Arrival Story:
I was was living at Arizona Animal Welfare League and they were callin me "Autumn". It was a Sunday afternoon and I was hanging out and this man walked in and saw mw and asked if I was "Autumn", I looked at him and wagged my tail. He said I was pretty and asked where 2 beagles were and walked away. He came back a few minutes later and gave me a pat and then started talking to the person at the other end of the leash. We then went in the yard and I showed how I could run and play. I kept checking in, but didn't want to seem too needy. After a bit he left me saying he had to think about adopting me. He came back about 30 minutes later and I was on my way to a real home. After we left he told me a story that he had called his mother and told her about me. While talking he said that if he adopted me he would name me "Penny". His mother told him when she was a little girl she had a red-heade doll and her mother told her to name her "Penny", and since my birthday was listed as the same as his grandmother he just had to adopt me. I am so glad he did and "Penny" is such a better name than "Autumn".

I am exhausted. It has been quite a week-end. I started Friday as normal, up bright and early and off to the park for the daily walk. It was cooler so I got an extra-long walk and met up with my buddies Colby and Frederick. Those to pups are full of energy and can’t focus on the smells at the park as well as I do. Thankfully they know to say, “Hello” and then leave me to my ‘work’. On the way home I found a quarter that I was planning on to use to buy me some treats, but then remember that Arizona Animal Welfare League’s 18th WALK TO SAVE ANIMALS was the next day. I decided that the money would be better off going to my ‘alma mater’.
After I got home and had breakfast, and rested a bit I got to ride in the truck! I so love to ride in the truck. I always have to ride ‘shotgun’ and there is nothing better than hanging my head out the window enjoying the breeze. I went to see my buddy Radisson and hung out with him most of the day. I found out the joys of a ‘hot rock massage’ as I laid on the gravel in the yard and even rubbed my back on it a few times. I was surprised that Rad got in the truck with me. He had to ride in the back because I always ride shotgun.
I had a nice evening with the ‘houseguest’ and made sure he behaved himself. Luckily all my toys had been put away as he likes to tear them apart. I don’t know why he can’t respect toys, they are so much fun and you have to take care of your things.
Saturday, started as usual Radisson and I went on the morning walk to the park. I must say that boys can slow you down, having to stop at every tree, pole, bush, rock to … well you know. Again it was a nice long walk and we saw Colby again. After breakfast it was off the WALK TO SAVE ANIMALS and Rad came with us. Rad didn’t want to stay in back and joined me in the front seat before we got out of the driveway. This was Rad’s first time going (my 9th!) so I showed him the ropes. I was so excited to be there once again that I called out a couple of times so people would know I was there.
I ran into some of my friends that I see every year. I met a new person who thought I was Maddie, from Maddie On Things. I was flattered that someone thought I was so famous. But then again I am ‘famous’ at this walk since I like to ‘sing’ as I walk. I ran into a volunteer who I hadn’t seen since the day I was adopted she recognized me right off and even remember my old name “Autumn”. As always it was great fun and it was an extra walk!
I spent most of the rest of Saturday and Sunday, resting. I did get in daily walk but it was nice to have a lazy day. Radisson kept me a little busy as he like to bark at every little noise he hears; then again he isn’t here all the time so he doesn’t know to routine. That’s okay because he was tired too.


Happy 2nd Birthday to me!

Last week I celebrated the 8th anniversary of my adoption. This must have been a big deal as I got a few extra long walks, got to visit my buddy Rad, which is great because it involved a ride in the truck. I got to ride in the truck another day and it wasn't to the vet! Extra treats and cooler weather. Life is good. I wonder if we can celebrate 8 years and 1 week?


Busy Day

Wow! I have had such a busy day and it isn't even noon. The day began normal enough. Wake up. A quick trip around the yard. Back in the house for a treat. Rest a minute and then out for a walk. Imagine my surprise when I get home and there are men on the roof! I of course had to bark at them to let them know I was there and I would be watching. I went inside and oh the noise. I sounded like thunder and I had to of course bask at it to tell it to stop (it only works sometimes, but I have to do it).

I calmed down enough for breakfast and settled down. Well now it sounds like guns are being shot outside and I have to bark to let everyone know so they can be safe. I was told that the gunshots would go on for a while and I'll probably get a sore throat. I wish I could just nap, but there is too much going on today. What's this a new person headed to the roof? I need to go and tell him the rules.
