Benny never realized, before he started dating him, just how much Mark was like a puppy. But when someone went from roommate to boyfriend, you started noticing new things about them.
Mark was... well, let's face it, cute and fuzzy. He had this way of tilting his head to the side, when he was confused or curious, that reminded Benny of a golden retriever puppy, ears perked, dark eyes intent. And he positively melted when you rubbed his belly. Just like a puppy, really.
Even better than a puppy, actually, because Mark didn't make messes on the carpet.
