New Kid on the Block…

18 Mar
Penny's First Day

Penny’s First Day

Hello! Meet Penny, aka Ms. Moneypenny aka Penelope, our new family member and rescue dog. I have been way behind with reading my WordPress friend’s – foodie or otherwise – blogs due to this new adorable furkid.

She’s an unconfirmed Australian Shephard/Border Collie mix rescue dog, and full of energy as the day is long! She’s quite a hand-full and we are having to spend quite a bit of time acclimating her to her new environment and getting to know our beloved Hannah Banana rescue dog, who we’ve had since she was a year old. Hannah is almost 13 years old now, but it’s nice that the new kid on the block has a “mentor” so to speak to teach her manners and household rules. This new little ball of energy is a year and a half old, but has lots of training (and running) in her future.

Penny Day 2

Here is Penny on Day 2 after some exercise ~ Finally calmed down a tad.

I hope to get a new recipe up this weekend, but if I don’t, you’ll know why! πŸ˜€

    Penny is so adorable. I am sure she is going to love being a part of your family. Aren’t rescues so special. All of mine are, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Hugs to Penny and Hannah.

    What a cutie. I love it when dogs hit the jackpot and find a forever home. A rags to riches story every time πŸ™‚ You can’t go wrong with dog-love. Congrats on the new family member.

      Thank you so much Diana, for some rescue dogs it probably does feel like rags to riches to them, right? We sure are loving her. πŸ™‚

        πŸ™‚ Its good to shake up things a bit. Gibs is 11 and my sis just visited with her 4 month puppy – he was such a joy but at the end of the day I could tell Gibson had had enough…His ears were constantly wet from the pup mouthing them!
