Bless him, he is gorgeous!  I love our little Meg very much but I do miss the calm contentment of the older dog having lost ours in February.  :inlove:

If any one was looking for a calmer companion Ben would be the dog to have. I have met an spent time with him on a number of occasions an he is just the loveliest gent going. He is happy to lounge around when I have been there and he come over and nudges your hand when he wants a fuss. All he wants is a nice comfy bed yo live out the rest of his days.

I loves him just a little bit :cloud9: :luv:

Some pictures of Ben enjoying a walk in the sun - they're not great, as he's a bit camera shy & wonders off every time I try to get his face, but he looked so happy  :cloud9:

Ben is beautiful :luv: is he still looking for a longterm foster home? and if so how important is distance? (I read you like foster homes close by, but does this apply to long-term foster homes too)?
