John Henry - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from The Wedding Date.

The Wedding Date: I was running late for a wedding. That particular day, I was sad because it was the 6 month anniversary of the passing of my beloved childhood dog, Angel, of whom I had spent a beautiful 16 years. Everyone asked, "Will you get another dog?" My answer was always a sure and certain "No." Well, 2 years and 65lbs later, I am thankful for running late that day. God is amazing in the fact that when your heart hurts, he sends you exactly what you need on the most perfect day. It was on that day that I saw JH on the side of the road. And if you're wondering, the answer is yes, I still went to the wedding. He's been the cutest wedding date I've ever had. :)
