Don't look at me
Every day is so wonderful Then suddenly it's hard to breathe. Now and then I get insecure From all the pain, I'm so ashamed.
I am beautiful no matter what they say. Words can't bring me down. I am beautiful in every single way. Yes, words can't bring me down... Oh no. So don't you bring me down today.
— Bennett in Too Short
Goofing off, writing, caroling
Bennett James is one of the main characters of the sitcom Dog with a Blog. He is a child psychologist for a living and thought of adding a dog to the family, which came along Stan. He's not a very strict parent, but can sometimes surprise you in a lot of ways - which isn't a good thing.
Bennett is portrayed by Regan Burns.
Bennett was born with his brother Bob to Nora James sometime in the 1970s. At a young age, Bennett had a fish named Leo, who he thought he could talk, until realizing it was only in his head. The family later ate Leo for dinner. They had two children: Tyler and Chloe.
Then, as seen in How I Met Your Brother... And Sister, Bennett was engaged to Ellen Jennings, the mother of his eventual stepdaughter Avery. Despite being in good terms, Tyler and Avery were not. But Chloe was glad to have Ellen for a mother.
Bennett is the father of the Jennings/James family. He's a big-time child psychologist who has written several books, however, he's kind of a goof ball (he even wanted Tyler to be featured on the cover of his next book). He always thinks he knows the best way to handle everything, and comes up with some pretty unusual ways to deal with family issues. He always thinks of Chloe as a princess, himself as a king, and Ellen as a queen. Bennett is normally the more serious compared to Ellen, and is shown on several occasions to be quite inteligent, partially down to being a psychologist he can normally predict her actions quite accurately.
Bennett is tall, and somewhat buff, as he is very muscular. He has short, blonde hair, as well as brown eyes.
Ellen is Bennett's new wife.
Avery is Bennett's step-daughter.
Tyler is Bennett's son.
Chloe is Bennett's daughter. He and Ellen are always accidently leaving her at random places and when they realize it they both yell, "Chloe!"
Bennett got Stan to help the kids smooth out their relationships, as Tyler and Avery are constantly fighting.
