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 take on this book:
As an animal lover, especially dogs there was no way that I could look at this cover and not read the book!  Henry is one of those dogs that just loves life, and well also one who seems to find his way into various situations that are often laugh out loud funny, and truly capture the essence of what it truly means to be owned by your dog. Such an easy to relate to story, this book had me reminiscing about my own canines and the puppy stage that caused more than a few mishaps in my own home. The author has a certain way with describing the antics of Henry that I  could honestly visualize his various escapades! Anyone who has ever owned a dog will find this a must read, but honestly if you enjoy laughing out loud while reading you are certainly going to want to read Surviving Henry!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
