One year ago today, after a two day ride from Louisiana to Virginia in a transport truck, they put a scared, sick homeless beetle into my arms. I took him home and called him "Henry".
Today on his anniversary, I was there with the cameral when he awakened from his slumber.

Here he is, eyes just opened. "Mommy, what are you doing?"


"Guess it's time to get up"


"First I need to get my morning stretch and back-rub...ahhh, that's the spot..."

Happy Anniversay, Henry!!

Looks like he's about as comfy as can be -- little did he know what a wonderful home he was coming to this day last year :heart:

Celebratory tummy rubs and kisses from us to Henry!!

Everyday is "Henry Day" around here but today was extra nice because when we took our son to his basketball game for 11:00 am, Henry was able to complete his mid-morning nap on time and sailed right into his late-morning nap with minimal interruption. :biglaugh:

Then Henry got some beef jerky...not that dog kind but the people kind!

Yeah Henry B.! We love him so...... :heart:

I watched an episode of Animal Cops - Houston today that showed the rescue of animals after Hurricane Rita. It was heartbreaking to see what those poor babies went through. I did think of Henry and his rescue while I was watching it. So many of the dogs there were already Katrina rescues waiting for a home when Rita hit.

Congratulations on your adoption day Henry! Chloe says to tell mommy to make you some "casserole!" (dog food mixed with canned Alpo) Here's to many more wonderful years!

Congrats to you & Henry! It would seem that all of us here have a great adoption story to share, & you are now a member of the club! In my case Snapper was my first, as he was a beag/foxterrier & Duke, a purebred beag was adopted by Pop after Snapper was gone. Soon afterward I moved to north Idaho but to my dismay, a beag was a very rare breed here so I had to purchase one from a "hobby breeder" in Moscow. He is still a very healthy & happy beag nearing 15 yrs old! In 1997 Pop adpted Rufus the "mini/toy beag" to keep an aging beag Duke company. Well poor Duke died in late 1999 & Rufus would "cry"/howl" every evening after his supper! Pop adopted Nibbler in early 2001 when he was a year old & they are "best buds" now! When Goober turned 10 I adopted Homer the huge when he was a tiny pup that looked like a beag-mix pup that had been abandoned along with 7 of his siblings & his mother in a horse pasture! Well Goober has done a great job of teaching Homer how to act like a beag & the two of them are "inseperable"! I dread the thought of the day when I lose Goober & Homer will enter the same stage of grief that Rufus did! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Henry says, "thanks and arrooo" for all of the great 1 year anniversary wishes. He also loved the story of Snapper, Duke, Rufus, Nibbler, Goober, and Homer-the-Huge!

I've said it before and I guess I'll say it again, I wish these little guys could talk and tell us where they've been and what they've been through.

The good news is that whatever they've lived through, they are all home now!
