—Donna Reece, owner/breeder of Ridge View Labradors, two-time Best-of-Breed champion at Westminster Dog Show

—Dr. David Brewer, veterinarian and founder, Rockford Road Animal Hospital

My Boy, Ben is the true story of David Wheaton’s close companionship with an unforgettable yellow Lab named Ben. The journey begins with David pursuing his dream on the professional tennis tour yet facing the reality that his desire to get a dog will not be possible while being on the road for months on end.
A surprising letter received under his hotel room door in a faraway country changed everything. And soon David returned home to an unexpected puppy who would have an unimaginable impact on his life.
From the years of joy with his beloved Ben to the crushing grief David experienced upon losing him, My Boy, Ben is a moving story that culminates with the uplifting message of God’s grace—a grace that offers strength and hope in our most trying times.
My Boy, Ben is a “dog book” … and much more. You will get an inside view of the ups and downs of life as a professional tennis player, the close relationship between a son and his aging parents, and a thirty-something single man contemplating marriage as he transitions into a new career after the tennis tour.
Also, some of life’s biggest questions are explored: Why is there so much pain and suffering in the world? Can we know God’s purpose in our trials? How does God’s grace offer comfort, strength, and hope when we encounter difficult loss?
Whoever you are, in whatever place in life you are, we hope you enjoy the compelling story and uplifting message of My Boy, Ben.
