Arrival Story:
Penny was a gift, she was given to her "person". She lived most of her life in the Florida Keys with her beloved human Dad, and a few weeks ago she got to have a really fun time when her human sister Hadley visited from California.

Penny was a very smart dog who didn't even need a leash because she never misbehaved or ran away. She was a real people person and loved humans more than other dogs, although she was not fond of beards. Penny had a wild imagination and would tell a few tall tales on occasion. Her favorite story was that before Norman became her person, she was a world traveler, and had once been to Indonesia where she learned the martial art of Ju-Jitsu.

Hello From the Bridge

Hi everybody. My name is Penny and I'm sending you all a note from the Rainbow Bridge. I didn't have much time on earth (only three years!) but it was a wonderful life. I had three siblings (a human girl, a calico cat and a cockatiel bird). Please disregard those other two cats on my profile page (Bob and CNN)...they are distant cousins from California and I barely knew them.

I was adopted by a very smart and loving human named Norman. My secret name for him was Jack....Dad just seemed more like a Jack to me. We lived for most of the time in the Florida Keys, and I would go to work with my person almost everyday. He had a store down on the docks and all the fishermen would say hello to me. Sometimes I got to ride on a boat and I loved laying around in the sun and running like a maniac on the seagrass. He has a super nice human daughter named Hadley and she came to visit us from California a few weeks ago. We all had such a great time together and I'm so glad I had a chance to see her before it was my time to go to the bridge.

Everything was pretty as a picture in paradise, until the day before Thanksgiving, a bad guy drove head on into my Dad's truck and wrecked it. There are some very terrible humans in the world, and this one didn't even stop to see if we were OK. I was in the back seat and I'm just a little dog so I got thrown. I didn't make it. But Thank God my person did, and I would like to tell him that I'm watching him from the bridge right now. I hope he'll remember me when he sees a rainbow.
