We are so pleased to share that Spike, Henry's attempted but unsuccessfulBFF has indeed found his new Forever Home! We are so happy and relieved (and a tad sad that it was not our own). But here is a little update about Spike that his new family has thankfully allowed us to share. Spike has a family full of besties now. He has a canine buddy, Veruca, a French Mastiff, who also happens to have just one eye! The big softy is a bit of worry wart when it comes to thunder boomers so, Spike has already helped her weather a storm. They battened down the hatches, huddled together and made it through together waiting for the skies to clear! There are also a team of kitties (3) in Spike's home and they are all working out those boundaries to which cats and dogs must adhere.
As we had hoped, Spike also has a home where not only furry creatures are his friends, Spike also has a kid friend! Yay! A child sized playmate will make Spike a happy camper, we are sure. Spike's people brother is a 10ish year old guy who is thoroughly enjoying the new arrival! Spike's new people take him and the other pup on 2 walks a day. We are sure this right up Spikes's alley! And he's taking naps and sleeping in a big bed overnight! It is just all working out splendidly. We just cannot be happier!
You will need to turn your volume up for this video to get the full effect. Cupid, sleeping like a sweet little baby, squeaks in her sleep. Without the sound, the video almost just looks like a photograph since you can barely see her moving. But with the volume cranked you can her the little princess making her sleepy noises.
Lately we have been recapping how well Henry is making a comeback. Right after that post, we took another of our many joy rides. Henry has always been a head of the window kind of guy. Well, he's really enjoying his renewed love of car rides. When played with sound, you can hear the Huey Lewis & the News's 80's song "The Heart of Rock & Roll" or as we were singing it in our head that day, "The Heart of Hanky Doo!"
For those faint of heart about Henry possibly falling out of the window, maybe you should not watch. (He does not fall out but we know that this makes Henry's G'Ma very nervous but please trust that there is nothing that would ever make us drop him. (If we were hit by another car then we'd be toast anyway....but really, we can't NOT give him this pleasure. He is at his happiest here.
In honor of Memorial Day, we would like to share some old photos of the gang decked out in their patriotic gear. Happy Memorial Day to all. Many thanks to those who fought and continue to fight for our freedom.
We took Henry out to eat again at The Daily Grind. (It will probably be our last trip there, though. It really is not healthy for us. Or for him. It left him with bad poops. #SadFace) But why I am sharing these 2 photos is because I think one is funny and to get feedback on the other. In the one photo Henry, with his paw on the table, literally looks like he is requesting better service. That cracks me up.
It's the second photo is the questionable one. Should we have blurred out his privates?! Seriously, Henry, do you need to get so excited about a hamburger?! Do any of ya'll's boys have this issue? I mean, we are happy that Henry is on the upswing, but really? He should have some manners. Especially in public! Good thing the crowd that night was on the other side of the path!
We have spoken before about the "bonuses" of Henry being blind and also having dull hearing. Here you can watch him go through the car wash with barely a care in the world. When he had his senses, he would pitch a fit and try to escape the car. Now he seems to enjoy it!
