Last Friday we had a new addition to our family. Meet Penelope Newton Henderson (aka Penny). :) She is a Boston Terrier, so her middle name is a nod to those dang hills in the Boston Marathon.
Penny came to us a through a friend who has Boston Terriers. Penny had been found, very lost and very skinny. My friend called many animal shelters, vets, and even the police department and could not find an owner looking for her. A trip to the vet led to a microchip scan which led to an owner who did not want her back. My friend's Boston didn't like another dog in the house, and my friend just wanted to see Penny end up with a family to love her.
We were hesitant at first. We knew she would have to be a perfect fit, especially great with Noah and with Amanda's kitty. And let's face it - I need something else to take care of like I need a hole in the head. But my friend brought Penny over for us to meet and it was love at first sight. I love, love, love this dog.
After a week I can definitely say that she feels like my dog. Kind of feels like she has always been here.
