Oh Dog! Today’s guest is a fellow blogger. Benny Wrinklebottom started out in a not-so-good home, but now he has a great one! Score one more for rescue!!!! Anyway, let’s let him tell you his story, so give a warm welcome to Benny!!!!
Benny: My gosh, I am so nervous (puts paws on blushing cheeks) to be interviewed by a world-renowned journalist like yourself. I follow all your columns and yearn to have your celebrity status one day.
Rumpy: *blush* Thanks Benny! I’m sure you will be! How about you tell us a little about you?
Benny: My name is Benny H. Wrinklebottom and I am a 10 month old boxer rescue from Vancouver BC. I used to live in a really bad home where they did drugs and had 8 boxers in a tiny 700 sqft duplex.
Rumpy: Oh Dog! That sounds like a rough life!
Benny: I was the little guy and often spent my days hiding away and afraid. I only have sight in my one eye cause people didn’t take care of the issue early. Then when I was about 6 months old, my new family took me away and I got to go for my first walk and move into a nice clean home where I get lots of love and attention. At first I was a scared of a lot of things but now I am braver than Bruce Lee. I love going to the dog park and for jungle walks with my parents. When I grow up I might be a Rap Star or a Food Quality Inspector, so hard to decide.
Rumpy: Maybe you can be both! Tell us about your wonderful new family.
Benny: I love my new family a lot cause they give me love, play with me and give me great toys. There are some issues though (lowers voice…eyeballs the room to ensure no one is listening). I’m gonna share with you some things that my humans probably don’t want you to know. Number 1- they are hoarders.
Rumpy: Oh Dog!!!!
Benny: They keep vast amounts of food in the cupboards and fridge and only rarely do they share with me (which I find terribly rude.)
Rumpy: The nerve!!!!
Benny: Number 2- they hold my food hostage in a bucket and only feed me twice a day. Number 3- they manipulate me to do things that I don’t like to do such as holding a piece of cheese up and forcing me to “sit….stay…come.”
Rumpy: Jen does that too! How can humans get away with that? Well, anyway, let’s talk about something more pleasant- treats!!!
Benny: I hope you have a few hours to discuss my favorites treats…let me start with Filet Mignon…hold on one second please…(turns to face mama) mama this is my time to shine… Rumpy asked the question now I need to answer…..Sorry Rumpy…Mama says to only name three so here they are: Peanut Butter, Cheese and Sausage Rolls (wipes drool from jowls).
Rumpy: I’ll take all four please! Now tell us how to find you on social media.
Benny: I am learning how to use social media. I have a Facebook and Twitter account and am lucky to have found many friends and I also have a blog on wordpress about being a rescue dog extraordinaire. I yearn so much for a smart phone so I can always be in touch with my online friends but my humans say until I get a job to pay my own bills I am SOL (whatever that means).
Rumpy: I stole Jen’s and use it. Now, one more question for fun. If you was a dinosaur, what kind would ya be?
Benny: Funny you should ask about what Dinosaur I would like to be. Just they other day, I told Mama I wanted to be a dinosaur when I grew up and she said that was not a good idea cause whose gonna clean up the mess and buy the dinosaur food. Considering that, I would like to be a little dinosaur who eats vegetables (maybe some peanut butter too) and doesn’t make too much mess so I choose……..LESOTHOSAURUS so that I can still live with my humans.
Rumpy: Awesome! Well thanks so much for being my guest today, and everybody go check out Benny’s blog- Benny Wrinklebottom!
