Benny – the dog who couldn’t love

 

 

Benny had such a sad, angry look when we met
Benny had such a sad, angry look when we met

Have you ever met a dog who couldn’t love?

Who couldn’t look people in the eye?

Who couldn’t hug and kiss and snuggle and cuddle?

Benny was that dog.

He had many homes but no one wanted to keep him. 

They said he was T R O U BL E

They said he was mean

Benny never made direct eye contact with anyone

Benny never made direct eye contact with anyone

 

They said he was crazy

They said he was B A D

He could jump so high he did a somersault in the air

And he could run so fast no one could catch him

And he could wiggle and jiggle

The first time Benny made direct eye contact - learning to trust

The first time Benny made direct eye contact - learning to trust

 

But one day a nice lady met Benny.

And she saw the love in his eyes.

He wasn’t bad or crazy or mean.

He was scared.

And nervous.

And afraid of people.

Benny soon learned to be happy and smile

Benny soon learned to be happy and smile

 

So she took him home and showed him how to Love

She taught him how to be a good dog

A smart dog

A happy dog

Benny learned how to trust people again and guess what?

Benny now loved everyone and became a therapy dog

Benny now loved everyone and became a therapy dog

 

After just six months something amazing happened

The dog who couldn’t love became a THERAPY DOG

Benny, the scared, mean, crazy dog now shared his new love with others and learned the greatest lesson of all 

You can do anything with trust and love

You can do anything with trust and love

 

How to love everyone with a full heart
