This is Benny the Boston Terrier. He's pictured here at his "First Day of Summer Celebration" party that he holds every year on the lawns of his suburban house by the sea. It is quite a traditional thing amongst his family and friends and a date everyone makes a point of pencilling into their diaries as soon as they buy them in the New Year. Benny is an impeccable host, but can be a little over attentive to small details and sometimes forgets to have a good time as a result. For example, here he is fretting unnecessarily about the amount of punch he has and whether it will last the distance. Another concern is the music. Is it the right tempo and mood? Should he have something a bit more mellow or something more upbeat? He frets like this until eventually his Aunty Maureen spots him, talks him down, puts a champagne glass in his paw and orders him to have a good time. After that, he's fine!
