Ben aka 'Canen Basil Brush'
Black tricolour Border Collie
owned by Len and Tracey
Date of Birth - 2nd January 2006 - 27th November 2014
Now at Rainbow Bridge with his best pal Jack
Ben is a really lovely young man, hopefully he should make an excellent flyball dog, he already loves playing ball.
Ben had a successful 2007 season running in starters and is now running reliably in open competition and quickly gaining his awards.
Ben was the anchor dog for Red Rose Rockets and gained his Pearl award (30,000 pts) in August 2014.
Sadly this was to be Ben's last award as his life was cut short with Cancer at the age of 8 and had to go to Rainbow Bridge to find his Pal Jack.
Ben or Numpty as he was known by loved his flyball and although diagnosed with IBD at the tender young age of 5 would never let it get in the way of his flyball. He fought his condition for 3 years and lived life to the full. Sadly on 27 November 2014 he couldnt carry on fighting and Cancer beat him and he went to find his Buddy Jack at the bridge.
Gone from our sight but never from our Hearts. Run free Benny Boy with your brother Jack until we all meet again
