Benster

Meet Benny.


This guy has been part of our pack for a year and a half.

Benny and I met last March when I decided to turn my life around and walk more.  I went on craigslist and posted a dog walking availability.  Within a couple of days someone contacted me about a well-behaved Golden Retriever that needed a mid-afternoon walk.  Just what I wanted.  I needed to get out of the office for 30-45 minutes and get some fresh air.  Benny needed someone to walk him around lunch time and he lived less than 10 minutes away from my office. B-I-N-G-O.


Benny and I fell in love instantly.  He was the happiest dog.  He loved our long walks and playing catch.  I loved going for a brisk walk every single day without the ability to make excuses about the weather or my lazy bottom.


Some weekends that his mommy was busy, Benny came with us to the parks and came along for hikes.  He got along perfectly with Cailey and Travis - making my life super easy.


When we got Jas, Benny fell in love with her as much as we were in love with him.  When he was at our house, they wrestled around for hours.  They happily jogged alongside one another.

In the winter, Benny came to our house for doggie daycare.  He loved the company during the day and enjoyed daily walks at lunch and after work with his 3 buddies.  Sometimes his mommy had to take long trips and Benny stayed with us for weekends or even a week or two. 


He fits right in at our house - like he's always been a part of our family.  Unfortunately, I plan to stop walking Benny and pass him on to a fellow dog walker when I get "too" pregnant to run around ever lunch.  I'm dreading that day.


I know I won't be the only one who'll miss him.

  4. How cool. I grew up with Goldens and think they are the sweetest dogs. I'm sure Benny will miss you as much as you will miss him!
