Flashback Friday

THEN:
In February 2008, I fostered Benny - a senior hound mix.  He loved being petted and just relaxing on the couch.  I expected to foster him for awhile since he was an older, large dog.  But someone came into PetSmart the very first week I took him there, and they fell in love with him and adopted him. 











NOW
It's been two years since I've seen or heard from Benny, so I recently checked in with Benny's family to see how he is doing.  His mom says he is doing well, and is still a very big baby who likes to spend most of his day sprawled out on the sofa and most of the evening going in and out.  He sounds a lot like Remi.  I wonder if Benny likes to bark at school buses. 

Benny's mom says he "definitely has his forever home." Thank you, JoAnn, for giving him so much love and a great home!

The follow-ups must be very rewarding. It looks like he is living the relaxed, pampered life.
