Happy 3rd 'Gotcha' Day Henry!
Three years ago today we made the best decision we've ever made, when we brought Henry home with us from the rescue centre. He was a very different dog then - skin and bone, bad skin, infected ears, sad, scared and really confused. He hated doors being closed, had separation anxiety and hadn't been socialised with other dogs. At the time I was suffering badly with depression and anxiety, and when I looked in his eyes I could see the same fear and uncertainty looking back at me. We bonded instantly.
It must have been so confusing for him. Left alone for weeks, then dropped at a boarding kennels and never collected. There must have been so many thoughts going through his head, wondering what he'd done wrong and why his family had deserted him.
This is Henry on the day we collected him. He's altered so much since then and has blossomed into the most amazing dog I've ever known. We are so lucky to have him in our lives.
Happy 'Gotcha Day' Henry!!
