the extraordinary thing about Penny....

The extraordinary thing about Penny is that not only is she affectionate, loving and cuddly, she is FUN.  She likes to play, she likes to walk, she likes to do things with you.  Non-dog owners might not understand how FUN a dog can be.

Before I get to the main point here, I dreamt she and I traveled to Iowa during a flood.  Somebody thought something was wrong with her and called in a helicopter vet....a team of vets that travel by helicopter to remote areas to treat ailing animals.  Does such a thing exist????? Maybe?  PROBABLY? From what I dreamt, the charges started at 1000 dollars...and in my dream, my dog was healthy. But  IT WAS fun to see the helicopter arrive with these 2 vets and their dog to take care of mine....

Yesterday was interesting.  I was at the wine shop asking about an order of mine, which she had forgotten to order.  I didn't really care, this is NOT a matter of life and death...but the owner was  so upset she gave me a bottle of champaigne HOT DAMN!  I refused it 2 times but on the third, Caesar style, accepted... I was blown away by her kindness.  If she was trying to get my loyalty, she succeeded! Then I went to take care of Soupy... she lives across the street and her papa is a painter.  I have not photographed it very well, but he painted a portrait of Penny which blew me away....Penny looks like every beagle in this county, but in this painting he has her smile and her eyes absolutely captured, it makes me SSSOOOOOOO happy!

Oh what a great portrait of Penny. I can tell she's really thrilled. And I hope you toast her with that new bottle! Whow!
