1/4/2007 - 3/21/2020Words can't express the loss I feel without you here... Our family said goodbye to our beautiful Henry on Saturday. He was by far the most amazing creature I've ever encountered. He went by several names and was loved by many. Henry, Hendry (in your best Good Fellas voice), Hank, Stinky Dog, Threshold Dog, Potato, My Guardian Angel, My Shadow. He carried me through some of the darkest, most difficult times in my life. Always there, silent, stoic. His only request was a scoop of food and a scratch on the head. He loved his family unconditionally. Our home feels quieter, empty. My heart aches for more time with him, one more squeeze, one more snuggle. He was mine, and I was his.Jessica CronauerDowningtown, PennsylvaniaMarch 23, 2020

“He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way, he rests against my leg; by the way, he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way, he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another woman. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him. And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.” – Gene HillLucy Short - March 24, 2020
I loved walking in the house and getting a Henry Hug!! I always wore black pants when I’d visit and they’d be white in minutes but I didn’t care. Pj would lay on the floor with him and get some lovin without fail. The girls and Emmitt would run back and fourth laughing, chasing him or was he chasing them?! He would always bring a smile to everyone’s face. He just wanted to be loved and there were so many people to walk up to that, with the drop of a hat, would stop in seconds to give some. He didn’t live with us but when we “lived” with him, he would treat us like his family. We love you and will miss you immensely, Henry ❤️ XOHeather McCandless - March 24, 2020
Henry was a sweet, loving ball of fluff. While he was gentle with my kids, he was not shy to push his was into your lap for some scratches. He lived a full life and was loved by many. He will forever have a spot in our hearts <3Stacey Bowen - March 24, 2020

Henry, what can we say. To the most loyal guard of one of my favorite family units—-I know you had a life filled with love and cuddles.

We will miss your presence, your soul and your gentle reminders for pets.

May you find all the treats, beds and bones that you deserve in the plane you find yourself in now. But you have a permanent residence in the hearts of those here.
