Meet our January Pet of the Month, Sir Henry. An AKC registered English bulldog whose father was a champion show dog. Henry is a very delightful pooch who loves attention.
When he is not searching for people, attention or food he spends the rest of his time napping. As a guest of Ambrosia, Sir Henry enjoyed wasting the days away sitting on the front porch of Flemings Veranda and meeting new people passing by.
He loved our poolside breakfast buffet, especially the bacon…it's his favorite treat! Per Sir Henry a donation will be made to Reef Relief.
