are certainly living the dream. Suki the adventurous Bengal cat
was one such example, now there are two more joining the list—Colorado-based Henry the dog and Baloo the cat
The canine-feline pair
belong to avid hikers Cynthia Bennett and her boyfriend. They adopted Henry back in 2014 at an adoption drive. Bennett revealed that she’d initially yearned for a golden retriever mix, but was completely won over when Henry made himself comfortable in Bennett’s lap by going belly up, and resting his head on her arm. Even though Henry was only 14 weeks old at the time, he was already considerably larger than the other pups of the same age.
Bennett told The Dodo
, “I think we only had him for three days when we took him on our first hike…He found the steepest, tallest rock around, and he ran up to the top of it to look over the edge.” Hence his nickname ‘little mountain goat’.
The couple recently
added another member to the family—a Siamese kitten mix that they had adopted from a shelter and named Baloo. You can probably say it was love at first sight, seeing as how Baloo immediately took to Henry, and could not stop playing or cuddling with the pup.
Now, Henry and Baloo
go on hikes together, and their escapades are captured for sharing on Instagram account @henrythecoloradodog
“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,” explained Bennett said. “If I touch Henry’s leash, [Baloo] will start screaming at the door.”
