For the Love



For the love, I sing to you
For the love, I touch your face
For the love, I give you me
And your eyes they shine with grace

For the love, you lay your head
Upon my lap and sigh
For the love, you give me you
Until the day you die

For the love is worth
any amount of pain
You are always here with me
In my heart you will remain

My mom wrote dis poem and wants to dedicate dis post to all the special ones who have gone to the Bridge to wait fur their families. One year ago, Feb 9th 2009, my brudder Benny went to the Rainbow Bridge. Mom misses her sweet and gentle friend, and I miss snuggling wiff my brudder and humping him when mom gave him more attention than me. Well, is true! I'm little, but I was Top Dog, baby!

Here's a picture of me and the Old Man, Benny Bean.


Here is Benny when he was a young pup, 5 months old:


He was mom's sweet boy for 14 years:


He loved to lay outside and feel the warm breeze...


Our dear fried Max's mom wrote a wonderful post about the importance of having pictures taken wiff our moms and dads. In honor of Max, we wanted to share a picture of me and mom taken last summer:


And here is a picture of mom wiff Benny.


We love you Benny. Always.

Benny Bean, Nov. 28th 1994 - Feb. 9th 2009
