It was lots of fun having some puppy energy in The Everett household in the form of a Whoodle named Benji. I have to say that Benji's biggest wish was for my older dog Teddy to play with him but Teddy was not so keen so I became Benji's companion. I tried to get him tired with various tug toys, a walk, and chase in the backyard. He has 2 modes: full on and off so this seemed to get him settled in for a late afternoon movie. In the morning, he also did his own form of exercise while my middle son did push-ups. Then, Benji and I got to do an hour neighbourhood walk. Sometimes, it is hard to get good photos of black dogs so we found lots of colourful backgrounds to take nice shots of him. My youngest son then got some play-time with Benji while I took Teddy to the park with his Chuck-it. When we arrived home, Benji was laying by the door waiting for our arrival. I could see the air bubble from his head that was saying, "Teddy, will you play with me now?" Well, maybe another time Benji as this was just our warm-up adventure. See you soon.

DGR RUN OF THE DAY #1
DISTANCE: 2.7 km DURATION: 54 minutes
Today's outing with Benji was in an effort to see how Whoodle Benji and my dog Teddy would get along on a walk. Since pre-school Benji's boy and my son have been best buddies so it was like organizing a playdate but with dogs. Benji is still a pup so was learning how to cruise on-leash while I think he would have preferred to just wrestle with Teddy. Teddy tried to ignore him and keep occupied with his orange Chuck-it ball much to Benji's chagrin. As you can see from the above photo with the braided leash, both dogs were switching positions. We did some short sprints in the snow to get out some puppy energy. As a result, Benji got a cute snow beard. I think with future play-dates, Teddy and Benji's relationship will blossom into a lovely friendship/bromance. The Scoop: 1 poo each and lots of pees. Welcome to the DGR pack Benji!
