Surviving Henry: A Book Review

About The Book:

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.

My Review:

In the last four years that i have been a dog owner, my family and I have had some very interesting experiences with our Boston Terrier/Pug named Murphy! He definitely keeps us on our toes and we could not imagine life without him.

The author of Surviving Henry also feels this way as seen in the book. She writes with humor and wit and you will laugh and find yourself nodding your head in agreement to many of her thoughts and feelings about having a dog as a pet. 

It is a delightful, quick and authentic read that will be endearing to all lovers of dogs and pets in general.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
