Dear world, let me tell you a story. It's about a boxer named Benny who came from nothing to become something. A real rags-to-riches story. The true American internet-famous animal dream.
Raised by two hard-working parents, Mike and Chris, in the dreary depths of of "the Big Apple" (St. Marks Place eek), Benny knew he would have to stand out in order to survive the crust punks and loud-ass sirens.
He was going to make it.
He just had to figure out how.
So, he did what he did best, he used his natural talents and literally just stood there and looked cute.
And you know what? It worked. People began to take notice. Here was this boxer looking cute...
...he was onto something.
Then his godfather Grover got involved.
Benny will best be known for changing the way we view boxers. Normally stubborn and unwilling to participate in costume contests, Benny broke stereotypes and boundaries. The limit did not exist for him.
A few years back, his Godfather Grover introduced him to the world of costumes, glam, and applause.
Benny was known by all at the world's most important dog costume contest, the Tompkins Square Halloween dog parade. His impact was real and quick. It was Benny's world, we were just living in it.
