Henry (September 7, 1996 - August 10, 2006)

Henry, one of the best companions anyone could ever ask for, has left this mortal coil.

I wrote about Henry in What's Happening to Our Golden Retrievers? A photo of him is in the upper right-hand corner of the photo montage with my original post.

My sister penned this ode to her dear friend:

Henry, you were a damn fine dog,
And will be sorely missed.
Your gifts to the world were far too many
To ever try to list.

You were so dear, you cheered the world
You sniffed and snuffed and smiled.
Your back was strong, your bark was deep
Your heart was sweet and mild.

We hope you are on to the next adventure
That next great smelling trail.
With your golden fur, your shining brown eyes
And your ever-wagging tail.
