Susan Foster – Submitted by Susan Foster


I adopted Benji from the local shelter back in 2004. He was just 6 months old then. His name was Gizmo. I could see why they named him that. If he was angry he would show his teeth and it made him look just like Gizmo on the movie “Gremlins”. Who ever owned him must not have had the knowledge or patients to housebreak him. But my family and I worked with him and soon he was asking to go outside. He’s been a beloved member of the family ever since. Even my parents call themselves his grandparents. They think of him as my child. And so do I. He’s smart and stubborn. But most of all he is loving. If I’m crying or sick, he is there with a nudge and a hug. That’s right, I said hug.I guess he got that from watching me. He is my light on any dark day. Bad day at work? No problem. Benji greets me at the door with a smile and a hug. Who could ask for a better companion.
