Spencer just informed me that I spelled "puppy" wrong, but, oh no, it is definitely the correct spelling. She was born August 29, 2008 and is now the baby of the house, but, unfortunately, unlike AJ she does not wear diapers.
Bet I got your attention. This one has 4 legs though - yes, it's a pup-pee. Meet Penny:
Up to this point Sam and I have had cats, but living in the country we thought it would be a good idea to have another set of eyes around. I started looking for dogs and found a 6 month old St. Bernard, a breed that is supposed to be good with families. She was a rescue, which I really liked the idea of, and most importantly she was house trained. We never got a chance to meet her because she was very popular, but there was another family friendly rescue dog I was interested in. However, while waiting for a review of the 32 question application with questions such as, "In the event of a divorce who will care for the dog?" and having the foster parent call our vet to verify information before we were even allowed to meet the dog, we started looking elsewhere. That's when we came across Penny.
