disclaimer: crazy dog lady post ahead :)

guess who turned five years old today?!


that’s right, my little bean is celebrating her birthday today! she actually had a party at daycare on friday as an early celebration with her furry friends. 


we love desert dog daycare, they always spoil our pups! 


they had fun eating cake and begging for more!

i love miss penelope jane with all my heart. here are a few photos of her over the years–she has always been a little lover and a whole lot of fun. 

picking her up from the airport…


her first night at home, after she wet the bet right off the bat!


loving her puppy kong..


first time at the park–under randy’s watchful eye! i love how she fit right in marshall’s hand. 


first bath..


first snowfall..


hiking in tahoe..


boating at lake mead..


hogging the bones in goblin valley..


she’s a good little camper.


bat dog! one of my favorite photos ever. 


basking with her brother.


she loves cake and ice cream…


but burns the calories at the gym!


her favorite place to be (where she actually is this very second).. cuddled up with her fam.


happy birthday, penny! love your guts and paws and face and everything else about you.

I am dying – these photos are ridiculously cute. Penny looks a lot like a dog we looked after in Mexico (who also loved sweet treats and cuddles) and we also have a Basset hound back in the US. Our Basset doesn’t have a brother or sister right now, but as soon as we get home I want to get her one so she can snooze with her buddy like your two do.

Aahhh, so cute! Happy birthday, Penny!

What kind of dog is she? And is she a super-shedder? I’m currently on a dog search, hopefully getting a pup in the next year!

Janetha August 19, 2013 at 10:01 pm

She is half cavalier, half entlebucher swiss mountain dog.. YES she sheds BAD.. but i guess i’ll keep her ;)

Its amazing how much dogs become a part of the family and the personality they have… mine remembers me even though I live halfway across the country.. sometimes I think they’re smarter than we give them credit for.
