Meet Henry

The circumstances surrounding Henry’s birth portend, uniqueness...okay, trouble. Born to Champion show dog parents, Henry is pure perfection in form and markings, with a built in look-at-me prance destined for Westminster.

He has everything it takes to be the next canine star. Everything except two properly descended boy parts. End of show career. Beginning of life as a disaster-prone canine catastrophe with megalomaniac tendencies.

Hobbies include distressing wood floors, barking at the mail truck, hopping about the yard (because he will one day fly into the tree and catch those mangy squirrels), and half-baked suicide attempts.
