We bid goodbye to a canine star

Phoenix Youth Theatre dog star Benny Milne

It is with a deep and profound sadness that we report that our beloved Bennie, who starred as Sandy in Phoenix Youth Theatre's Annie, has passed away.

Bennie was an absolute highlight for cast and audience alike in the 2010 show and he loved every second he spent in the spotlight.

We hope that you will join us in remembering him as a sociable, fun and loving dog. He will continue to live on through all of us.

After all, good dogs never die. They just fall asleep in your heart. And they're happy, so they wag their tails and that is why your heart hurts.
