May 1995 > 15th February 2012.
A long and fun packed life for both of us, many ups and downs, he could drive me mad in a matter of minutes, he saw me through some rough times.
Ben the Dog, who was my friend for 16 years, had been a companion of mine on many trips to Cornwall. He was a dog that loved the outside. He had a face that smiled and touched so many people, I was so proud of him.
You will be missed Ben: Mum, Sarah and I will never forget you.
Sleep Well Boy
It’s a dog’s life, after a hard run a young dog could sleep and dream the day away, me I had to go to work.Cornish Mine Images. Ben the Dog

Even though his eyesight faded in his latter years he still had beautiful eyes.
Once in the water it was often difficult to get him out (Sept 2011).
Ben, Christmas Day 2011, he was always a happy dog, having unwrapped his presents he loved to burrow in the remains of the wrapping paper and bury his head.
Be a good dog and have fun.
God speed my friend.
