i adopted henry today (fka alfred). a special friend introduced us. this old pup has had an incredibly rough life as far as i can tell. he has limited vision and little or no hearing. he struggles to walk. his sense of smell is good; he loves peanut butter cookies. he has soulful, beautiful brown eyes. i think there is something very special in there. i know there is. i hope he will share it with me. but if he doesn’t i will of course understand. i want to make whatever time he has left happy, comfortable, content. our first day together and he is sleeping like he hasn’t slept in a long time. i am eager to know him, really know him . . .
