Benny is 10 years old, and we've had him since he was a puppy. We got Benny when I was just 2. Benny grew up with my sisters and I and has been nothing but a caring, loving companion. Benny suffered a sliced tail when he was young, and lost a lot of blood, but thankfully he pulled through and is still with us today. Benny is our hero because he has always been there for us, through all the changes and hard times. Benny is one of our few constants in our life, and we cherish him more and more each day for that.
