Benson may be a senior, but he acts like a youngster. On a walk, he has his nose to the ground and has that beagle “snort”. He gets along with other dogs and is housebroken. Benson has recently developed a tumor near his eye. He is unable to have it removed due to not being able to be anesthetized for surgery because of respiratory issues. Benson passed away on December 14, 2017.
