Ask Duke & Henny: Reporting for Duty!

Hello to all the kids of Trinity Church! Your buddy Duke, here. I want to introduce to you a new friend, Henny. Yay, Henny! She’s the new dog of Pastor Eileen. Let’s have her tell you her story.

Hi, everybody! I am so excited to be a part of the Trinity Church family. I’ve started coming to work sometimes and I really like meeting people. Everyone is so nice!

I was adopted by Pastor Eileen and her family in April. I was up for adoption from the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation. When my family came to look for a dog to adopt, I went right up to my dad, put my paws and head on his chest and gave him a big hug. (Don’t tell them that I picked them; they think they picked me!)

Here’s a picture of me. Do you like my ears? I could totally play the role of the wolf in a Little Red Riding Hood play, couldn’t I? “The better to hear you with, my dear!” The reason I have cool ears is because I am half German Shepherd. The other half of my dog relatives were all different kinds of dogs, including a Jack Russell. That’s where I get my ability to jump really well. My mom says she’s going to teach me to catch a Frisbee one day.

Do you go to school? I’ll be going to school soon. My parents tell me I need to learn some manners. I just turned nine months old, so it’s time for class. I already know how to sit on command, but that’s about it. There’s so much to learn, isn’t there?

Do you have a question to ask Duke or me? We would love to answer your questions about God, the church or anything else. Here’s where you can send it:

Remember our motto: Paws for Jesus!
