Bennix is no longer my dog… (guide dog update)

WRITTEN ON THE SCREEN:

2:56 – I want to be clear, we had observed weight-loss in these 2 months but it was not until we went to the vet and he was weighted that we realized HOW much weight he had lost.

12:19 – I desired to capture at least a little with him for you so that you could have your goodbye and maybe get a small bit of closure too because you all deserve that.

17:35 – Though I do admit I’ve wrestled a lot with it… feeling guilt, and a whole host of other difficult emotions around getting a new dog so quick. Ultimately though, I know it was the best thing for me to do for myself and it’s what Ben would have wanted

17:57 – I should clarify that I’m speaking about the guiding program – their waitlist for Autism and Mobility are much longer than their guiding program.

I’m Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  7. I had to put my dog down half a year ago. He really helped me through my depression. He wasn’t a service dog, but he always woke me up when I had a nightmare and sat with me when I felt alone. I’m still grieving a lot and slipped back into depression, but nobody seems to understand. You telling us in your video that it’s normal to grieve helps me a lot. Thank you and I sent you lots of love.

  8. It’s amazing you can get a new guide dog so fast there, I’ve heard in Sweden it can take years.

  9. I am so so sorry about Bennix. I don’t know why God allowed this but I will be praying for you both, Molly. Ben is such a good boy and I’m grateful he will be able to live a long life. I am SO grateful that he is with his foster family and that you can see him whenever you want! I know that can’t be all the time but I pray in the name of Yeshua that your friendship with Bennix can be lifelong, even if he can’t be your guide dog.

  10. Of course he not replaceable! He is was a special part of your life.

    But you need to feel comfortable and confident living your life. I can see that you feel that way with a guide dog. I am glad you got to say goodbye.
