GUEST,AggieD BS: HEY!! Dog Lovers--Neat Story (24) RE: BS: HEY!! Dog Lovers--Neat Story 02 Jul 03


We used to have a great dog by the name of Benji, who had been badly neglected. He was so thin when he came to us via some friends who did animal rescue, that he couldn't even sit down, or lay down in one position for any length of time. Apparently he had been left to roam the streets by the family that owned him. They had taken him as a puppy believing him to be a German Shepherd, when he was in fact more like a Collie/Retriever cross, so there was no way he would ever make the guard dog that they wanted, far too soft & cuddly, so they let him roam. A friendly local butcher took pity on him & fed him, but his daughter had been bitten by another dog, so he couldn't give him a home, & contacted our friends. They already knew about him & had tried to educate the owners on responsible pet keeping, but apparently they wouldn't feed him & he learnt to knock pans of baked beans(refried beans I think in the US) off the stove. We took him in & with lots of TLC & good food, worming etc. he soon became a lovely pet that everyone loved. Although he never did quite lose that wanderlust. We are sure there were several litters around our estate that had that cheeky look of our Benji.And he never lost his love of beans!
