Cynthia felt she may be over-posting photos of her dog, Henry, on her personal Instagram, and started a dedicated account for him. Stunning snapshots of hikes in all kinds of weather attracted thirty thousand followers over three years.

But recently, that number has exploded to almost 600 hundred thousand – beyond anything Cynthia ever expected. The catalyst for this intense Internet love was the introduction of Baloo, the kitty.

Henry, a rescue, is a mix of high energy breeds: Shepherd, Husky, Boxer, Staffordshire Terrier, Aussie.  He loves his adventures but shows signs of extreme separation anxiety when Cynthia and Andre are at work. It got to the point that Henry wouldn’t even eat.
