“I am so glad we didn’t get rid of her because she’s amazing.

She’s friendly, lovable and has a zest for life.

I love doing things with her, like going to the park, traveling together, and seeing things for the first time through her eyes.

I will never forget the expression on her face the first time she discovered a lizard in Florida.

Her curiousity has added an appreciation to everyday life that I have taken for granted.”

“People don’t tell you how hard having a puppy is.

I wish someone had told both of us how difficult it would be.

It was a major adjustment.

A puppy requires a lot of time and supervision.

Every second was consumed with my puppy getting into something.

She chewed headphones, rugs, shoes, underwear, pillows and the couch.

Honestly, I was ready to get rid of her, but my boyfriend said Penny is our dogter (dog/daughter), and right now she’s a puppy, but soon she’ll be a dog.

She will calm down.”

“I always wanted a dog and my boyfriend decided it was the right time.

We moved into a dog friendly apartment and we had job security.

We were dog walking and dog sitting and met a particular breed, (a Cavanese) and we fell in love.

We wanted to get a rescue but I have severe allergies.

We wanted a dog that didn’t shed and didn’t bark, but couldn’t find a dog with that criteria in the rescue world.

We asked someone with a Cavanese where she got her dog and then we contacted the breeder.

The timing was just right because that breeder just had a litter.

We went to Pennsylvania and picked out Penny.

She was the only puppy that came up to our lap and fell asleep.”
