Overview

Ben is a smart aleck dog who walks to the beat of his own drummer—to hilarious effect. With his unabashed belief in saving his own skin, wise ideas about staying safe, and way of endearing himself to any hunter who takes a dog along, this rogue retriever has had a memorable place in the hearts of outdoorsmen for years. Now he’s back, and no acre of woods or inch of water is spared from his delightfully un-obedient antics.

Whether he’s attempting to bring the great outdoors inside, satisfying his appetite to the disdain of his master, or reeling in trouble with each cast of his fishing rod, Ben is simply at it again, still mounting more laughs than game. With more than one hundred original, beautifully illustrated, and cleverly captioned cartoons, there’s no mistaking this witty work for anything but another sure-to-be beloved classic of syndicated cartoonist John Troy. The perfect gift for anyone who has ever found a friend in a rascal of a hunting dog, Ben Lives is page after page of puns from this high-spirited pooch.
