Jasper and Ali

Meet Ali.  She is a pretty little girl.  She lives in South Texas with our son Todd and his family - his wife Gloria and their girls Nikki, Julia and Elaine.

Meet Jasper too!  Jasper is a beautiful boy - a cross between possibly a greyhound and a blue heeler.

The Henningsen family has become quite full of canine grandkids!  Totaling 6 in all!  We have such fun with them.  Jasper and Ali love to run and play catch.  Ali especially is a good fielder and can catch any ball thrown to her - high - low - fast or slow.  Oh did I mention - she only plays catch with yellow tennis balls and don't try to fool her or pamper her by buying special "doggie toys" for her.   She knows the difference and will only chase the yellow tennis balls!   Jasper is the big brother, and very dedicated Henningsen family watch dog.  He spends much of his day paroling the fence "talking" to the neighbor dogs or anyone suspicious in the neighborhood.  

Both Jasper and Ali are lucky too and if they could talk would tell you how glad they are to have been rescued by their new family.  Both dogs were found locally at rescues.  We personally have not gone through a rescue center to get our own two dogs, but we think it is just the most rewarding thing to do!   

"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made."
 Roger Caras

For Jasper, Ali, Molly, Roy, Dodger, and Zeus

  1. Silly how much they become part of the family, isn't it? But those are some cute grand-pups. :)
