"Surviving Henry," by Erin Taylor Young

"Surviving Henry," by Erin Taylor Young


Sometimes you seek out love. And sometimes it broadsides you.
You don't always know what you're getting into when you bring home a puppy. You hope for laughs and cuddles, long walks and a wagging tail. And sometimes you get . . . Henry.

Henry is a boxer who suffers from Supreme Dictator of the Universe Syndrome. He vandalizes his obedience school, leaps through windows, cheats death at every turn, and generally causes his long-suffering owner Erin Taylor Young to wonder what on earth she did wrong that God would send this dog to derail her life.

But this rogue torpedo of a dog wasn't sent to torment his owner--well, not just to torment her. Through all the hair-pulling and questioning of her own sanity, Erin learns something very powerful from Henry, a dog who brings new meaning to the concept of unconditional love.

Through his laugh-out-loud antics and jaw-dropping escapades, Henry will careen into your life and steal your heart. 


The first two sentences of this book are: "Our dog has special needs, the greatest being the need for a lobotomy.  After that, he could use a good dose of Prozac."  You know when you have read that this book is going to be fun.  It is a laugh out loud, tears rolling down your face fun, but it does have a more serious side to it at times as well.  You can't help but love Henry, and his antics well lets just say, Erin and her family have endless patience!!

I love Henry's relationship with Angel; I guess that's why Angel does what he does for a living.  If you are an animal lover you will adore this book.  This book would make a perfect gift.  Henry is one in a million that's for sure.

Stars out of 5 : 5 Pets are more than pets they are mini children and you love them as much as any member of the family, regardless of what they get up to.  This book shows you that in spades.  I can't say enough good things about this book.  Would I want to be Henry's owner, heck no, but I wouldn't mind being his adopted Grandparent!!!
