Henry owed his non-standard fur color to a quirk of genetics but he had a full measure of the haughty attitude common to his breed. In his prime, he considered it to be his job to provide security services and intruder alerts for the Van Haste household and he pursued these tasks with zeal.
He had a long life by the standards of his species and it was full of canine satisfactions. His last years were of good quality and his final illness lasted just a few days. Henry is survived by his "pack", Rich, Pat and Frank, who are left now with a treasury of memories and a feeling of something missing from our lives that will persist for some time.
