About Ben

Ben aka Bennifer as a dear friend of ours started to call him years ago and the nickname stuck! He's also known as 'The King' or 'The Boss' in our home because quite frankly at his age he does what he wants when wants on his! I've had many dogs in my life and many Goldens, but none of them have had a personality like Ben. He's sweet, but stubborn. Independent, but LOVES no one else on this Earth more than his Poppa; I come 2nd in his life. I do believe this is because his 1st owner when he was a puppy was a male. Even though I initially rescued him, he has been attached to the hip to my husband the minute they met. Ben has lived and moved with us for the last 13 yrs. Some of his favorite activities are: walks, chilling in front of the TV, watching fireworks(completely serious), camping(loves it), going to hotels, playing at the beach, chasing any squirrel in his sights, meeting new people and inviting himself to parties. He's one of the most social dogs I've ever owned. He even has his own Facebook page that our old neighbor in Portland, Oregon runs for him. He's not to much for big dogs, but does like the little ones. But, because of his age and his hips we try and keep him away from too much high activity; he does tend to get nervous if bumped and/or there is too much play going on around him. Ben is the apple of my eye, the love of my life and though he's in his "Golden Years", I wouldn't change a thing about him or him having us in his life. He truly is the heart of our family. We look forward to meeting you soon. Wags + Licks!
