Arrival Story: One day Mark alerted me that there was a Basset in the driveway.
I was ecstatic! I had been raised with a Basset for part of my childhood. I went outside and there she was. She was skittish and wouldn't let anyone near her...so I got on the ground and called her and she came right to me. We played for like 4 hours that evening. She had no collar/tag...so, I went and bought a baby gate and food and kept her with me (until I could find an owner).
That night my Mom and G'mom were visiting and my Mom said ..."She looks like a Penelope!"... lo and behold...she was!
That was actually her name!! (Is that FATE, or what!?) I simply added her middle name, Josephine!
The next day the owner came by and asked had I seen a Basset.
Apparently they'd had her around 3 months and got her from a BYB...the "breeder" ...where she was malnourished, had an open nose sore and was heart worm positive.
The neighbors **did** get her healthier...but the hubby did not like Penny and he kept her outside 24/7. I believe he let her loose that day and she found me. She wasn't dirty and their fence had no holes... it's just a feeling.
I was asked if I wanted Penny, as they were planning to take her to the pound.
She wasn't even 6 months old yet...I was overjoyed to be given the chance to have her in my life. She found me and she was my heart and soul!!!!!!
Penny had the most amazingly soulful eyes and sweet spirit. She was born an Angel ...peppered with pizazz and sass!
She might steal your food...(she'd totally try) ... but she'd give you anything of hers you wanted. She never got upset or posessive about anything of hers being taken or about being woken up! Pen was just a fiesty and sweet soul! She was a true joy who could prance or run full speed ahead. I so enjoyed both! She gave the best hugs I've ever had the pleasure of receiving!! ATB 9-29-06.
