Meet Penny, my parents’ dog.
As you can see from the white hair around her muzzle, she’s not exactly a spring chicken.
That’s one reason I was so thankful for the nice weather this past weekend while I was visiting my parents: it gave me an opportunity to take some pictures of her outside. And she loves to be outside.
She’s kind of a cranky old lady to almost everybody these days (she will be 14 in February), but she has always been attached to me. It was hard to leave her behind at my parents’ house when I moved out, but technically she is my brother’s dog (also, she would have been bored to tears while I was gone at work all day).
All the same, it is sweet to see how happy she is when I come for a visit.
(I couldn’t help myself. 🙂 )
