January 1, 1998 – August 6, 2013

Penny was our border collie mix who came to us from a rescue center in early 2000 when she was 2-3 years old.  Penny was an energetic, hair-on-fire and loving dog who especially loved being with Joanne and Pepper-Do-You-Want-Her.

Here is the tribute post I did for Penny when we lost her.

It’s just over 10 months since we lost Penny and though we miss her presence every day, we are reminded of her hair-on-fire and territorial nature each time we’re in the backyard: her chew marks are on the fence posts as a warning she gave to neighborhood squirrels that they were in her yard and they’re lucky it’s the fence post getting chewed on and not them!
