And now, a few words from me:
My name is Henry (Sir Henry if you please), and I’ve had a pretty crappy life until the Humane Society International removed me from the situation I was in. LOYAL took me in, and life has been much better since then, as I have a family that cares about me, and helps me feel better. I’m an older gentleman who has some health issues, but for now I feel pretty OK most of the time. When I don’t, the caring team at Guildwood Village Animal Clinic do their very best to make me feel better. I still enjoy wandering in the yard, and sleeping on my favourite doggy sofa. I love having my ears and head rubbed as it makes me melt into the cushion. It’s fun to bark when my foster brothers and sisters are barking. They can run around like fools chasing squirrels, but I’m a dignified gent who prefers to watch and bark with them.
And now, a few words from my foster mom:
Sir Henry is a trooper. Despite his medical issues, he enjoys each day. His heart melting, sincere eyes look into mine, and I cannot help but turn into a puddle of goo. He is so very forgiving. He does not like the administration of the SubQ fluids, or the pills at all, yet when it’s done, all is forgiven. Henry has his opinions, and like most older gentlemen doesn’t hesitate to express them. Since he is a very slow eater, I put him in the pen so that the other dogs in the household don’t snatch his food away. As soon as he has had enough, he makes a point of letting me know that this pen thing is not his gig, and he wants to bust out of there.
He has been struggling to kick a urinary tract infection and has been through 2 cycles of treatment so far. The first infection led to a hospital stay, where he was on IV fluids + antibiotics for 2 days.
Henry is a very picky eater but has the odd favourite food, which given his weight issues he gets. Amongst these are Dad’s Oatmeal cookies, Ritz low salt crackers (although the full salt Cheddar are way better in his opinion); cooked pasta.. He isn’t particularly fond of his prescription diet, but will eat it most of the time.
Although Henry has not been able to gain weight, he is holding his own, hovering between 7.8 and 8 lbs. Based on his frame, his weight should be more in the 10 to 11lb range.
Henry is about as sweet as can be. A distinguished older gentleman with a heart of gold.
Please wish us well for his ongoing good quality of life.
