Benson is an adorable Golden who arrived with a hot-mess list of ailments that would turn anyone upside down!
The poor boy had both hookworms and Clostridium (a bacterial infection) which led to puddles of diarrhea. He also tested positive for heartworm. Triage was in order.
We dealt with the hookworms and Clostridium first (because no one is a fan of cleaning up runny poo!). Then, we needed to put some weight on him before beginning the heartworm treatment. While all of this was going on, Benson earned the coveted office dog spot where he could be closely monitored.
Regular readers are familiar with the office dognapper – aka, my gardener buddy, Anna.
Soon, I began noticing that my gardener was disappearing, and my camera was loaded each week with images of Anna and Benson.
So it was no surprise that Anna showed up on Sunday with her Jenni and Royce (16!) for a meet-and-greet.
With a thumbs up, the red-heads headed home together – where Benson has found a comfy and quiet spot to rest while he finishes his heartworm treatment.
It seems this wormy boy has wormed his permanent way into our dognapper’s heart.

What a wonderful love story! I’m so glad that Benson has found a home 🙂 I just love that face. Thank you, Anna!
I love happy endings, especially the real life ones. 🙂
Good job, Benson!
Wonderful, just wonderful!! Hope Benson gets better very soon. Beautiful boy, beautiful story.
Having seen our Ray through heart worm treatment. my heart goes out to all those dogs who get it, and all those people who help to keep them calm during the treatment duration and make them feel loved. 🙂 Great job “guys”! 🙂
It is a challenge…especially for a squirmy wormy boy like Benson who is full of pep! But Anna is up to the challenge!
Guilty as charged! With multiple counts for stealing hearts on the internet as well. Glad the dognapped and the dognapper are both doing so well.
Thanks, Will! In Anna’s good care, Benson will be heartworm free and flying again in no time at all!
What a pair!! Anna is totally in love, and that is a good thing..;
Poor baby. I’m so happy to hear he’s on the mend and in loving arms. Such a happy ending.
Walking in and seeing that hunk of love Benson in the front office I would have taken bets on who was going to scoop him up! Right where he belongs indeed~!
I know all your stories are not happy but most of the ones you share are and they warm your readers hearts to think there are so many loving and caring people. 🙂
And that is why the rescue is my “happy place” – even on tough days. Thank you, Judy.
