MEET HENRY - VICKIE'S NEWEST FAMILY MEMBER

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/

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope you enjoy meeting Henry. I think he is a cutie and a great addition to Vickie's family.

It's in the 80's here and is going to be that until for a while. Really enjoy it.

Good Morning Marilyn! I am smiling at my own post! Ha! I just love our dogs. Thanks for sharing our joy in them too Marilyn.
It has been in the 90's here all weekend and still. Now it is raining.

Good Morning friends! Thank you so much you warm my heart. No.We bought Henry from a breeder near our city. They had wanted him to be a stud dog. He is too timid and was unsuccessful at that. They no longer wanted him! I could never sell my dog. But I suppose many breeders are like that. We are just so happy he is happy here with us. He honestly is just so precious. He is sleeping on my lap right now. ;)

Hi Vickie,
I am so glad you got Henry. I could never sell my dog either.

A friend of mine got her chihuahua because the breeder was going to throw her out in the streets. He had tried to breed her and all the puppies died so they were going let her louse on the streets. It just happened that my friend's husband had to go there on business. When he heard what the man was going to do - he took her.
She had most of her life in cage and didn't know how to walk on their carpet. When my friends got her, Penny was spoiled rotten until the day she died.
