I know some of you will have read this elsewhere, but for those that haven't, our beloved furry Ben(dog) died on Tuesday/Wednesday. Many people who have attended Africam Meets met him.
There is a hole in our lives and a space on the living room and bedroom floors that he no longer fills. A nose that could home in on the tiniest piece of chocolate from 1000 paces (or more, with a following wind) will no longer magically appear in our hands. The gentlest dog in the world who loved everyone and everything is, we are sure, in a better place.
