Ben has been chosen as the "Cool Mutt of the Month!"
for Sept. 1998.. Check it out!


My beloved Ben Dog.  Oh what should I say? hmmm...

Ben will be 4 on July 13th(he says to make sure to send lots of presents!).  I adopted him in April of 1995, from the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society.  He has reached advance obedience level in 'Dogs in the Park' Dog Training Club.  We have also done some clicker training and Ben can do many many useless pet tricks!  He's adorable. 

Ben and I are really big on CLICKER TRAINING.  It's a positive reinforcement method of training and WOW does it work.  I will try to put together some links on this fabulour method of training ALL animals.  In the meantime, look for 'Don't Shoot the Dog' by Karen Pryor.  You won't regret it!

Well, Ben has been putting on the pounds lately.   Probably cuz he sleeps on my bed ALL day while I'm hard at work earning his keep!  Or it could be, *sob*, cuz he's getting older!

Please see below for some pictures of BEN, the beautiful creature.  To send fan mail to Ben click here.   I really love my dog.  I get teary-eyed just thinking about him...

Pic00066.JPG (31290 bytes) One of my first pictures with my digital camera.  Are you worried about how many pictures of Bendog there will be??   Well you should be!  We are currently working on his portfolio. ;)
This picture was much clearer before it was scanned...Oh well.  This is Ben on a gruelling hike at Cascade falls.  He actually had to swim!!! Yikes. Ben_hiker.jpg (20137 bytes)
Ben_swimming.jpg (25627 bytes) Ok.  Even though Ben hates swimming there is the rare moment where he will venture into the water.  Mostly it's to retrieve food.
Yeah..this scraggly looking dog is mine.  Gawd doesn't he have that pathetic-dog look mastered.  Wet_Ben.jpg (28165 bytes)
