An update on our Benny
Hi all! I wanted to do a quick update on our Benny, who I can't believe will be turning one year old next month! Benny makes everyone so happy. He's funny, quirky, and rolls with all the punches.
Benny has lived at his breeders, then in an apartment in Virginia where he rode the metro in DC. He's flown twice with us, once for a florida vacation, and then one more time when we moved to Florida permanently. We moved into an apartment, and then 3 months later we moved into our newly bought house.
I feel like benny has gone through so much in his short life! Benny loves visitors at the house, his grandparents, bully sticks, and sleeping with his stuffed animal in our bed. He enjoys car rides, home improvement and shopping at Lowes, and big sister (my parents beagle) Maxie.
He is super affectionate and loves to cuddle. He likes bath time, and sometimes gets in the shower with me if he can lol. He still is quite annoyed at things being out of place and will bark if we leave something out that isn't supposed to be there haha. He also hates the vacumm so I have to clean when my husband is home so he could keep him off of Darth Vacumm.
I work from home and he makes it so easy during the day. He knows mom works and to stay quiet and relax and he gets a super long walk for being good. Last week I had the worst cold and it was if he knew that I wasn't myself. He was quite the therapy dog. People are just amazed at his intelligence and sweet disposition. We love him so much!
Last thing-- I had a really hard time accepting that he came from Liz Vargo just a year ago. We really did so much research and felt so comfortable with Liz. I felt proud of my decision and when we found out what happened, I felt a lot of guilt and sadness. I feel like I "rescued" him now rather than getting him from a breeder. I'm ok with this as we really lucked out with a beautiful and happy puppy who is just so smart and shows us so much love.
I check in often but am much more in tune to the facebook group. Thank you for being such a great support system. I've learned so much from all of you!
