Hiking lovers Cynthia Bennett and her boyfriend wanted a fur buddy to enjoy their adventures with. So Cynthia was sure she wanted a golden retriever mix dog, but when she got to the adoption agency she experienced love at first sight with Henry.
When she went into his pen she could see he was much bigger than the other dogs his age, which was 14 months at that time. Henry loved her as much as she did him because as soon as she stepped in he curled up on her lap and opened his tummy to her for some scratching. Cynthia knew right then and there that Henry will be going home with her.
“I think we only had him for three days when we took him on our first hike,” Bennett said to The Dodo. “He found the steepest, tallest rock around, and he ran up to the top of it to look over the edge.” Since then they having been calling him “little mountain goat.”
But Henry needed a buddy and Cynthia wanted another furball in the house, so they decided to adopt a kitten. They spent 5 months looking for the perfect little rescue kitten that will fulfill their lives and be a buddy to Henry. They finally found a Siamese mix and they named him Baloo.
They introduced the two to each other and they instantly fell in love and started to play and snuggle each other. So automatically Baloo also started to go on hiking adventures with his family. “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.”
