Pennymom Posted June 15, 2016 Share Posted June 15, 2016 Penny came to us during a low time in our lives. For the first time in our adult lives, we were without a dog, and our home seemed empty. We felt adrift, without purpose. Along came Penny to fill our home and our hearts. All we were told was her name and that she liked to give hugs, but that was enough for her daddy-to-be to jump in the car to go bring her home. They were inseparable in those early days, going everywhere together. Penny never met a stranger, and approached all kinds of people with a smile and a waggling head. I was more reticent about this strange and elegant creature and vowed to keep my distance so she could become her daddy's girl. Until that faithful night when she climbed in bed with me and tucked her needle nose into my neck. There was no resisting her charms, and Penny had plenty - from her 'copter tail to her champion roaching to her "spinny zooms." But what I will miss most is her special greeting for me, where she would put her cheek against mine and come in close for a hug. Penny succumbed to a mystery liver ailment, despite our best efforts. It's so hard to know we couldn't save her and had to let her go. She has lots of friends and fans who are missing her, none more than me. She was practically perfect and certainly perfect for our family. She was the most beautiful hound ever and our time with her was far too short. Quote Image removed, not within Signature Guidelines.
