We all know that all dogs have their own unique tricks. Benny the Labrador went all out with his love of ice skating, which inspired a lot of people.
Benny was used to living at the pound. He was adopted once but was immediately returned the day after.
Cheryl Desangro was in the foster program for Labrador rescues. She saw Benny’s photo on the rescue website and was intrigued by him. She applied to adopt the dog and happily brought him to his new home.
Meeting the dog was very exciting for Cheryl, and she was surprised at what she saw. Benny was this friendly and active dog with a lot of energy.
Cheryl had no idea how to tire him out, so she decided to bring him to her training. She grew up ice skating and loved being on the ice. She let the dog run around the ice rink, and he looked so comfortable.
Dog on ice
An idea had hatched in Cheryl’s mind. She went out to buy some dog boots with little blades for Benny. After this, the two of them went back to the rink.
During Benny’s first try, he was determined to get up every time he’d lose balance. It was like seeing a little kid do it for the first time.
The huge smile on Benny showed how much he loved it right away. Every time they went to the rink, the dog’s improvements were evident. The dog loved copying what the other skaters were doing and ended up performing so naturally.
A lot of people were utterly amazed whenever they saw Benny on the ice. They couldn’t help but laugh and smile widely at the dog.
Benny inspired a lot of people because of his love for ice skating. Being an animal with four legs was not a hindrance to skating. It just showed that difference doesn’t make it impossible.
Cheryl was so proud of how far Benny has come. She felt blessed to have an extraordinary dog.
