Benji’s Training Day

All photos taken on May 14, 2022.

Benji, the Wonder Dog here. You can call me Wonder, if you like, ’cause, you will wonder where I am going, what I am sniffing, what I will be barking at and will I come when called. I like to keep my pack of Hoomins guessing. Its who I am. Its what I do.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Ah, I always enjoy a Benji article. When I first saw the title I was a bit concerned for ol’ Benji, who I imagined in some poor Ethan Hawke role. A dreadful manner of pitbull, looming over him, Denzel Washington style. Quite the opposite as it turns out, enjoyed this romp and all the humour peppered with it. He’s such a handsome fella.

    1. Thanks Leighton. The movie by that name never crossed my mind. I was more interested in the view from 4 paws as the pup tries to train the humans. He is a looker for sure. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

    1. He likes to get his two woofs in there. He does like a good game of fetch, but like in the post, he does not always return the ball close. Google actually thinks Benji is a cat, as he displays catlike behaviours. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan
