As all dog lovers know, a pet dog’s main purpose in life is to give its owners unconditional love. Those fortunate enough to have a pet like Benjamin also know this love comes with boundless energy, goodness, innocence, incredible intelligence and lots of great and often humorous stories. Benjamin chronicles the life of one dearly beloved pet’s journey through life with his humans. This book is the cornerstone of The Benjamin Project, an educational and fundraising initiative in Benjamin’s memory (www.thebenjaminproject.ca). The vision for the Project includes a children’s picture book; a lesson plan and materials for one hour of classroom time at some point in the grade school curriculum about ‘Rescues’ and the joys and responsibilities of pet ownership; an educational app for people of all ages; a casual and fun clothing line; and an army of advocates for the Benjamins of the world such as dogs, cats, horses and endangered species.
“Our task must be to free ourselves … by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
- Albert Einstein
“I think anyone who has lived with a dog will understand your feelings and be moved by them. It is a lovely book and I encourage people to buy, not only for the story and the love it contains, but also because you are raising funds to help abandoned dogs.”
– Jeffrey M. Masson, author of Dogs Never Lie About Love; Beasts–What Animals Can Teach Us About the Origins of Good and Evil; and When Elephants Weep
“Good books use articulate writing, a passionate story and endearing characters to twist the reader’s emotions. Benjamin does all three, as the reader often can’t decide to laugh or cry as they are welcomed into the world of a “dog” family. Enjoy it and then go and take your dog for a walk.”
– Dave Marshall, author of The Sand Trap and The Ticket
“Your book is beautifully written and a must-read for dog lovers everywhere! Your Benjamin Project is a wonderful legacy of support for all pet owners and I’m sure you will find plenty of supporters through this book.”
- Mary Metcalfe, Editor
