Ben’s World, 9th April 2018


how lovely of you to visit me, thank you. This is a snap shot of my world in response to the weekly questions posed in Cee’s Share Your World  post.

You can read all about my v. v. v big adventure by visiting my home page  and also, my Munro blogs. All my poems are here dog-poets page

Been anywhere recently for the first time?

Not for a little while now. The caravan park where we have our static is open again, so it’s been rediscovering my favourite walks at weekends, since 1st March. I must say they looked a lot different at first, in all the snow.

I did go to Stratford upon Avon, in January. It was brilliant I had the biggest game of ball ever down by the river, across from the theatre where they put on all those plays by a man called Shakespeare.

List three favorite book characters.

Lassie, Montmorency, Rowl and Snitter.


The Plague dogs is my favourite. It’s v. v. v exciting and I really worry about their safety but there’s a happy ending. And, big bonus, it’s all set in the English Lake District.

What is your favorite non alcololic drink: hot or cold?

A nice long drink of cold fresh water from a Scottish Loch, high in the hills, after a long walk and before a lovely swim.


What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  

Our old girl was 15, that’s 90 in human years. She had a big party and I wrote her a special poem. A poem for the old girl.

I’m looking forward to hearing about the new places you have been too.

Love Ben xx

  1. Dear Ben,
    We are so impressed that the muse has chosen YOU to visit so much. The muse clearly thinks you are THE one.
    We love hearing what you are doing and look forward to the start of your Munro adventures in 2018, just make sure it is safe to do so. Did you hear we had the Beast from the East hitting us twice in Norfolk this last winter? It was terrible to experience, even if we couldn’t see it, well except for lots snow which was deeper that Mimi in parts but she didn’t care. She is so tough for a little Shih Tzu with very short legss.
    Sorry we haven’t been in touch for a while. Our Mum and Dad are hopeless! Merry is trying to sent emails on our behalf but Daddie says, “Don’t touch the computer.” Do you think that amounts to dog abuse? Robbing us of a legitimate means of communication even if the I-pad does get a bit scratched.
    We hope that we all get a chance to meet up somewhere in 2018.
    With love,
    Mimi,Kera and Merry


  2. Oh Mimi, Kera and Merry,

    How wonderful to hear from you. I’m so glad you still like to drop in on me and find out about my antics. We did hear about your visiting beast indeed but wasn’t the snow great fun. Well now I really think your Dad has to make reasonable adjustments for you. It might involve getting one of those multi-tasking note books where it has a keyboard and then you can detach it and use it as a tablet. It would be perfect because you could practice your typing while the human was hogging the tablet part then, when he was out, you could attach put the whole thing back together again and get typing – no scratches anywhere.

    My van has been at my person’s work all winter and we finally hope Mickey has found alternative accommodation. The next thing is the MOT, please keep all your paws crossed for me. After that my person will get all our gear down, pack up the van and wait for good weather.

    We aren’t able to travel far together now with the old girl. We make it up and down to our caravan but she lives a very sedate life, in her old age and I have to be v. v. v careful around her. It’s very hard work.

    Love Ben xx
