Birthday:
July 30th 2010

Likes:
Tennis balls. She inventories her extensive collection daily and makes sure they all get plenty of exercise.

Pet-Peeves:
Tennis balls stuck under the kitchen island.

Favorite Toy:
A good, well-slobbered tennis ball. Or, perhaps a tennis ball that's flying through the air.

Favorite Food:
Though not very food-motivated, she's becoming a big fan of her new raw diet.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere she can find children.

Best Tricks:
We haven't had much time for teaching tricks, but she already knows how to "shake."

Arrival Story:
Penny is just beginning to show the strains of a difficult, stressful life and her advancing age, so we knew she couldn't keep up with Maggie's activity level forever--a "friend" for Maggie was just the thing. We talked about puppies, we looked at shelters and trolled rescue websites. Eight months flew by and we never found the right puppy. Then, one random day, I saw on ad on Craiglist for a little Border Collie in need of a new, forever home. She had been purchased from a breeder as a puppy, but , amazingly, the owners were unprepared for the demands of a puppy and the high-speed lifestyle of a Border Collie. With a new baby on the way, they just couldn't seem to find time for their pup anymore. We were happy to take her off their hands.

Bio:
Much to our surprise, Daphne has yet to show her high-energy personality that had driven her former owners to put her on a regimen of tranquilizers. She's a low-to-moderate energy BC, with a well-mannered, retiring personality that means she's made herself part of our family with ease. But much to our delight, she and Maggie are thrilled to have one another, thought getting Penny is still too much fun to resist.

Forums Motto:
Has anyone seen my tennis ball?
