July 10, Henry!

And here is Henry, another sweet grey dog, my favorite kind~  I was so drawn to the light on his face, I was honored to paint him!

Henry Blue was a Christmas puppy for our youngest daughter - a sweet Weimaraner who had to grow into his baggy skin.  He quickly became known to all the children in the neighborhood, as he LOVED tennis balls and would return one to anyone who would throw it again!

There was something about this jowly shiny gray dog that people loved - our oldest daughter's college roommates featured a large photo of Henry in the living room of their apartment.

He was able to win over even tiny children who were afraid of big dogs, because he'd drop the ball and wait patiently for them to throw it back to him.  

Henry was a shy dog, slow to warm up to other dogs and people - so you knew that if he wagged and made a fuss, you were pretty special.  He was a very smart, gentle dog with a quirky personality and a great memory -very easy to make you his best friend.  He will be missed extraordinarily!
