The Henderson’s are a lively, grand family! But, this family of 10 is anything but chaotic. It is a well-oiled machine. We first met the Henderson’s in the spring of 2011 as they had just added two bunnies, Skip and Buttercup to their family. When you review any list of suggested “starter pets” for kids, you realize the Hendersons have hit the top 5; fish, hamster, rabbit, turtle. But in March of this year they finally reached the pinnacle, the moment they had all been preparing for, they got a dog!
While technically Sadie is Isabel’s dog, the entire family fell in love. So much that they decided to add another puppy to the mix. William had many pets growing up, but mostly dogs. His best friends were two standard poodles named Sadie and Sam and as a tribute to them they decided to name their first pups Sadie and Sammy.
Sammy is their most recent addition, and at just 8 weeks old, was only home 24 hours before this photo was taken. Andrew takes credit for picking out both pups.
The biggest argument between siblings these days seems to be who gets to hold the puppy! These kids are ready and willing to taking care of the pet crew, and have developed a great love and respect for animals. William and Monie have laid a wonderful foundation. The Henderson home is full of love, fur, and whisker kisses.
