Surviving Henry: Adventrues in Loving a Canine Catastrophe

Erin Taylor Young


About the Book:


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.

My Review:


Who doesn’t love a good story about a dog? I am a dog lover and so is my daughter and I knew this was the book for both of us to read. Henry is a boxer who is like all dogs, King of the World; nothing will stop him from doing what he wants to do. I loved Henry from the first minute I picked up the book. This is book will give you a much needed laugh and have people looking at you like your crazy (if you choose to read it around others). I don’t want to give too much away with this review, so go and pick up a copy today, I promise you will not be disappointed and it’s a great book that you can pass along to others.


Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review.
