Okay, so I know everyone is going to be super jealous when they read this post but… I have the best puppy dog in the world - BENJIDOG!
Well he is not really a puppy anymore. But he is most certainly the best.
Benjidog is a Cavilier King Charles Spaniel which basically translates as, he is a snob. He refuses to normal dog things. Like eat out of a dog bowl, sleep in a dog bed, go to dog places… the list goes on.
Instead he expects human food. However not just any old human food. Ben likes Marks and Spencers, or more specifically, Marks and Spencers meat section. If we give him anything else he will literally turn his nose up at it. One time we managed to fool him with Sainsburys chicken… that was a successful day.
He also prefers to be hand fed. Sometimes we try to make him jealous by pretending that his many toys are eating food out of his dog bowl, but he is clearly more intelligent than us mere humans and has yet to react whenever we do this. So to prevent our dog from starving we have resorted to hand feeding him while he lies on the couch.
Ben also refuses to show people any affection. Actually he refuses to show most people even slight interest. On some occassions, when Ben has agreed to come out a walk with me, people have seen Ben and have exclaimed about his beauty and how absolutely adorable he is, and when they have attempted to clap him Ben has literally walked right past them. I mean, right past.
Some unfortunate fools have also tried to offer Ben dog biscuits. On these occasions Ben has just looked downright disgusted.
However, even though he is a little odd I have completely fallen in love with my strange little doggy, and wish that it was more socially acceptable to behave like Ben sometimes.
