Ben and Rodney began living their dream together on June 4, 2010 when they became doggie father and son and moved into the prestigious waterfront Icon Brickell condominium in Miami that boasts the longest pool on the east coast of the United States and is surrounded by 2 fantastic parks that are ideal for Rodney. Rodney loves to hang out in parks and meet and be loved on by people, play with other dogs, and just chill out and watch people and boats pass by. Upon buying a Jeep Wrangler to escort Rodney around, Rodney and Ben now embark on frequent weekend road trips together to Miami and other Florida destinations, most notably The Standard Hotel in Miami Beach, the Brevard County Linear Park adjacent to the Brevard Zoo, and Viera’s Suseda Park. They have enjoyed every moment together as father and son, and are looking forward to bringing you this podcast to give you a glimpse of how they and their friends are “Living the Dream!”
