All in the Family
Henry Brock


Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Tess was Henry's Mum. She was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She was found as a mangy, starving stray in Dorset, England a week before she gave birth to a litter of 7 puppies. We were going along to adopt one of the rescue pups (Henry), but we fell in love with Tess and adopted her too. We had 10 happy years with her, before she passed away in March 2006, aged about 16 or 17 years. She was an extrovert and mischievous monkey who was always the centre of attention. Her 'party trick' was a well-timed loud 'burp', used to get attention, deflate pompous speeches, comment on her current state of satisfaction, embarrass us while we were on the phone etc etc. She got a great deal of mileage out of that one! We still miss her and think of her often.

Sorry to hear about Tess, she was definitely a beautiful girl. It is great that you adopted her with Henry. It is so hard when they go but they always have that special place in our hearts.

Adorable. I see where Henry got his good looks from :) I'm so sorry she had to go :( But she will always be remembered in your heart, and Henry will be there to remind you how great Tess was.
