Passionate hikers Cynthia Bennett and her boyfriend adopted their pooch Henry back in 2014. Initially, Bennett wished to get a golden retriever mix, but then she stumbled upon Henry at an adoption event. He was just 3 months old, but at the moment much bigger compared to the other dogs of similar age. The moment she came into Henry’s pen he immediately curled up into her lap, went belly up and flipped his head over her arm. That was the time she realized he was the one.
“I think we only had him for three days when we took him on our first hike,” Bennett explained to The Dodo. “He found the steepest, tallest rock around, and he ran up to the top of it to look over the edge.” That’s why they began calling him their “little mountain goat.”
A couple of months back the couple determined that they’d love to have one more pet in their family. Bennett truly desired a rescue kitty, and after several months of looking around the animal shelters, they eventually found a Siamese kitten mix called Baloo. They introduced the kitty to their pooch and Baloo basically fell in love with Henry – all he desired was to play and cuddle with him.
It wasn’t much time until Baloo began going on their first adventures together. “I get a lot of questions about how we got him used to it. But he really loves it. He really wants to go outside,” Bennett said. “If I touch Henry’s leash, Baloo will start screaming at the door.”
