|Hi, I'm Ben. I'm the oldest and wisest of all of the bunch. I'm what they call epileptic, but I don't let it get me down one bit. I'm all of ten years old and I know just about all there is to know that a dog needs to know. Mom is very proud of me because I can do tricks, but most of all because I mind her the best. She says also I'm a very good listener when she needs to talk to someone. Some people laugh and say she's crazy to talk to me like I'm human, but we know she's not. I understand her and she understands me. after all, we've had plenty of time to learn each others language. Both words and body.|
|I still remember in the beginning. I was the runt of the litter and the woman who owned my mother and father knew I was not the strongest and needed to go to a special home, where I would be well taken care of. That was where Mom came in. She promised the lady she would be just that, a very good mommy to me and take care of all my needs.|
|Shortly after I came to Mom, her daughter bought a puppy also. She named her Tiesha. As puppies, Tiesha and I had great fun. We went together everywheres. When we became adult our friendship turned into love, and with love along came puppies. Three litters. Not one looked like me at all! After the third litter Mom could see Tiesha and I weren't going to stop mating and so she spaded her and nutered me. We didn't mind we still had each other anyways and now we could be the babies.|
|In our first litter came Petey. My Dad (at that time) fell in love with the poor little sick pup and desided he wanted him for his own. We later found out he to is epiletic. Mom didn't even know we had it or what it was until the vet told her about it when she asked about Ben's siezures. Anyways Petey grew up ok, but very spoiled. I had to keep prooving to him I was the boss of the house almost every day.
One day Mom left us and never came back. I was horrified! My Mom had left us, worse of all me!!! After what seemed to be a life time she came one day and took me with her to live with her and this new man.
|Mom told me he was to be my new dad. I like him. He was friendly and played with me alot. I missed Tiesha and Petey, but at least I was with my Mom again and I ajusted to the new circumstances. We did alot of neat things together with Dad's little girl, who came to visit on weekends. We went out for long walks in the woods and even to a big Pet Shop to buy ME a toy. My new life was fun!|
|Then one day Momy brought home Olly, the ferret. Now I had to share my toys and that wasn't always fun to do, but I gave in to her and we became sort of friends. Not long after that Mommy brought home another ferret, Brat. Man was he a BRAT!. He jumped and bit and never stopped, but I liked him. He was fun to chase. The pets didn't stop with us trio. When we moved out of one place, we inherited a tiny, kitten Mom named Shadow because she followed everyone around, including me.|
|When we next moved to the home where we live now Mom got a puppy named Bo. Now he's a real pest to me and Shadow, but I guess I'll have to put up with him because I can see Mom loves him as much as she love all of us, so now this brings me up to now and this is why we're called "The Menargery.'|
