Penny turns 3

Pennybirthday02Well, what to say.  Penny remains the most high strung dog we’ve ever owned.  She has settled down some.  She doesn’t play-bite as often as she used to.  She still gets overly excited when guests arrive and often pees on the floor as well as invading their space with over-the-top dog energy.  She still snuggles up to us with a toy or bone and then growls if we pet her.  She still counter-surfs for food daily.  After pulling a tupperware container off the counter and eating the entire batch of cookies inside, we began keeping her in the garage when we are out.  She’s got a cozy bed in there and it’s nice to come home to a kitchen which has not been ransacked by the dog.  Despite how much trouble she is, we still love her.  She’s got a sweet spirit which is overjoyed to be part of our family.  Happy birthday, Penny!Pennybirthday01dsc_0041Little Penny as a puppy.  (Doesn’t even look like the same dog!)

    HBD, miss energy!
    I thought at Christmas that she is better! Impressed at Christmas that Rob has taught her some commands–and she does them!
    Such a sweet dog–just give her 5 more years!

      I took her to puppy school and taught her the commands.
