The past five months have been a whirlwind with our new pup. I have questioned more than once why we ever decided to get a puppy; let alone a male one. He pees everywhere he’s not supposed to. He is always on the chase, and looking to create mischief. He is a little perv who likes to snuggle in ladies’ bosoms and touch their bare legs.

But despite all of it, he’s been the newest love of our lives. He steals our hearts away every day. He’s the best kind of funny: the kind of guy that doesn’t know it, but he’s hilarious. He is covered in baby fat and is so squishy and huggable. Did I mention he’s now FIFTEEN pounds?! Big boy.

Bottom line: We love our little Hank SO much. His presence in our lives is therapy for the soul.

Henry at 2 months when we brought him home.

And here he is today (with his red chew bone).

    Aw, he's so cute! I definitely know how you feel! We adopted our puppy at 8 mos back in December. We have had many ups and downs with her, and also questioned whether we were ready or not, but she is the love of our lives. I couldn't imagine life without her, and we're now on the lookout for a 2nd pup to add to our family. I'm so excited to save another life, and to add more life to our home. Pups are a lot of work, but they make your life so much happier!

    Adorable! I do agree that boy dogs can be a bit more rambunctious and more difficult to train. However, the best thing about them is that male dogs tend to stay puppies forever (at least in their temperaments), while females "mature" and can even get moody at times (just like their human counterparts).

    @maylove: Ooooh! Good luck with a second adoption! We had a good experience with adopting Henry, and, like you, will continue to support pet rescue 🙂
    @Geek in Heels: OMG, YES! That is true. Our older dog, Emma, can be moody and has a princess attitude. I don't think Henry has a moody bone in his body 🙂
