Henry... is a Beagle. Henry is currently being fostered in Tennessee. Henry is coming to New Hampshire. Henry is coming to our house to stay FOREVER! In about 8 days we will meet up with the transport that will be bringing a number of rescued dogs to their new owners up here in Northern New England.Visit their site at:Patriot Labs All Breed Rescue to find out more about the wonderful volunteers that work to find loving homes for rescued dogs.

Our first Beagle, ,Winston the Wonderhound, is the subject of the online story I try to update when I can. He was a wonderful adoptee from an animal shelter in NJ. We have missed him as you can imagine and it has taken us a long time to finally decide on bringing a new doggie into our home. Henry is not interested in hunting...neither are we, we just want to welcome him into our home and let him enjoy the beautiful lakes, woods, and mountains with us.

Our decision to adopt a rescued dog was an easy one for us. There are so many deserving pets out there that need good homes. If you are looking for a pet for yourself or your children, investigate your local or regional animal shelter and find the perfect match.

I just wanted to really thank Ginger for giving Henry a new chance for life!! We spend hours daily as volunteers to find homes for dogs that were left behind in high kill shelters....most for no good reason whatsoever. Henry had 48hrs of time...if one of our volunteers had not stepped in both Henry and Harvey (his brother- still looking for a home) would have been euthanized. It means so much to us to see a dog like Henry going to such a happy home. I love the illustrations Ginger does and can't wait for Henry stories :)

Thank you very much for your kindness, Ginger!!! Henry will bring a lot of love and joy with him!! He is a truly lucky dog. What a change for him. Adopters like Ginger make this world a better place. Astrid

Thanks everyone. We are as anxious as if we were expecting our fourth child. It has been 3 years since Winston finished his life on earth, and we have finally turned the corner that will let us fall in love with a new doggie ... forever, again.
