Someone 2 Know: Benson The Dog

Posted: Updated:

Ugh. Wind. 

Most people hate being in it, but this northern Nevada Pomeranian named Benson loves it.  

"He just loves standing there in the wind," said Taylor James, Benson's owner. 

You probably have seen Benson before. In fact, he's become a little bit of an internet celebrity, thanks to a picture shared thousands of times on Facebook last year. It features Benson and his thick, long hair being blown in the wind. 

"He just blew up with that picture," said Taylor.  He's  been on America's Funniest Home Videos, and even the Weather Channel. "They were airing it every 30 minutes. He was just so cute."

Benson is three years old and weighs six pounds. This 'pom mom' adopted him from the Nevada Humane Society in 2014. 

"I'm totally in love with him," she said.  

Taylor tells me Benson has changed dramatically after being adopted.  

"He was really sad, and kind of pathetic when I got him," said Taylor. "He's come alive and smiles all the time."

Benson has helped her too.

"He's made my life better because I have a companion," she said. 

After all, this dog is famous...so I had to ask..."Do the ladies love him or what?" 

"Of course they do!" she said. "But he does have a girlfriend, and they are exclusive." 

Bella is her name. It's pretty serious. 

They love each other," said Taylor. "They kiss each other the whole time they're next to each other."
