. If Benji is still around, this is how he would have introduce himself, a short story of himself. Here goes
In the eyes of Benji
I could never understand why you locked and chained me to the balcony all day and night for my 4 years with you. I have never seen the outside world during my 4 years with you. My one and only world is the balcony.
The only playmate I have was my own pee and poo. I played with them everyday. They are my best playmates as they keep me entertained. But somehow, you hated me for playing with them, and you would cane me whenever you see me playing with them. But what else do you expect me to do?? Sleep?? But I dont need 24 hours of sleep everyday. I also need to exercise my limps and minds.
The only thing I look forward to everyday is the junk food and table scraps that you give me. They are the only thing that keep me going. But I had to be careful of the fish and chicken bones you gave me. Those are the evil little things which got stuck in between my teeth and poke my mouth! Bad Evil Little Ones!!
One day, many people came to see me, I was so scared, I had never seen any other human beings besides you. I thought they are here to cane me as well, like what you did to me everyday. I started to panic, I was so scared, my only defense was MY MOUTH!! I know, I will snap at anyone who came near me, you try to come near me, I snap you, human beings are evil. During my 4 years of contact with human, I think human are exactly like the fish and chicken bones in my food, they stuck in between my teeth, making me feel miserable. They poke my mouth giving me pain !! I hate fish and chicken bones and I hate HUMAN!!
My plans work, I was so agressive, I snap at every single person, none of them want me 8) Aren't I smart? Soon, less and less people came to see me. One day, somebody came to see me, from far, I could smell the dog smell on him, just like my smell. How come this person smells so much like me? If he smells like me, is he me?? Let me walk up close to smell him, argggg ..... smells so much like me, smells so much like my mama .... argggg .... this is so cool !! .... I let the person pat me, in the end, I follow the person home.
Life was good with this person - Fat Fat !! Finally, I had my own playmate!! And guess what? they are same as me, 4 legged! I shared my food and drinks with them and eventually, I also had my own "son", a puggy named Boo Boo
I had my most wonderful, quality, eventful, interesting, fun-filling, all the goodness that I can ever know for my next 14 years with this pack of people and 4 legged friends.
To my first owner, although I still remember you. I just want to say this," Thank you for giving me away"
Till this day, the only question on my mind was "Why did you come into my life when you cant provide the best for me? Why did you bring me home in the first place? I hope you do not do this to any other of my 4 legged friends"
Benji : I love Fat Fat, Gal Gal and Boo Boo. Thanks for the love. Thanks for everything.
This is something that Fat Fatn & Gal Gal wrote 3 years ago when Benji passed away. I just want to share it with you doggies, as we all at home remember Benji on 13 September.
What Fat Fat & Gal Gal wrote 3 years ago
You were chained and locked up in the balcony in the first few years of your life, until we came along. You were so agressive then..... I was so weary of you then, I still remember you biting me then, everyday, without fail, I nearly wanted to give you up. But I am glad I didnt. I grew to love you more by the days.
Over the years, you learn to trust us more. You were so easy to train. Soon, you learn to walk besides me without a leash, and from then on, I also learn to trust you more, you were free to roam wherever you wanted.
You never gave me much trouble. And you were ever so protective over us. Whenever, anyone raise a hand near me, you would growl at him. And you never fails to turn and make sure that we are within your sight even when you were of leash.
We tried our best to give you the best that we can, I remember you love your bone bone so much, you keep playing with it when you were younger. And that bone bone lasted you through your whole life. You only left it aside after your front tooth slowly drop. I know you were growing old and weak by the days.
You love your walk, and you love to go out to meet all your friends. When you were younger, you would be so happy running around and I love to see you so happy. Until the recent years, you would want me to carry you more, even when we go out. I soon realised that you tired easily, you were growing old and weak by the days.
You love me to carry you, you love me to cuddle you. Recent years, I realised that you like to sleep in my arms.
I hope you enjoy your stay here with me, Benji. I will always remember you.
I was still wondering why you looked at me with those pleading eyes before I went to work on the 13 September 2004. You were breathing so heavily, I had been preparing for this day for a few months, but it was never enough. It still pain to know that you have to go. Finally, I decided, and I told you,"Ok Benji, lets go gai gai, you are going to work with me!" I opened the door, you followed me, I carried you along the corridoor, you were still panting so heavily then. While in the lift, you started to foam, I start calling your name, I keep talking to you while we drove to the vet. I didnt let you go, and I know, you went peacefully in my arms.
Benji, I am thankful to you for letting me be with you during your last minute. You choose a very good time. You knew both of us wanted it that way. To spend eithers last moment together.
It is only after you left me, then I realise how many years we spent together, you came to me in 1990, that means we spent 14 yrs together. Before that, your first owner said you were about 4. That makes you an 18 yr old doggie. I hope you enjoyed your time with me Benji, please also forgive me for the things that I had not done for you. But remember the fun we had together. I love you always.
Benji, you go find Boy Boy Senior first, I am coming for you guys soon.
You will always be in our heart Benji. Love you
