Benny at the Car Wash

jac
Meet my beautiful young neighbour, Jacklyn. Her family has lived next door to us since before she was born and I've had the pleasure to watch her grow into a lovely, young adult. On this day, Jac and her friend Jen decided to wash her car.

Benny watched across the driveways, from my front lawn.

He watched as Jacklyn soaped up the vehicle and scrubbed it clean. He waited patiently for his favourite part.

And Jen soon obliged him.

Crazy little, wet dog!

This was a scheduled post. I will not be able to return visits for about a week because I am away at the cottage. I do have a few more scheduled posts though, and they will be coming up soon.

What a hoot that little guy is. Loved the photos and story, but a video would have been nice, too. There's just nothing better than a Benny video to bring a smile to a face. :)

Great pics Hilary. Hope you're having a fun time.

Wow! That boy has built-in springs. Fun on a hot summer's day!

Technogran said...

He reminds me of a dog we used to have called Tip. He was black and white, but was full of fun as well. Lovely shots.

I had a dog who attacked sprinklers. I had a hard time watering my garden with him around.

Brian Miller said...

hahaha he looks like he is having a blast...a little crazy is not a bad thing...smiles.

Cricket said...

Those are very funny... lots of motion captured, but what else would you expect from a JRT?

I'd say how about Car Wash by Rose Royce? Works. Jim Croce might do it too, but it doesn't look like Benny has the blues....

Enjoy the cottage and all that goes with it. Summer is all too short.

Snappy Di said...

This time of the year there are many days I could use a good hosing too, although I would not be willing to jump for it! Go BENNY! GO BENNY!

Ah, to enjoy the simple pleasures in life the way our pets do!

Have a great week, Hilary.

TechnoBabe said...

The warm days invite water fights and running through sprinklers. In our back yard the birds perch in their favorite places to be under the oscillating sprinkler. Great pictures of Benny joining the car wash gals.

Those Jack Russell's are so animated. Love those dogs! Very cute photos.

Love the post scheduler! It's a wonderful way to keep up (in a way) without being there. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Hilary said...

Thanks, everyone. I'm glad you enjoyed Benny at the car wash. He's a wet bundle of perpetual motion when anyone has a hose. Thanks for stopping by with such kind words. :)
