Yesterday on two seperate occassions i notice that Benji was hesitatiing about putting his back left leg on the floor. He'd then sit down and once he got back up he was fine.
I'm keeping an eye on him to see if it happens again today.
Do you think it could be something or was it just something little, as it seemed that both times it happened was when he was being hyperactive.

I'd ask the vet to check for luxating patella if it continues.

Yes agree -- any sign of it again and he needs this checked by a vet. Luxatting patella (a knee that isn;t correctly fitting in the joint) is a common problem in small breeds and may need corrective surgery as it can cause significant pain, and early onset arthritis if left untreated.
