Ok so I posted in Ben memories thread that there is a rottie that has a story so close to ben's it could be ben.....the woman adopted him from the organization I volunteer for meaning the dog came from the area Ben did.....she needs donations cause she is in the military and limited funds but wants to do right by her boy, he now had diabetes....it's out of control and nothing is working....I mentioned the green algae F3 stuff and said I had a whole bottle if she wanted it to help him just feel good she emailed and after I sent a pic of ben to her she said we had to talk, so today we talked for 2 hours about our rottie boys

We kept saying they had to be related but I couldn't see how as her dog is 4 and ben was almost 10, but then it hit me - Ben was dropped at the shelter at age 7 with a female!!! they had been a breeding pair, THIS COULD BE BEN'S PUPPY!!!!!

I know it's a LONG shot but the stories and the illnesses are just tooooooo close to not be connected.......other than this dog having diabetes which Ben didn't it all sounds the same.....down to the long hair with some waves!!!

Max came to her hairless, heartworm +, and skin allergies, sores, scabs, weightloss, super gentle, easy to manage, loving to a fault, easy to train, a big boy, eye drainage, ear infections, and needing a medicated bath all the time, round head/skull, weighing the same, Max loves veggies especially tomatoes!!! and tons more things that are exactly like ben. We talked about how they reacted to all those above things and it was like listening to a story of Ben....then she said that if she got home from work and didn't go right in she could hear him howling/yodeling for her....for two hours we discussed the symptoms, behaviors etc. of both and they were Ben over and over......and the pics I will share those here

I can't help but wonder and ponder could this be his offspring......

  

so who is who???

Ben is on left Max on the right I have a pic that matches Max's pic I need to find it put I had max up on the computer and danny walked by and said "I miss him so much" I said "who" he looked at me like I was an idiot and said "ben of course" I said "oh this dog"  him "yes" another weird look hahaha then I said "but that's Max" he stopped dead and was stunned and came over to read his story.....I mean it's that uncanny

If he turns out to have pemphigus this is ben's puppy I just feel it in my soul too much for my heart.....just pondering how small a world it really is.....and actually hoping I am wrong because that would mean way too many puppies with serious health issues.....

they came from the same shelter too, and when I saw Max's pic I wanted to adopt him his eyes spoke to me cause they were Ben's eyes.....and his mom referred to him as her Gentle Giant I told her Ben came to me as Gentle Ben; means that if this is one of his puppies that Ben was dropped off shortly after the female had this litter of puppies!!! I wish I could list off all the things that were exactly alike but the list was so long I can't remember them all right now, that memory thing.....
