HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENRY!!!
It seems like no time has passed since we brought Henry home and he became part of our family. Now, he is TEN YEARS of age!
I purposely omitted the word ‘old.’
Henry is a happy-go-lucky guy who can hold his own when it comes to ‘zoomies’ in the back yard with brother Jack.
Other than his autoimmune issues and allergies, his veterinarian has given Henry a clean bill of health – no age-related problems are evident at this stage.
He isn’t full speed ahead and mischievous as he once was, but he is still quite a character. Perhaps, the secret to his continued youth is his ability to find the perfect balance between play and meditation.
Henry will lay on his bed, with one of his stuffed hippos between his front paws and in his mouth. With eyes closed, he will rock his head gently from side to side and gently caress his hippo. It is hypnotic and calming to watch.
We did not have time to organize a party as we just returned from a family beach holiday. During our time away, our birthday boy enjoyed daily walks in the sand and paddling in the sea. The perfect way to celebrate!
Thank you to Dog’s Best trend for supplying these beautiful scarves for the occasion. Even though the celebration was low-key, the pups were dressed to the nines in their satin party wear.

The League will not turn any animal away, and in the last year alone, 17,903 pets were adopted, reunited or placed. Further, through spaying, neutering, and owner education they have reduced the number of homeless animals entering their shelters by 27%.

Ten is just a number. We don’t stop playing because we get older, we get older because we stop playing!
Since we have added another pup to our pack, we have joined the ‘extra toy club’ with barkbox. Not that it makes much of a difference; Reese thinks all the toys belong to her. It’s a good thing Henry loves the packaging as much as the contents and both boys are happy with treats. And, not just on Halloween!!!
Thank you barkbox for sending a special ‘Birthday’ celebration hat and treats for the birthday boy.
