Henry's first Thanksgiving went very well! Henry has been to Grammy's house many times, but this was the first time he was there during the hustle and bustle of a holiday. The house was packed and there was lots of activity in the kitchen. And wouldn't you know that is exactly where you would find Henry.
Henry quickly figure out that the kitchen was where all the action was and that's where he needed to be. He did a good job of not being too much in the way, but being enough in the way so that everyone knew he was there. Just incase anything needed taste testing or anything like that.
During dinner, Henry parked himself right by the table. He made his way around the table a few times to see if anyone had anything they wanted to share with him.
After dinner, Henry thought about watching some football, but couldn't quite settle since there was so much going on. He hung out in the kitchen while the big cleanup was happening.
With all the new experiences and all the people to talk to and get pettings from Henry did not sleep all day. He was up for a good 6-7 hours straight and for a 12.5 year old pug that's no small feat!

Every time we took Luna to the beach, she inevitably ended up with at least one sandspur stuck in her paw. (Her first trip to the beach might be an exception. Honestly, I don't remember much else after she took home most of the sand on the beach in her eyes.)
I don't know what it was about her that made her a sandspur magnet. The boys would run and play on the same beach and not getting any of the evil sandspurs stuck in their paws.
However, that all changed on our last trip to the beach. On Sunday, Henry got not only one, but two sandspurs stuck in his paw! I guess someone needs to carry on the sand spur tradition.

It hasn't been our best year, but we are very thankful that we get to celebrate this Thanksgiving with Henry and at Grammy's house nonetheless. I'll let you know how Henry does at his very first Thanksgiving. I've already heard rumors that some turkey is going to be reserved just for him!

On Sunday we decided to venture out to a nearby park that has awesome hiking trails. We hadn't been to this park in years so we thought Henry might really enjoy it. Plus, Henry has always loved to take walks through woodsy areas and these trails definitely fit the bill.
On our way out to the car, we realized that it was a lot more humid than we originally thought. Henry, humidity and long walks don't always go well together. We almost scrapped our trip, but we thought, Henry would be able to take a short walk on the trails. Plus, Henry had a big day at the beach the day before, so he wouldn't be up for too long of a walk anywhere we went.
As soon as we parked the car, Henry was happy to be on his old favorite trails. As predicted, we only took a short jaunt on the trails, but Henry was one happy pug!

Saturday was a pretty dreary day by Florida standards. It was raining off and on and was quite windy. With the so, so weather, we thought it would be a great day to take a little trip to the beach
The great thing about going to the beach when the weather is less than ideal is that we pretty much have the entire beach to ourselves. And this visit proved no different than our other crappy weather beach days.
Henry didn't care what the weather was like. He was happy to feel the sand between his paws. He walked the entire dog beach section and since it was low tide we were able to trek to a part of the beach that we aren't able to access very often. That was his favorite part, of course. It was his big moment to stray off the beaten path.
Considering that it was windy on the mainland, it was super windy on the beach. I think this big gust of wind almost blew Henry over! It was a warm breeze though so that helped.

After Benny and Luna passed, Henry has been trying to have Cupid join his pack. So far, Cupid has been sending him mixed messages.
Cupid is more than happy to be part of Henry's pack when it comes time to eat. Whenever we feed Henry, Cupid comes right up and eats right next to Henry just like Benny and Luna used to do.
But, when it comes to snuggling and lounging around, this is the best Cupid can do. In her mind, they are totally cuddling right now.
