R.I.P. Bennie Bear
1999-2012

He was King of Granny Mountain, Ben was a rescue dog, our daughter Amy took him into her heart at a time she needed unconditional love...the kind that only comes from a pet. We welcomed him with open arms, and he worked his magic on all of us. He healed Amy's broken heart, he gave Jerry and me many happy years of devoted love, he was friend to every dog he ever met. Ben loved each and every one of us with the no strings attached, full on, lick you in the face devotion that canines are known for.
Granny Mountain was a happy home for Ben, he loved setting on this patio with us, under the trees watching the squirrels and deer. He loved boat rides to Horseshoe Bend and car rides to McDonalds. In time we can smile and say his name but for now, we'll quietly remember just how much we loved him.
