   Leave a bone for Henry

Henry Tough Tucker, Ohhhh Henry, Happy Henry, Baby Boy, Henry the Ham

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

October 7th 2001

A ride in the car. To be the center of attention. He Loves his big brother "Teddy". He has a sweetheart "Annie", a friend's little Malte-Poo.

Whenever I give Teddy extra attention, Henry gets a pure panicked look on his face and runs up my chest and lays across my shoulders.

Favorite Toy:
His num-num. It is this little brown squirell with a removable squeker. When he was a puppy he use to carry it outside with him and would go potty with it still in his mouth and trot back in still carrying it. I have bought several more.

Favorite Food:
He is a little picky. He loves his raw food medallions by Natures Variety.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere as long as he is leading the way.

Best Tricks:
Lay-down. Believe it or not he graduated obedience school.

Arrival Story:
I called Teddy's breeder and I could not believe Teddy's parents had puppies. I had pick of the litter again.. with six puppies. I went to pick out a little girl Shih Tzu puppy for Teddy. I could not decide between the two girls. I went back three times. This little boy kept coming to my lap and would just hunker down and not let me move him aside so I could pick up another puppy. He was so expressive and determined. I talked to all my friends and followed my heart and finally picked HIM! My favorite thing when I was a little girl in the 70's was this stuffed dog made by Animal Fair named "Henry".

What can I possibly say about Henry.......He has an "Its all about ME" and an "In Your Face" attitude. He has a Napoleon complex big time. I call him "my little something else". He is easy to pick on like..."the lights are on but no-one is home". He doesn't listen very well. He took about three months longer than Teddy to potty train. Teddy took three days. He is completely fearless which makes me keep a closer eye on him. He keeps Teddy & I entertained. I am always laughing at something Henry is doing or has done. He loves to dig in the middle of yard and I took a picture of my little brown dog covered in dirt and my sweet sweet Teddy just looking like an angel; My Henry is just such a Hoot. It is so funny to see two adorable Shih Tzu faces at the sliding glass door waiting to come in. He is completely different than his angelic brother Teddy but I just love him so. People think I have a favorite and its Teddy but I don't know what in the world I would do without my Henry Tough Tucker. All he has every been told was "I love you so much!" and "You are just so cute" No wonder he has a little attitude.

Forums Motto:
It's all about ME

Mama is going to take me to pet smart today to buy me a NEW toy!! I really don't need one. I've got too many already and both my toy baskets are overflowing but don't tell her that. :)

Teddy was gone overnight getting his surgery and Mama thought I'd be real upset because Teddy and I are so incredibly close. I didn't really notice he was gone. Geez, it's not my fault. The world revolves around me and I just can't help That.

Mama called me a "Doofus" for not noticing my big brother was gone. The one who always cleans my face in the morning and who always looks out for me.


Mama made me pay attention for ONE WHOLE HOUR and I was so- TIRED!!!

I started basic obedience class last night. I graduated that class over 3 years ago but Mama thinks I should start from the beginning. I have a very short attention span and it took alot out of me to pay attention and LISTEN to my Mama for ONE whole HOUR. I was wiped out by the end and I slept all the way home.
