Meet Henry

The only thing funner than finding out you're going to be a grandparent - or parent (when you want to be of course), is surprising the kids with a puppy. Our event wasn't a repeat of the ribboned box beside the twinkling tree on Christmas morning, eagerly opened by a giddy, glowing children; rather, it's was the end of a week at summer camp. Mom showed up with a new pink purse, which went unnoticed until I showed it off, unzipped the top and... out popped Henry.


We brought Leo along (our bichon). Most parents with two kids know better than to bring one dog, especially a new edition. He is 13 weeks old and already answers to the name Henry, so picking a new one wasn't cause for disagreement. Personally, I like Spike or like Elle Woods' Legally Blonde pup, Bruiser.


He's mostly house-trained and we're all the way trained. He barks when he wants to play or be picked up, or if he catches sight of himself in a mirror. He's spoiled rotten and a good bed buddy, and just about the cutest little guy I've ever seen. Hard to resist those eyes...

Doll, doll, doll!!! I love him already! Can't wait for Jim to bring him to the office. BTW-I like Spike too, but I'm biased and already have a little Spikey-do! Kristyn

Pretty cute stuff going on here. He's a doll. (Especially love the expression on the little boy's face.)

Henry is adorable for sure, Katie, and seeing the look on my kids' faces when they realized he was ours has made it worth all the early morning potty trips!
