I haven't posted in a long while but I joined FBC just a couple of months after we got Benji and know they are alot of you on here still that knew him so think it's only fair to post..Heartbroken to have had to say goodbye this afternoon to our big man. I took Benji to the vets on Thursday as he wasn't eating and thought maybe his diabetes needed looked at. Laura our vet suggested a full blood count and she would ring us with the results. A couple of hours later she rang with the devastating news that Benji was in kidney failure and at most they were only working at 5-10%. She told me there was no hope for him but we could try and put him on a drip which could buy him a couple of months of quality time. Of course we grabbed that chance and he was on a drip Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. Sadly this didn't work and we decided to have a last weekend with him to spoil and love him. Even cooked him and Brodie a roast dinner Saturday and Sunday as Benji always got so excited when a roast was cooking and he loved having his dinner. So good to see him eat the lot Saturday but he only managed half on Sunday. He was so so tired and we knew come Monday (today) we would have to make our hardest decision ever. Over the weekend we let him make his own mind up re walks and he sure let us knew he wanted them. But as the weekend went on we could see he was failing fast so this morning I rang the vets and within minutes to our shock and delight he perked up and we went for a lovely long walk. Sadly this afternoon he went downhill rapidly and after all the doubting we knew we had no choice but to drive him to the vets which is just across the road. We are heartbroken and so so sad. Goodbye our darling boy Benji we love you with all our hearts xxx

Benji brought so much joy into your lives and I remember well when you got him as a little pup - can see him now in the pictures you posted as he grew up into such a handsome lad.

Love to you and George - such a sad day, he was a wonderful boy and I know how difficult this has been for you, but he knew how much he was loved, right up until the end when he left on his journey to the bridge xxx

I am really sorry to read about Benji going to the bridge... All my thoughts are for you this morning, Sue. Just remember that Benji was a very lucky boy to be able to spend his last weekend with his loving family. Love and hugs.

So very sorry to hear about Benji. He was such a very brave boy dealing with his diabetes and I know he was loved beyond measure. I hope you can take comfort that his last weekend was spent full of love and doing the things he loved to do.

Thinking of you and George at this very sad time and for Brodie missing his best buddy.

Xx

Thank you all for your lovely comments , so sad to know our Benji has been gone for 2 weeks we all miss him so much . He sure has left a Benji shaped hole am trying so hard not to get too sad for Brodie's sake, he doesn't like me crying and he's clearly missing him too. Had a few hard sad days with Brodie boy , he spent one evening looking and nudging the front door also rubbed and rolled himself where Benji slept and various other weird things but we're doing the best we can by him and think it's helping as he's bringing his toys out to play last few days.A big Thank You for the lovely messages some of you have sent and also the cards and flowers. xx
