I’m starting a new series where I am going to share the pets of my family and friends. Everyone likes to meet new pets, right, even if it is just virtually? I also know my family and friends will enjoy seeing their own pets on here. It will just be something I do occasionally on a Friday (some Fridays have to be available for FitDog posts!). With the holidays approaching I’ll be doing more visiting so there may be more this time of year. It will be mostly photos with just a little bit about each pet. I hope you enjoy meeting some new cuties!
This week I am featuring two adorable older blondies who belong to my close friend Sheryl. Sheryl and I have been friends for over 30 years and she’s had many pets over the years. We shared an apartment in the 80’s and we both had cats at the time (you can read more about them by clicking here).She’s had some losses just in the last few years, so right now her furry household consists of one dog and one cat.
Canine Benji is a silky terrier/bichon frise mix, and he is 10 years old. He’s a friendly little guy, and he loves to be held. In fact, when we go visit him, he will bark…not an unfriendly bark, but a “Pick me up now!” bark! As soon as he is safely in someone’s arms, he is quiet and content. Benji originally belonged to Sheryl’s mother, but came to live with Sheryl when her mother had health issues making it difficult for her to care for him. He has always gotten along with all of the other pets in the household, and he is currently best buddies with Henry.
Feline Henry is about 13 years old. Sheryl doesn’t know his exact age since he came through friends of a friend. Someone was moving and couldn’t take Henry with them so Sheryl stepped up and gave him a home! Henry is very friendly as well….he always comes out to greet company, and he loves his canine brother. He might even think he IS a dog!
These two beauties fill Sheryl and her family’s life with much affection, joy, and companionship, and they are true best friends!
