sometimes man's best friend dies: here a place to remember:
if you go for name-search MAXIMUS you find my Bullmastiff
Hi there! You don't know me so I will introduce myself and, if I may Iwould like to tell you a little bit about my life story which I hopeyou will find interesting.I am a Yorkshire Terrier and my name is Benjy! I will be five yearsold next April and I was born in a kennel somewhere near Ingenio inGran Canaria along with a sister and a brother.The three of us were given to a local petshop and we were put ondisplay in a glass cabinet which was a bit humiliating. I don'tremember too much about that time but all I know is that I was 'rescued' by my adoptive parents Eamon & MIchel and taken to theirFinca in the mountains. They have been fantastic to me and pleasedon't tell them but I know that I have been seriously indulged since Iarrived here and I am really very very happy. When I got here, theyalready had another dog called Libra. They had also rescued her aftershe was abandoned by hunters at the end of the hunting season. She isreally lovely and I admit that when I first saw her I fancied her butsoon realised that she was too old for me and a bit on the 'large'size if you know what I mean!I must mention at this point that as Yorkshire Terriers go, I am avery well presented specimen. I am at my prime physically and I amintelligent, sensitive, obedient and extremely loyal. I know that Imust be good looking because when I'm out for walks all theneighbour's lady dogs give me the ' glad eye' and make it obvious thatthey would like to get to know me more intimately, if you get mydrift!Well, just over a year ago, Libra and I were out for our morning walkas usual when we came across a female Podenco who clearly had beenabandoned by hunters. She was very very nervous and jumpy and on thatfirst morning it was still quite dark and I could not get a good lookat her. The next morning however I was able to get close to her andrealised straight away that she was the most beautiful Podenco that Ihad ever set eyes on and let me tell you I have seen a fair few in mytime. Little by little, Eamon got to know her and soon she wouldfollow us on part of our walk but she was clearly terrified of humansand she would not let Eamon touch her or get near her. For me, it waslove at first sight and sometimes, I just could not sleep justthinking about seeing her the next morning. After about a month or so,Eamon got to touch her - wow, I was so pleased. Soon she started tovisit the Finca everyday and would eat the food that Eamon & Michelleft outside for her. It was 3 months before she actually came intothe grounds of the Finca and I am delighted to say that she has beenhere ever since. Eamon & Michel named her ' Brisa' ( spanish forbreeze) because of the graceful way that she just glides from place toplace! She is incredibly beautiful and needless to say that she ofcourse succumbed to my irresistible charm and after flirting forsometime we decided to get 'serious' last Summer and became an 'item'!Well it is suffice to say that one thing led to another and before weknew what was happening, Brisa became pregnant. We were shockedespecially as Eamon & Michel thought that it was impossible because ofour physical differences and we felt guilty because they already hadrescue goats, a rescue cat, rescue canaries and loads of chickens plusa farm to run. When Brisa started to show signs of her 'condition'they thought she was having a 'Phantom Pregnancy' and were notconcerned because it is not unusual and the physical changes can beexactly the same as in a real pregnancy.On Saturday, 26th November 2011 my Brisa gave birth to six beautifulpuppies ( two boys - four girls). She was assisted by Libra who helpedwith the placenta and cleaning the newborns etc and Michel was therealso. As the father, I was present at the birth but did not getinvolved in any of the 'nitty gritty stuff'. I was as proud as punchof my Brisa and she has proved to be a fantastic mum ever since and Ihave got to say that our six little ones are real beauties.Well, Eamon & Michel have told us that they can't possibly keep 5 ofthe puppies - they can't afford it both in terms of additionalresponsibility and money - and that they are going to find the besthomes for our kids so that they are all guaranteed a good future.Brisa and I understand and have taken it upon ourselves to ask youkind folk if you would take one of our babies for adoption asobviously it is of utmost importance to us that the puppies are lovedand cherished for the rest of their days!With this in mind, we have included photos of the puppies so that youcan see how wonderful they are and hopefully you will contact thoselovely people at 'Tara' about adopting one.After all that has happened, Brisa and I have decided that we are notgoing to have anymore puppies and she is going 'to see the vet' assoon as is possible to make sure that we don't have any more'accidents' in the future!Thanks for taking the time to read this and, take my advice and don'tmiss out on this opportunity of having one of our offsprings to enrichyour lives more than you could possibly imagine.Goodbye & take care.Woof WoofBenjy & Brisa.
