Goodbye Baby Benny

Benjamin

I am very sad to say that Benjamin passed away yesterday morning. Wednesday night he had another one of his breathing/coughing/panting episodes. This one began shortly after dinner. We gave him one of the special shots we have on hand for emergencies like this, but it did not work like it did last time. The first time we gave him the shot, it took 9 minutes before he was calm and resting easy. Last night, it took 43 minutes for us to start to see any relief and the relief was only mild and not long lasting. As the night progressed it became more and more clear that this was going to be a long lasting episode. We did our best to keep Benjamin as comfortable as possible throughout the night and took him to the vet first thing in the morning.

While we knew Benjamin's trachea issues and other maladies were progressing, we were not expecting to get to this point so quickly. And although we anticipated summer being a struggle, we still thought we had a few more months at least.

Amidst the whirlwind of emotions and throughout conversations since Wednesday night, one prevailing theme has risen above all others and this is how happy and positive Benjamin was in life. He assumed the best in everyone and everything. He touched everyone he met and made them feel loved and left them with a smile.

In the spirit of Benjamin, I want to take this time of enormous sadness and remember all the joy that Benjamin brought to our lives. If you have a moment, reflect upon a favorite story or Benny-ism and post it in the comments for us all to share. I can't think of any better way to celebrate the pumpkin bread loving, pillow king that was the luxuriously wrinkly and most handsome pug we called Baby Benny.

On a side note, I expect we will take a hiatus from posting next week to take some time to process everything. We will return soon.

With tears, we are sending our thoughts and prayers to you and your family.  We’ve enjoyed reading about the antics of your pugsters over the years.  RIP sweet boy.

Our favs are the love of pillows and many pictures of Benny. He is truly the princess and the pea!

What a shock to read this news this morning. I have tears in my eyes as I say good by to Bennie.  It has to be very difficult for you.  Now Bennie is at the Rainbow Bridge perhaps with Sol and keeping each other company.

  My thoughts and prayers go out to you as I know how your must be grieving.

When I read the heading I couldn’t believe what I was reading and stunned, heartbroken when I read what I know all of us dread. Pugkin bread-I loved reading how sweet Benny loved his pugkin bread. Benny was such a happy boy, hard to believe he was so ill. Condolences and prayers for you,Henry,Luna & Cupid. pastor sue & the Colorado 2

I am so very sorry.  Benjamin was a wonderful pug, and he had a wonderful life in your OBP household.  It is a heartbreaking loss, and you will all be in my heart and prayers. 

One of things about Baby Benny that I always got such a kick out of was how he loved his puffy.  For a sweet boy like Benjamin to have such a beloved toy, just seemed to me to be a confirmation of his unique sweetness!

♥ I loved Benny, and I will miss him ♥

Sue (Pen and Lucy's Mom)

My favorite post about Benny is a recent one, January 13th of this year, about Benny’s evening ritual. That picture of him bringing y’all his puffy is so precious.
Benny and his puffy. Words can not express how sorry I am for your loss. May you be blessed with peace and some measure of comfort. We will keep you in our prayers.

I’m so very sorry to hear about Baby Benny.  My heart breaks for your family.  My favorite stories are of Benny and his beloved Puffy.  And his wonderful wrinkles smile. Thank you for sharing him (and Henry, Luna, and Sol too) with us.  He had a wonderful, spoiled life and will be greatly missed.

I can’t comprehend this right now….it’s as if I’ve lost my own.

I’m at school so have to be brief, but my constant thoughts and prayers are with you.

I’ll be back to reminisce later.

I’m so heartbroken for the loss of Baby Benny. I love you sweet boy; smothering your delicious wrinkles in virtual kisses sweet love.

I was caught so off guard. I love all your pugs and I know too well what y’all are going through. My Genevieve will be 13 in August and has congestive heart failure. We are staying as close as we can watching her. I have been following your sweet family since you were in Maryland and I know one thing for sure y’all have to be the most wonderful family Benny could have been blessed with. Please give Henry and Luna a kiss for me. I am so sorry to hear this sad news.

06/13/2014

I never post on here but I am a faithful reader each and every day.  I am so sorry. I can tell you that from an outsider looking in you have given your pugs the life that all pugs hope for.  Try and get peace in knowing that he had an incredible life and will always be loved, not just by you, but also by people like me who look forward to hearing what your crew is up to on a regular basis.  He will always be the pillow pug to me smile

I have never been caught so off guard with this news this morning!! I am absolutely shocked!! I can’t even begin to express my sympathy for you. I’ll be in denial with this news for a long time. I’m so sorry Corrine.
Love Roberta, coco, beau, and Lu the frenchi

Oh my gosh!  This shook me more than I can tell you.  I am so very, very sorry.  I love all your babies, but Baby Benny was special.  He had a zest for life that was apparant and he loved to have fun.  Hold Luna and Henry close as they will be grieving as well.  I love Owned By Pugs.

Jennifer Moulton

My heart is heavy with sadness for this pug I fell so hard in love with online and was then blessed enough to meet in real life.  I feel like Benny’s lovely wrinkle and beautiful pug-dog smile helped bring me two of the best friends a person could ask for.  I will admit that Benjamin, Benny Bag O’Wrinkles, Baby Benny, wormed his way into my heart, with his luscious wrinkles and loving manner.  The OBP pugs were my first real experience with pugs, before Jade and then Pink came into my life.  Stalking them made me feel like I too could have a loving puglet in my life.  So thoughts of Benjamin bring me so many feelings of joy, happiness, fun and love that it is almost overwhelming.

The day Sol died was terrible, and I was never lucky enough to meet her, though I loved her like my own and I am, again, grieving for Benny like was my own heart and soul.  However, I would not trade anything for the time I have spent getting to know this noble pugger.  He brought me so many blessings and lovely memories. 

My love for him will live on in those memories and the friendship I have been so lucky to forge with his humans and furry siblings.  All my love to Henry, who must be lost without his brother bud.  All my love to Luna, who must now share a pillow alone. All my love to Cupid, who has one less pugger to stalk.  And all my love to Benny’s human family.

Hugs, smooches and good juju to help heal your heart.

I am so sorry for your loss.  Baby Benny was loved by all of your readers.  I also love to hear the stories of all your furbabies.  I read the news this morning and was in tears.  The OBP world was blessed to have known Baby Benny.  Benny is with Sol watching over you, your family and especially Henry and Luna.

Lisa

06/13/2014

This is the first time I’ve ever posted after all the years of reading your posts everyday; but I just had to write as even though I’ve never met your pups, I am heartbroken and just sick to my stomach. My deepest condolences. I just can’t believe happy, loveable Benny is gone just like that. It seems so sudden. I didn’t realize his issues were as serious as I guess they were.

I can’t start my work day without reading your blog first each morning. Even though I have two pugs of my own, I need my OBP fix as it cracks me up how similar they all are. I’d swear you were talking about my two sometimes…

Again, my heartfelt condolences.

I am so sad to hear of Benny’s passing…..I am crying right now for you.  I’ll make sure I give my pugs extra hugs today in honor of Benny.

We have been blogger buddies for so long I can’t think of a specific post to share about Benny. But I do still love the photo of him when you asked me to make the Peanuts costumes for them back in 2008!  He was such an adorable Linus! We all try to prepare for this day…I am not sure that is possible.  Thinking of you as you walk these days of healing.

Ah Benny… the sweetest love.  We will miss you.

Sue VDB and Annnie Fannie

06/13/2014

My heart hurts for you, all OBP fans, and for me.  Baby Benny was a larger than life presence.  He will be so missed by many.  My tears are for you, Glynne, Henry (who grew up with Benny and must surely be grieving), Luna (who loved to share pillows with Benny) and Cupid who was not especially fond of Benny, but will truly miss him.

There are many favorite stories, but the one that stands out for me is Benny’s devoted routine of letting himself out after eating, coming back in, picking up his puffy and presenting it to you.  How he loved that puffy. 

RIP Baby Benny, and enjoy spaghetti with Solsey.  Follow that up with Baby Benny’s pugkin bread. I remember that recipe being renamed for you. You can now breathe easy sweetie, even though you are terribly missed.  Hopefully that will give some measure of comfort.

Love to your family,
Sue VDB and Annie Fannie.

So very sad for the whole OBP family.  I will miss the antics of the pumpkin bread loving Baby Benny.  The fact that he had the joy of being known as “Baby Benny” well into his senior years shows what a special little guy he was.

Robyn

06/13/2014

Oh my, my heart has dropped for your loss. Benny will always be Benny Bag of Wrinkles - such a sweet soul with as much love as skin folds. He is surely looking down on you with much love and breathing easily. Hugs to you all.

06/13/2014

So, so very sorry to hear that Baby Benny has left us.  Please know that you were the best of the best pug parents ever.  Benny lived a super happy pug life of piles of pillows and pumpkin bread.  You gave him a brother and sisters to enjoy and he was indeed the “baby” of the pack.  He is now with Sol enjoying the ever after.

My heart is well and truly broken upon hearing this news.
I too have read your blog for many years, but have never posted.  I just want to send you my deepest sympathies.  Benny was a joy to read about.  The 1 year anniversary of my own sweet “Baby Nick’s” passing is coming up soon. 
They are all playing at the ‘bridge” waiting for us to meet again.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know Benny had a good life with his wonderful family. I don’t think he could have been raised by a better family. I love your pugs. I look forward each day to see what the pugs are up to. I am very saddened today. Love and prayers to your family.

I always think of Benny and his French bulldog impersonation. So many more happy thoughts of Benny!

Julie

06/13/2014

It’s amazing how you have touched everyone and I too broke down and cried.  When I ran across this blog years ago, I remember when I first saw Benny and those beautiful one of a kind wrinkles, I’ve never seen any quite like his on any other pug. Thank you for sharing your lives, adventures and wonderful and sometimes heart wrenching stories with us.  You seem like family and I’m heartbroken for you all. Much love—Julie, Izzy & Lukie

We are so sad to hear this!
I look forward to reading your blog everyday, and feel as though I ‘know’ your little ones. With two sweet senior pugs of our own, your stories are funny and insightful!
I’ve never posted a comment here, but really wanted to send condolences for your loss…Benny had the best care possible, he and his puffy will be missed!

06/13/2014

I am so sad today for the loss of your pug who brought so much joy to my life through your blog.  I have been reading your blog for years now but have only posted a few times.  I cried today like I lost my own.  Benny was such a beautiful boy with such a wonderful spirit and I will truly miss him.  I am grieving for you and Henry, Cupid and Luna.  I feel a bit like a crazy person who cries over a dog I have only read about and see in pictures.  Your blog has made them like my own.  So much so that I felt compelled to write this.  My heart is with you xoxo Laura

I am so sad about your losing baby Benny.  My deepest sympathies go out to you and your loved ones Corrine.  Benny was an incredible pug that lived a great life with you and his furry siblings.  I will miss his massive wrinkles so much and his preference for pillows, the more the merrier smile 

He was such a gentle soul, and meant so much to all who knew him.  I know the pain of losing a pug to a collapsing trachea.  In all other ways, they are still the happy go lucky pugs we grew to love, but that breathing distress has its own language.  I am in disbelief still that this fine gorgeous man of a pug has gone to the rainbow bridge.  But we know that Pip, Solsey, Abby, and all the rest were there to greet him and that he is no longer in pain and distress and has been totally restored to health and vigor.  I’m gonna miss you so much Baby Benny <3

Sue VDB and Annnie Fannie

Penny, I am so sorry over the loss of your Beau. So sorry you were not there with him.  You must be a special person to send your condolences to the OBP family when you are grieving yourself.

Amanda

06/14/2014

I’m so sorry, how heatbroken you both must be. Such a shock.
Benny had the very best life as a pug and will be watching over you, running with Sol and waiting to be reunited again.

I hope luna and Henry are ok, my deepest sympathies for you and biggest hugs to share.

06/14/2014

We are so sorry to hear this. We don’t own any pugs ourselves, but were drawn in by your brood’s wonderfulness and personalities, and the great extended family you have here, so we feel we have become a part of it in a way. We are broken up about Benny too, and offer you our deepest condolences.

I think one of our favorite Benny pictures was him with his favorite toy, where he was trying to get at the thing inside. He seemed to have such a love of life, and we will all miss him so much. Such a great guy x

Heather

06/14/2014

It’s about 10 pm and I’m here crying for Benjamin.

For sure my fav thing about Ben, aside from his luscious wrinkles, was his bond with his puffy. Benjamin always reminded me of my Soul Pug, Baxter, and his mat; both of them such distinguished pug boys. I pray they’re chilling at the bridge with my Riley, Sol, and all pry other babies.

Thinking of you baby Benny…Corrine and fam, you’re in my heart.

Becky Livingstone

06/14/2014

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss of beautiful Baby Benny.  I was shocked when I read it this morning.  My favorite stories are the ones about the pillow pile.  Our Jackie also has a love for multi pillow sleeping spots.  I’m sure Benny is looking down from the bridge atop the best pillow pile ever while he waits to be reunited with you.  My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Leslie

06/14/2014

My heart stopped for a second when I opened your blog. It so so sad to hear of your loss. My deepest condolences.

Even though I never met little Bennie of course, he felt like a friend. I loved when you called him Bennie Bag-o-Wrinkles because that’s just what sweet wrinkly pug faces are. He had one of the best.

My favorite story is when you tossed some pillows onto the strollers and next thing that happens Bennie climbed on them and curled up.

Or the time he showed the sitter that he loved her by bringing over his puffie.

What a lovely, warm, adorable personality he had. He will be missed deeply, even by those who only knew him through your wonderful blog.

Laura Mason

06/14/2014

I am shocked and saddened. i have been following your blog for many years. I have so many fond “memories” of baby Benny. I love his love of piled up pillows and most of all his puffy. My grumble of five are sending lots of pugs and kisses your way. i am so sorry for the loss of such a handsome boy. XOXOXOXO

I’m out of bed pretty nearly every morning by 5-6:00.
I will never forget the text I got June 12 at 6 a.m. “r u up?”
“I am” i txtd back. “Everything ok?” 
“No.”
“What’s the trouble?”
“I will want u to come down this morning about 8-8:15 to say goodbye to Benny.We’re taking him to be put to sleep today.”
...and so it started…hours, days of sheer hell…unbelievable sadness…Benny with those EYES…Sweet, sweet Benny with that expression…bringing his puffy to me…he’d say: ummm ummm ummm…I’d answer: ummmm…ummm.ummm ...we always had a moment….I will miss him forever

Sue VDB and Annnie Fannie

06/14/2014

Grammy, I am so very sorry you lost your Baby Benny as well.  He obviously adored you and through the OBP posts, I know you took excellent care of all of them. I know you feel the terrible hurt as well.  I’m also glad you were able to be there with him during his final moments.  I know he felt the love.

Martha

06/14/2014

Oh Grammy, I am so very sorry for your loss, too.  He was a big part of your days, and how very hard for you.

When we talk about the OBP household, we mean you, too ♥

06/14/2014

I have come to this page over and over again, reading the original post and all the comments.  I just can’t believe that Baby Benny is gone - it is as if I lost one of my own pets.
    I live in a condo complex that does not allow dogs and have never had one of my own (just kitties, which I love with all my heart).  So I loved reading about beautiful Baby Benny and his brother and sisters.  I think Benny might just be the most beautiful pug I have ever seen, with his creamy light fur and his delicious wrinkles.  Thank you, Corinne, for sharing him with the world.  Please know all the joy he has given to so many people like me, and also know that you provided him with the most wonderful, pampered life any pet could ever have.

Heather

06/14/2014

Grammy, thank you for loving them the way you do!!!

I’m so heartbroken over this…keep coming back to read and soak up Ben.

Still with you all…grieving and loving you from afar!

Hey Benny, say hi to all our Puggers that were waiting for you. Someday…oh the reuniting it will be. Love you sweet boy.

Jude

06/14/2014

Such sad news! I have only ever posted a handful of times but have loved the antics of your little grumble of pugs! Benny had such a happy face, and his love comfy pillows is something i could always relate to. A pug after my own heart!
He may be gone but he had a wonderful, pugkin bread, snackies, love and fun filled life!

Julie L.

06/14/2014

Oh Benny.  I was so heartbroken to read this post.  Hugs and condolences to your family.  That said, I don’t have a specific OBP memory of Benny, but more a montage: pumpkin bread, laying in the yard, sleeping on squishy beds or pillows on the couch, walking, strollering, swimming but not much liking it, playing with young Henry at the slides on the playground…and PUFFY!  Gawd, can you have puffy bronzed?  That would be a conversation piece!  Love to all of you; Benny has his immediate family, but also a huge OBP family.

Cindy

06/14/2014

Oh my God!! I just got chills when I read this. So many prayers and love are coming your way. Baby Bennie had a wonderful life and couldn’t have been loved more. His little soul will live on forever.

I cannot express how much comfort everyone’s kind words has brought us.  I know that you grieve the loss of Benny with us. Thank you for letting me share the joy that was Benny with you. Whenever Benny or Henry or Luna do something silly I always think I can’t wait to share that with everyone on OBP. And when it was Benny’s time my heart also broke because I knew I was going to have to share the horrible news. I told him that everyone that reads about his antics loved him very much. Thank you for your support. It helps us more than you know.

Sue VDB and Annnie Fannie

06/15/2014

Corrine, hugs to you, Glynne, Henry, Luna and Cupid.  I suspect out of all the fur babies, Henry grieves the most.  Give them all extra hugs.

I just started reading this site about two months ago and your stories have touched and entertained me. I am so, so sorry for the loss of Benny. I wish words could simply express the sorrow I feel for you, but I know its not enough. Still, its more than obvious he had an AMAZING life with a family who loved him to pieces. My most sincere condolences through this time…

I am so stunned to read about Benny! I’m so very sorry. I found your blog when I lost my Baby Rocko a few years back. Your stories and pictures helped get me through all my grief. I hope you know how special Benny and you all are and how thankful I am that I got to know Benjamin, Henry, Luna, Sol and Cupid. Thank you for sharing your wonderful pugs with us. Benny was so very beautiful, I will miss him so very much.Take comfort in knowing he was beloved.

Rest in peace Benny baby. Give Sol lots of ear licks and sniffs.
You brought such sunshine to my life and I’m all the way in New Zealand!
Warm hugs and thoughts to all those in pain <3

I am a follower and a pug mother of Milo and Princess.  My heart sunk when I read of your final gift to your beloved Bennie.  As one who has gone through this twice with our departed pugs Otis and Sadie I feel for you and can only hope that the loving memories of Bennie slowly erase the memories of his last day and night as you arrived at the decision to say goodbye.  Please know that he had a happy and long life only because of your dedication to him and he now is frolicking with Sol and new pug friends.

I’ve been reading for years and have never commented before, but wanted to add to the condolences for your Benny.  He was clearly a special guy, and he was lucky to have been loved and cared for so well.

From our pug family to yours, thank you for sharing his life with us.  We’ll be thinking of you in this difficult time.  Please take care.

When I started researching the marvelous thing that is the Pug breed, this was one of the first blogs I came across. I think it was your Peanuts themed Halloween costumes that ‘sealed the deal’ for me and my family as to whether pugs were right for us.

For years I’ve followed the adventures of Solsey, Luna, Henry, and Baby Benny. And for years I saw the tremendous love and dedication you have for your babies.

I’m so sorry for your loss, Corinne. But know this: Benny lives on, inside all the people that loved him.

words can’t tell you how sorry i am to hear about benny.  i loved reading about him and his love of pillows and his puffy.  to think such a sweet and loving soul is gone is painful and i can’t even imagine what you and the rest of your family are feeling right now.  i know henry and luna probably wonder where there brother is and you can’t explain it to them.  so so sorry to hear about your loss.  my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am sooo sorry for Baby Benny.  I just opened the Pug Page this morning, Monday.  I am soo sad for all of you, Benny’s family.  I too have a 15 year old with trachea issues.  Zach takes pills to rest.  O tears are filling me up for your loss.  God Bless Benny and may he be happy where he has gone.

I am so sad to hear this news. Sweet, wrinkly Benny has been a part of my morning wake up routine for close to 5 years now.  My heart aches for you and the other puggies.

I’ll never forget “Benny and the Jets” and of course, his fave, the puffy.

So sorry for your loss. I feel like he was a part of my pug family as well. Many happy days of pumpkin bread at the Rainbow Bridge!

I am stunned, I am beside myself with sadness, and I don’t know quite how to handle it.  I always looked at Benny with the “He will live forever” attitude.  Well, he will live forever in my heart and mind.  Corrinne, I know that I can say nothing to relieve your pain.  Just know that you and yours are in my prayers.
I am so sorry.

So sorry to hear about Benny.  I will always remember how handsome he was with all those deep wrinkles.  Such a sweet soul!! Pug hugs to you, Luna and Hank.  Benny is breathing free and waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

I was away this weekend and away from my e-mail.  When I read about Benny this
morning, I was heartsick. I am so very sorry for your loss.  When I think of Benny——I think of Pugkin Bread. After reading so much about it, I started making it for Meiling and it is now her favorite treat!  Every time I make it———I will think of Benny, say a little pray for him and smile. Benny brought so much joy to so many people.

Corinne & family, OBP friends, my deepest condolences.
Baby Benny with your much loved wrinkles and sunny disposition, I cannot believe how suddenly you have left us.  My heart is broken as if you were one of my own. May Solsey guide you to the Bridge along with the other wonderful pugs that have gone before us.  The OBP family will look out for your family and help them in this healing process.  You will always be remembered and in my heart dear boy. Breath free and easy Baby Benny. xo forever.

Every passing is such a loss to us and his companions, Henry and Luna.  Tears are the first answer then fine memories of a life graciously shared.
