   Leave a bone for Henry VIII

Hanky Panky, Oh Henry, Hank, Hankerchief

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

September 30th 1996

He likes to sit in the car in the driveway and won't be coaxed out til he's good and ready!

Anyone trying to make him get out of the car when he doesn't want to yet!

Favorite Toy:
Nyla Bone

Favorite Food:
Treats such as Milk Bones, Scooby Snacks, etc. Used kleenex's out of trask can. We simply have to close bathroom doors or we find evidence of his pillaged booty in the back yard!

Favorite Walk:
With his dad (my Paw) in Nova Scotia in the summer.

Best Tricks:
Not going to the bathroom for three days cuz he didn't know he could go anywhere else but our yard. See his diary below for the rest of the story!

Arrival Story:
He is actually my Maw and Paw's dog but since I'm a young thing that cannot leave my Mother (and Father) I count him as one of my babies since we share the same woof (roof)! But how they came to get him is my sisters husband had an English Shepherd as a boy & thusly they decided to get this breed and chose a female they named Chessie because she loves watching trains going by. Well, my Dad & Mom (especially my Dad) fell in love with her but my Mom said "no dogs" (this was before I brought my 4 to live here). So my Dad said "Oh, we'll just go look at the puppies" & my Mom agreed to just "go look". So I said to my brother "I'm bummed cuz they're just going to look at the puppies" & my brother said "no one just goes to look at puppies, they'll bring one back"! And for once he was right! They came back towing (not literally, he was in the car with them) Henry!

I thought up the name Henry VIII after The King of England since our Henry is also English and is the eighth dog we ever had!

Henry VIII Has Lost His Head!

To Pee or Not To Pee, that is the Question! (or Henry- VIII is Bordering on Madness)!

When Henry was a young pup my folks loaded him up in the old Volvo station wagon that I've since inherited (but hey, I swear I'm going to get my '75 Dodge Dart running again!) and headed up north to their summer home in Nova Scotia. Henry had never been away from our Northern Virginia home for any amount of time so naturally he deduced that one should not potty any where except his own back yard. So for 3 days (my folks take their time when driving north) Henry did not take a pit stop even though he was offered plenty of them. He finally let loose at the Canadian Border to the tune of about 5 minutes ( this is the approximate time it took him to empty his bladder) and has never done this trick since in his subsequent visits to our neighbors up North!
