This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Henry, a miniature schnauzer that loves sitting outside and the dog park.
Here’s what Henry’s owner, Brooke, had to say about him:
"Henry is a 2-and-three-quarter-year-old miniature schnauzer, much beloved by his family. He was adopted with his brother George at three months old, and they were named for the Kings of England.
Henry is an affectionate dog who is happiest sitting in his yard listening to the birds. He is often spotted doing this next to his orange ball, now referred to as “Wilson” (Castaway). While not a gregarious socialite of the dog park, Henry loves living in the “Big City”. He is especially fond of the water bowl outside of Origins.
Last week Henry was viciously attacked by a PIT BULL in front of the Walgreen's in Clarendon, and he (and we) are greatly indebted to the many people who stopped to help. A very kind lady drove Henry, bleeding heavily, in her super nice Mercedes to ensure he got to the animal hospital as soon as possible. We appreciate all the Arlingtonians who helped break up the dogs and assist us with Henry’s condition. While the old adage “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog” may no longer be uttered in our family, we will stick with “it takes a village” to take care of the ones we love.
