Still Surviving Henry: The Untold Stories! By Erin Young

I was hooked from the first time I read Surviving Henry so when I saw another book about this lovable canine disaster, I couldn’t’ wait to read it! I found it as hilarious as the first one!
There is no doubt that Henry has not slowed down in his antics and challenging his family to keep on their toes. I love humor and we all need lots of it with the way the world is today. There are few books that can make me laugh out loud and Ms. Young’s is one of those.
Some reading the book might think, “Oh my! Why don’t’ they just get rid of him?” Not me! I totally get the Young’s and devotion to Henry. Our family has had a few fur babies like this though not as extreme. It goes past them being a pet. They are very much loved, four legged family members.
This book went deeper, past the laughter, and into the heart of the author and thousands of other animal lovers. There is a deep compassion and sensitivity toward our pets, God’s creatures, with which He has entrusted us.
I saw myself in Ms. Young. No matter how difficult, inconvenient, or expensive, our canine family member is worth is all. I related to her desire to help other animals in need and asking myself why I got involved after it turned into a big fiasco. Because once I began that journey I couldn’t just turn away. I had to see it through until the precious little life was in safe and loving hands.
I loved her heartfelt lessons God was teaching her through Henry. I know I have learned many from my canine companions. Her message at the end of the book to treasure every moment with these special gifts from God truly touched me. I have thought of it often. No matter how much trouble they cause, it cannot be compared with the joy, laughter, companionship and love they bring us.
Another incredible book by Ms. Young. I could give it 6 stars if I could. Thank you Erin!
