If you're a regular here on The Daily Puglet, I don't need to explain who Henrietta is. Or how important she is to Dutch. But for anyone who doesn't already know, Henrietta is a rubber chicken in a bikini and she is just about the only thing in the world Dutch gets super-excited about. He LOVES Henrietta.
Dutch isn't the only one who has a thing for rubber bikini-wearing chickens. I find Henrietta kind of hard to resist, and pretty much every dog I've ever met has wanted a piece of her. This can cause major problems for Henrietta (top photo) and even bigger ones for Dutch (below).
Henrietta always comes with us to Pug Sunday and all the pugs totally love her. Dutch is very protective, but he's too much of a wimp to stop other dogs from playing with her. Even if the other dogs are little pugs like me. We took these pictures of me and a pug named Yoshi playing with Dutch's beloved Henrietta at last weekend's PugSun. It was Henrietta's last.
Yesterday morning Henrietta lost her head on the beach near the big orange bridge. It happened just after sunrise when a weimaraner we've never met before stole her from Dutch. By the time our humans got involved, it was too late. Henrietta was already in pieces.
My human said there will always be more rubber chickens (I think this was Henrietta #6), but that doesn't mean we're not sad to see Henrietta go.
