Thought for the day …..

Good Afternoon, today is an overwhelmingly  sad day for our family as our beloved Penny passed away.

We still cannot believe that she is gone, and will her miss her forever.

She had been diagnosed with kidney disease not long ago,  and also had a  known heart murmur.

But this day came all to fast for us.

When our four-legged darlings come into our lives we do not think of that day …. the time when they will no longer be with us.

We love them with all our heart.

 

Penny came into our family quite by accident by one fall back in 2005.

My daughter found her in a small town general store, and fell in love with the bundle of fur … who later was named Penny Lane.

She had a brother later named Parker.

Penny was adopted by my daughter and son-in-law and Parker by one of their friends.

 

She instantly became a sister for Elton whom they had adopted the year before ……

Penny loved to be outside ….. loved go on walks ….. she really loved life.

My kids were the best parents ever to both Penny and to  Elton.

They went on family vacations to the mountains and to the lake.

Penny loved to investigate things wherever she was …..

She loved to EAT ….. I would say that food was her passion.

Bananas were her favourite treat.

I am not sure how she managed it but she would jump up onto a kitchen chair any chance she got ….. just to see what was on the table.

There was the odd time that she managed to get up onto the table …. making for some excitement and laughter.

 

Penny and Elton would come for sleepovers to my house and later on when I adopted Alvin they became the three amigos.

Trouble, trouble and trouble.

But they truly loved each other.

 

She also loved to get into things ….. like kleenex ….. loved to shred it …..

 

Our Penny had no trouble speaking her mind, and that was evident when she would jump up onto the chair by the living room window and announce to us who was going by outside.

 

She was sweet, loving and gentle.

 

I would like to share some photos from over the years…
