Henry to the Rescue

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wes) Carter had a big white and black hunting dog that Grandma (Mary) named Henry. She felt that if the Joneses could name their fancy poodle Riley we should have a fancy name for our dog as well. But Grandma didn't like Henry very much. However, Billy loved Henry right from the start. Henry was very gentle with Billy who would sit on him, pour sand over his head, and other such tricks. The only time Henry nipped at Billy was when Billy bit him first.

Anyway, during all the excitement of searching for the little lost boy Henry kept running back and forth and then he would disappear. Finally Grandpa (and Grandma) followed Henry to the Provo River. There Billy sat throwing rocks into the water. The river was very high that year and very swift. Billy could have been in great danger. We all thought Henry was as much of a hero as "Lassie" or "Rin-Tin-Tin."
