Will Bennett loved his dog Holly. The bachelor got his dog during the height of COVID-19 and said Holly was a gem of a dog, going wherever Will would go and doing whatever Will was doing. The two were inseparable. So, when Holly, at just 4 years old, got sick and suddenly passed away just a few months ago, Will was devastated. But this past weekend, he decided to — on Memorial Day — have a "remembrance" service for his beloved dog. A couple of close friends stopped by to remember a pal that gave nothing but pure love. Why do we get so attached to dogs? And why does it hurt so much to lose them? Will is candid and open about the pain of losing what is more than just a dog. Have an idea for the Allgood News?
