Dr. Bonnie Henry got to meet, and play with, one of the two Labrador puppies named after her by staff from BC & Alberta Guide Dogs.

Henry the puppy met his namesake and her team this week, and was able to bringĀ “some perfect puppy cuddles,” BC Guide Dogs said in a tweet.

The puppies — named Bonnie and Henry — were part of a litter of 10 that will all train to be certified guide dogs.

The dogs were named after BC’S Provincial Health Officer because staff at BC & Alberta Guide Dogs believe she embodies the same qualities that guide dogs should have, such as calmness and guidance.

ā€œIt is an honour to have two such adorable namesakes,ā€ Henry said in a news release following the September announcement. ā€œTaking a moment to appreciate the joy of two little puppies is so welcome.ā€
