Book Review: Surviving Henry

You don't always know what you're getting into when you bring home a puppy. Enter Henry, a boxer who suffers from Supreme Dictator of the Universe Syndrome. He vandalizes his obedience school, leaps through windows, cheats death at every turn, and generally causes his long-suffering owner Erin Taylor Young to wonder what on earth she did that God would send this dog to derail her life.

Through his laugh-out-loud antics and escapades, Henry will steal readers' hearts. Anyone who has ever owned a dog, especially a canine catastrophe like Henry, will enjoy this lighthearted book about a dog who brings new meaning to the concept of unconditional love.

When I first saw this book, my initial reaction was "Oh, another Marley and Me." I'm not going to say that I was wrong, but I will say that even though both books were about "problem puppies", you really can't go wrong with a well written book that makes you laugh, chuckle and just shake your head. It made me very thankful that all of the dogs that we'd had over the years were "normal." I admit that I was hooked from the very first sentence of this book and had a really tough time putting it down. Thank goodness it was a quick read! I highly suggest this one to my dog loving friends. It's cute, fun and an easy read.
