Surviving Henry ~ Review

Surviving Henry
By Erin Taylor Young
   
    Adventures in Loving a
                    Canine Catastrophe....

If you love books about dogs and their antics you need to read Surviving Henry.  And the good news Henry survives the book though he has a few close calls as does the family that he calls his own.

Henry is boxer who just didn't quite fit the breed standard, thus ensuring his life as the family terror make that pet.  What follows are the joys of obedience training gone wrong.  A little incident with a motorized scooter.  And every owner's worst nightmare an encounter with a glass surface.

Henry will make you laugh and bring you to tears.  This is a book that you'll want to share with friends and family (but not necessarily with those contemplating their first puppy).

This book is the author's journey in true love - love that we only truly experience from our Heavenly Father as He sees are flaws and faults and yet chooses to stick with us as we learn to listen to His voice.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through BookFun/TBCN in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book: 
You don't always know what you're getting into when you bring home a puppy. Enter Henry, 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 that God would send this dog to derail her life.

Through his laugh-out-loud antics and escapades, Henry will steal readers' hearts. Anyone who has ever owned a dog, especially a canine catastrophe like Henry, will enjoy this lighthearted book about a dog who brings new meaning to the concept of unconditional love.
