    Well our Tom Cat was named TC from the cartoon Top Cat, and Top Cat's side kick was Benny, so that's how we named Benny.:)

    I think Benny is praying that there will always be wood for the stove. He is wicked cute.

    Charlie, Benny is obviously a SMART dog. He looks a lot like my Oggie. In the morning, she lays by the stove and looks at me like......are ya goin to get this thing goin or not?

    and I have posted this one before, but it is so timeless I just have to post it again. My grandson and his dog, vying for the wood stove at my son's house.

    hey, that's my boy Skipper...when I lived in Louisiana he was running the streets coming in my yard under the fence after my Lab/Chow female...one day wife saw him hurt on the side of the street hit by a car...I rushed him to the vet and they amputated his left rear leg...I named him Skipper, we moved here and he was in heaven living next to the forest...he got sick a couple of years ago, the vet said she'd never seen a dog that sick look that healthy, well we caught it too late...he was my buddy...

    Oh man, you are really tugging at my heart. There is nothing like the love of your dog. I guess Skipper paid you in full with his love, for rescuing him, but it is the hardest thing in the world to loose them. Glad you had his love for as long as you did.

    Sorry to hear your loss of Skipper.. That is a really tough thing to go through. You don't realize how much they are a part of your life until the void is there and they're gone. Some idiots down the road leave their dog tied to it's dog house inside an open barn. That's it's life, oh and seeing the food bowl come once a day. Never gets to see anyone, etc. I %$&king hate seeing that! Why have a dog! Bitter cold out and there he is all curled up in his dog house. I feel like taking the people from their house and chaining them to the dog house with a pad lock and throwing away the key! Dog would probably love someone to love him! Guess you can tell I'm an animal lover.:cool:
