O'Henry The Great Troublemaker
my first dog and definitely one of the "once in a lifetime"
Briards. He came to us one fall day in 1998 as a funny, warm,
cuddly fur toy and, although he did grow in size (all the way to
27 1/2 inches at the shoulder and 100 lbs of sheer power), he
never really changed. You can read Liz's story of our Henry in
Hall of Fame page, but for my family his story has a few
more twists. Henry is our first in many ways. He is our first
dog, our first Briard, our first producer... He is also our
first Briard love. Oh and what LOVE it is! This magnificent boy
gave us so much! He has enriched our life with so much laughter
and so much warmth. He gave us a new passion and brought into
our life new fabulous friends. He sired magnificent children and
he convinced me that he and I must hike in the woods every day
for at least an hour (which is something my husband is still
never a show dog and he never received any official titles (his
children are doing it for him), but he did once receive the
unofficial title of The Troublemaker and it stuck. He certainly
lived up to that title!!! Be careful what you name your puppy.
Henry is the living example that dogs do live up to their names.
you see here is a very fare representation of our clown Henry.
He loves to
make us laugh. Ever since he learned that he can impress people
with his two-legged sit, he never really returned to walking on
all fours...... My husband lovingly calls Henry our “missing
Henry, it is a
pleasure to be owned by you.
