Hello again! Our friend Marilyn has asked me to pop on here once more. This time to tell you about our latest arrival, Henry. =)
Henry is a tiny toy poodle. He is apricot in color. Henry is 3 1/2 years old. He weighs 4 lbs. He is so very sweet. We tease and say that Henry was born to cuddle. That is what he believes is his job in life! He is the definition of lap dog. ;)
Mabel,our 4 year old, grey poodle, wasn't all that interested in Henry in the beginning. She has now accepted him though. You may have read the post I did here some months back about our Mabel. Mabel now has 6 slipped discs. She is on medications from the veterinarian to control the pain and help her live a good life. She cannot use steps. She does walk and she is happy. She tolerates Henry's constant cuddling. ;)
Due to Mabel's poor back condition, she is less active. Henry seems to understand this now. Every day I, my husband, or one of our three teens play with Henry. He is small, but oh so filled with energy. I think it is because he curls up on so many laps all day. Then he zips through the yard with the kids. He loves to have someone chase him. Then he turns and chases you! He also loves stuffed, squeaky toys.
We have had Henry for almost three months now. He is well loved here. Both our toy poodles bring us such joy.
Thank you Marilyn for letting me share about Henry and Mabel here. For anyone who wants more, my blog site is: http://astitchersstory.blogspot.com/
